The Cure will arrive soon. Eric Church, Outkast and dozens of other acts are also on their way.

They'll be joined by thousands of music lovers, looking to enjoy the second annual BottleRock Napa Valley. The three-day music festival runs Friday through Sunday at the 26-acre Napa Valley Expo center.

Before the bands and fans arrived, however, we took a tour of the festival site on Thursday. We also talked with Dave Graham, CEO of the Latitude 38 Entertainment, the group that took over operations of BottleRock in January.

Tickets are still available for the festival. Prices run from $149 (single-day admission) to $599 (VIP, three-day pass). Tickets are available at www.bottlerocknapavalley.com and www.ticketfly.com.
