MF’s Top 10 Summer Music Festivals of 2013

Missed out on Coachella? Don’t worry—there are plenty of other opportunities to soak up the sun and listen to live music this summer. So rally your friends and start planning your escape.

When and Where: May 9-12; Napa Valley Expo in Napa Valley, California

Lineup Highlights: Alabama Shakes, Furthur featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, Jackson Browne, Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Zac Brown Band

The Scoop: Napa Valley is known for its wine, but it may soon develop a reputation for its music. For the first time, BottleRock will take over 26 acres in downtown Napa to host more than 60 bands on three stages (including 25 Grammy winners and nominees), 12 comedy acts, 40 wineries, and 32 restaurants and food trucks. The kicker: You’ll experience it all while soaking up the region’s blissful 75-degree weather.

Insider Tip: Music will begin by 1 p.m. and end by 10 p.m. daily, leaving plenty of time to get familiar with Napa.

Escape From Your Escape: BottleRock allows re-entry, so head downtown when there is a lull in your music schedule. Do not miss the Oxbow Public Market or Terra for a meal or drink.

Unofficial Hashtag Prediction: #neverleavingnapa

Tickets: Available at ($139 for a one-day pass; $329 for a three-day pass; $399 for a four-day pass)
