NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Despite financial difficulties, the organizers of a Northern California music festival say the show will go on in 2014 with new producers.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (https://bit.ly/1e9d6y5 ) the second annual BottleRock is set for May 30 through June 1, once again at the 26-acre Napa Valley Expo center.

The artist lineup has yet to be announced.

Last year’s inaugural BottleRock was a hit with fans and featured acts such as Kings of Leon, The Black Keys and Jane’s Addiction.

Following the festival some vendors and stagehands sued, claiming that they’d never been paid. The Napa Valley Register reports BottleRock recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

This year’s BottleRock is being produced by a new company, Latitude 38 Entertainment, which has hired Steve Macfadyen, a music industry veteran, to serve as festival director.
