Our vision is to be America’s premier music and lifestyle festival.
Napa Valley Festival del Sole was founded in 2006 by San Francisco Bay Area attorney and arts manager Richard Walker and IMG Artists Chairman Barrett Wissman. The founders envisioned a festival that would define Napa Valley as a cultural destination. Since inception, the festival has been greatly assisted by the generous support of prominent Napa vintners and resorts, dedicated patrons, generous partners, a committed staff, and volunteers. The community’s goodwill and active involvement make Napa Valley Festival del Sole the success it is today.
Festival del Sole operates in partnership between IMG Artists and Napa Valley Festival Association, a nonprofit public benefit corporation.
