The fourth annual BottleRock Napa Valley took place May 27-29, 2016, offering attendees “the best of music, wine, food and beer,” and presenting three headlining acts—Stevie Wonder, Florence and the Machine, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers—alongside a stellar lineup of 78 artists who performed on the main JaM Cellars stage and Miner Family Winery stage. Delicate Productions provided audio, video and lighting services for the three-day event. Led by general manager George Edwards, the company tested new technologies at this year’s BottleRock, including new P.A. systems from VUE Audiotechnik, Martin Audio, and Alcons Audio.

Mix presents a photo gallery from the event, showing production behind-the-scenes as well as headlining acts onstage, from photographer Steve Jennings.
