BottleRock Napa Valley, the insanely popular three-day music festival is getting a sister event. The producers, BottleRock Presents, have just announced a music festival in Sonoma at B.R. Cohn Winery. The 2018 Sonoma Harvest Music Festival will take place September 22 and 23 at the historic winery in Glen Ellen. The founder of the winery, Bruce Cohn, is a music industry vet and previously hosted a music festival at his vineyard, so the partnership with BottleRock Presents is a natural fit. Cohn was the manager of the Doobie Brothers for 45 years and experienced the Summer of Love first hand.

“B.R. Cohn Winery has a longstanding music heritage and live music is in our DNA,” explained Pat Roney the president and CEO of Vintage Wine Estates, who purchased the winery in 2015. “Our dream was to bring music back to the estate in a big way, with world-class artists performing in our beautiful natural amphitheater overlooking Olive Hill Vineyard.” The Avett Brothers will headline on Saturday and The Head and the Heart are performing on Sunday. Other musical acts include Lake Street Dive, Shovels & Rope, The Suffers, Royal Jelly Jive, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, ZZ Ward, Rayland Baxter and Con Brio.

“We are very happy to announce the return of the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival at B.R. Cohn,” Dave Graham, a partner at BottleRock Presents said. “This intimate festival has a storied history in Sonoma wine country. No other music festival allows attendees to enjoy this level of musical talent in such an intimate venue, paired with Sonoma’s laid back hospitality, great wine and food. We essentially created this music festival for people who don’t like larger sized music festivals.” Beloved Sonoma restaurants and breweries will be serving the food and drinks at the event. The Girl & the Fig, Glen Ellen Star, Zazu Kitchen + Farm, Brewsters Beer Garden & Restaurant and Sonoma Mission Inn will be on hand along with Lagunitas, Barrel Brothers, 101 North Brewing Co. and Sonoma Springs Brewing Co.

Tickets, which range in price from $225 to $1200, go on sale Wednesday, March 28 at 10 a.m.
