The buzz for the last few weeks around the Bay Area has been that a major music festival is coming to California’s wine country. Well, those rumors have been confirmed with the lineup announcement of the debut Bottle Rock Festival taking place in the Napa Valley from May 9-12, 2013. Looks the organizers spared no expense by booking Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Zac Brown Band, Further, Jane’s Addiction, The Shins, Train, The Black Crowes, Ben Harper, The Flaming Lips, Cake, Primus, Alabama Shakes and Edward Sharp & The Magnetic Zeros.

    Pretty expensive, is there free beer or something? Bonnaroo is cheaper and will get way better bands
