BottleRock Napa Valley returns May 24–26, but no festival is complete without food and drink to get you through three days of fun.

That's where the Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage comes in as a mini food festival within the larger music festival. This year's star-studded lineup is even bigger with stars like Top Chef‘s Padma Lakshmi and Gail Simmons, Trisha Yearwood, Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto and Travel Channel star Andrew Zimmern headlining the Culinary Stage (KCBS “Foodie Chap” Liam Mayclem will be the event's emcee).
