Day Two at Bottlerock Festival at The Napa Valley Expo in Napa Valley, California on May 25, 2024



Day two of Bottlerock was as jam-packed with awesome talent as the opening day. The festival has been held since 2013 nestled in the charming town of The Napa Valley Expo in Napa Valley,  California. This event is filtered over three days on nine stages and is always jam-packed with diverse talent. This year the festival attracted 40,000 fans from all over. Bottlerock is so popular that they have even put tickets on sale for Bottlerock 2025  because it sells out so fast.


Mama Said on the Prudential stage 12:30 pm


The Northern California female-fronted rock band, Mama Said was the first band of the day. The growing crowd just added to the intensity of their performance.

They showed the Napa Valley they were in town to jam. The set was amazing and they delivered as they always have over a long, prestigious career. 



The Kid Laroi and Kali Uchis canceled media coverage at the last minute as their photo pits were blocked. Too bad, I would have loved it.
