The BottleRock 2017 set times are out! And like with Middlelands, they are only available through the app that they want you to download at the moment. But fear not, we’ve created a clashfinder to help you see things on your desktop more easily.

WORRISOME SET TIME CONFLICTS:
On Friday, you must choose between soon-to-be stadium rockers Catfish & The Bottlemen (5-6 PM, Samsung Stage), radio-friendly Fitz & The Tantrums (4:30-5:30 PM, JaM Cellars Stage) and up-and-comer Barns Courtney (4:45-5:30 PM, Lagunitas Stage). Catfish & The Bottlemen are one of the best live rock bands out there, so we recommend not missing any of their set.
On Saturday, you’ve got to choose between the legendary Mavis Staples (4:05-5:05 PM, Miner Family Winery Stage) and Michael Franti & Spearhead (4:30-5:30 PM, JaM Cellars). We recommend catching the first half of Mavis and then heading over to Franti & Spearhead. It’s also likely that Mavis comes out during Ben Harper’s set or vice versa, as the two collaborated on a song for Mavis’ latest record.
On Sunday, there’s quite a clusterfuck later in the day. Indie kingpins Band of Horses (6-7:15 PM, JaM Cellars), chill electro-pop The Naked and Famous (6:45-8 PM, Samsung), and soul singer Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires (7:15-8:15 PM, Miner Family Winery). Honestly, I recommend catching about 30 minutes of each set, or splitting between Band of Horses and Charles Bradley. Charles Bradley is always the feel-good set of any festival he plays.
