Thread: BottleRock 2017

  1. #1

    Default BottleRock 2017

    I know it's less popular than OutsideLands by a mile but I figure if the 2017 OutsideLands thread is up (an August festival) I could launch the next BottleRock thread (May).

    The Festival is to once again occur Memorial day weekend (Friday May 26th through Sunday May 28th).

    Sounds like thus far: Green Day, Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Metallica, and Pearl Jam are all in play as potential headliners. Roger Waters is out as has been pointed out over on the OutsideLands thread (not that I thought BottleRock would get him before OutsideLands).



    Any predictions for headliners and undercard? I'd imagine they probably have more of a budget to work with after the financial success of the last couple of years.

    So no disrespect at all - I haven't been to Bottlerock but would really like to go someday - but is it big enough to get some of those headliners? Some of those headline Coachella/Lolla and other bigger festivals but didn't think they'd be in the running for Bottlerock. That said it does seem to get bigger every year so I could be completely wrong.

    I do wish it wasn't a holiday weekend just to make it cheaper to go to haha

    This years headliners were: Stevie Wonder/Red Hot Chili Peppers/Florence + the Machine

    Edit: Edited to say This years headliners not last years.

    Does anyone remember how much cheaper the blind holiday pre-sale was compared to the general sale? I'm considering getting tickets On December 14th but I don't know how worth it it is.

    Is this why Sasquatch is Thu/Fri/Sat in 2017 - splitting high billed acts flying around the country the same weekend? Maybe Boston Calling again.

    I enjoyed this fest the past two years. The only down side for me was the lack of shade on hot days. My first guess for a headliner would be Mumford and Sons. They haven't played in the NorCal in over two years and are playing at The Hangout Fest the weekend before so they will be in the states around that time.

    Too soon for Outside Lands again (2015), and it'll have been 4 years in 2017 since last Bottlerock (2013) - Mumford definitely a strong guess.

    Which, unfortunately for some of us, rules out Frank Ocean unless he came down for a B2B (doubtful).

    What do you mean by this? Mumford has never played Bottlerock.

    My bad. I must have stumbled across a rumor they were going to be there in 2013 but did not end up, and I didn't verify lineup card. All the more reason to play this year right?

    Don't go to BottleRock if you want to see acts like Frank Ocean

    Considering the lineup drops in less than a month, I'm surprised we haven't seen more rumors/leaks.

    Has anyone ever had trouble selling their Bottlerock tickets for face value? I'm thinking about going in on the blind buy on the 14th but I don't want to bother if it's going to be a uphill battle to off them (if I don't like the lineup).

    Tom petty
    Maroon 5

    My guesses:
    Band of Horses (playing the Greek in LA the day before)
    The Head and the Heart

    Ya tickets usually drop down to about half price for GA. Surprisingly(not really because of the area) the VIP tickets usually keep pretty good value and are always the first tickets to sell out at this fest. I would not recommend buying early. But you never know tickets might be more popular with this year's lineup.

    Has Maroon 5 ever headlined a festival?

    Tom Petty seems highly likely with no Bay Area dates on the 2017 tour and a big hole on the way to Red Rocks May 29th and 30th.
