Angel Morales is ready to (bottle)rock….
The Latino singer and his fellow Village People are set to perform at this year’s BottleRock festival, taking place from May 22-24 at the Napa Valley Expo.
The 1970s legends join a lineup, one of the strongest and most diverse music-centric programming slates in Bottle Rock’s eight-year history, that includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Dave Matthews Band, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Khalidand Anderson .Paakand the Free Nationals.
“It’s the deepest lineup that we have ever had,” Dave Graham, chief executive of BottleRock Napa Valleytells Billboard. “No matter how you want to measure it, whether it’s ticket sales, per band, the depth of the talent on the seventh or eighth lines of the lineup or on money spent, it’s our strongest lineup to date.
“It’s important to us to have something for everyone, and the decision to have classic hip hop on the lineup was a no brainer — I know every Eric B.& Rakim song by heart,” Graham says. “And then when you see Maren Morrisand Zedd on the lineup, who together had one of the biggest songs on the planet with ‘The Middle,’ we feel this lineup represents the best of what is happening in music right now.”
BottleRock also features the Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage, showcasing a unique mashup of cooking demonstrations with renowned chefs, celebrities, performers and rock stars. Details will be announced at a later date.
