Seems like BottleRock won’t be the only music festival in Napa Valley this year. Between April 5–7, Napa offers yet another big music fest, except this one is so exclusive, attendees cannot buy tickets. ‘Live in the Vineyard’ is a three-day festival with performances from the Goo Goo Dolls, Tegan & Sara, New Kids On The Block and more, and the event pairs with top notch chefs for a night of sweet tunes, good food and an endless wine hangover.
So how does one get tickets to this shindig? Hopeful concertgoers must win their place at the festival by applying online at the event website. New Kids On The Block fans also have the chance to win tickets to the last day of the festival by tuning in to Mix 104.9 middays with Monika and being the ninth caller for select giveaways.
Chefs, wineries and small acoustic concerts are all part of the deal, and most bands will perform at the Uptown Theatre; the closeout concert with New Kids on the Block is held at Sutter Home Winery in order to accommodate the band’s fanbase, consisting of screaming teenagers thirtysomething moms.
