Disturbance halts Madison Beer set at BottleRock Napa Valley

Madison Beer

Madison Beer performs at BottleRock Napa Valley at the Napa Valley Expo on May 25, 2019.

Reports of a gun caused a brief panic at BottleRock Napa Valley’s Bai stage on Saturday, but the Napa Police Department says it was a minor disturbance and no weapon was involved.

According to witnesses someone appeared to be trying to get backstage during Madison Beer’s performance, prompting security to clear the stage. Shouts of “Gun!” caused the crowd to rush away, but according to Napa PD and a BottleRock spokesperson that initial report was unfounded.

No injuries were reported and the person responsible was at first detained and then permanently ejected from the festival. The BottleRock spokesman said there was no further threat to festivalgoers once the man was removed.

The performance resumed about five minutes after the incident and fans, who had largely cleared the area, returned to the stage. No injuries were reported, either from the initial report, nor from the rush to clear the area.
