One of the things that makes the culinary stage so original is that the chefs are partnered with musicians, rappers, athletes, and other outspoken celebrities. The resulting show is pure entertainment where anything goes. “We have a lot of fun putting together the lineup and creating programming for the Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage each year,” Dave Graham, of BottleRock Napa Valley, said in a statement. “This stage has become so popular that we are now receiving requests from chefs, musicians, and celebrities to participate and many new friendships between chefs and performers have developed as a result. This year’s lineup is stacked, and for many participants, 2018 will end up being their favorite.” Snoop Dogg, George Lopez, Shaun White, Barry Bonds, E-40, Michael Franti, Ronnie Lott, and Laila Ali are set to join the foodie professionals on stage at the festival.

President of Williams Sonoma, Janet Hayes adds, “We’ve always believed that chefs just like rockstars need a stage to showcase their talents and the Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage is our opportunity to celebrate them in all their glory.  Working with BottleRock to pair chefs with the music and celebrity talent at the festival has allowed us to create one of the unique food festival stages in the country. I look forward to the food as much as I look forward to the music!” Although tickets to BottleRock are sold out, there is still a chance to win tickets by entering the Williams Sonoma’s Ultimate Trip to BottleRock contest.
