Day two of the BottleRock music festival returns with pop-heavy lineup, from 80’s new wave pop legends Duran Duran, to current pop star Lizzo.
The weather was perfect for day two of BottleRock Napa Valley 2023. It was a day of high-energy performances from a diverse lineup of artists. Lizzo, Duran Duran, Lupe Fiasco, Dogstar, Nile Rodgers and Chic all delivered crowd-pleasing sets, while Tove Lo brought a sex-tinged fire-hot pop set to BottleRock.
One of the first bands to hit the main stage was Nile Rodgers and Chic, bringing a ton of positive energy early in the day. Rodgers’ guitar playing skills were on point and in full display on the Jam Cellars main stage. Chic’s set included all of their biggest hits, such as “Le Freak,” “I’m Coming Out,” and “Get Lucky.” The legendary disco group showed no signs of slowing down, providing the crowd with a much-needed boost after day one of BottleRock.
Lupe Fiasco took the Verizon stage and delivered a powerful set that showcased his skills as a rapper, singer, and producer. The Grammy-winning artist performed an energetic performance that included hits like “The Show Goes On,” “Kick Push,” and “Superstar.”
Detroit rock band Mac Saturn brought the funk to the Truly stage. The five-piece group, known for its high-octane live shows, got the crowd moving with their catchy tunes and lively performance. Frontman Carson Macc’s vocals were on point, and the band’s tight musicianship was on full display. Mac Saturn is a must-see for any fan of rock music and is definitely a band to watch in the future.
Keanu Reeves and his three-piece rock band Dogstar returned to the stage for the first time in over 20 years at the Verizon stage at BottleRock Napa Valley. The band played a set of their classic alternative rock songs, including “Lust,” “Sunrise,” and “How the Story Ends.” The crowd was enthusiastic and although Reeves rarely lifted his eyes off his bass while playing, he seemed to be having a great time. It was a fun and nostalgic afternoon for fans of Dogstar.
