      Arrive early!!!! The venue is does not accommodate large crowds getting through security at the entrance. It can easily take 30 min or longer just to get into the Bowl before finding your seats!

      Lights! Music! Action! All under the LA sky!
      The Hollywood Bowl is one of the most unique venues in the world. No matter the show that happens to be on the stage the experience of sitting under the balmy California night sky only deepens your feelings. And you can watch classical music orchestras, rock bands or live theatre while relaxing on the lawn or sitting in stadium seating. The Hollywood Bowl is a fixture on the Los Angeles scene and has offered a variety of entertainment for many years. If you live in or visit LA then make sure you get a ticket to a night under the stars. You'll have them in your eyes for quite awhile after.

      Be sure and see this place!
      It's a great place to visit in the afternoon when your the only ones there or in the evenings for a concert. Easy parking or easy to get to by public transportaion. Under the stars is a great way to watch any performance. You won't even think your in L.A. when you are here.

      A must visit at least once
      This is a great venue for LA, visited many times over years, last year for first time we bought a package and it was a blast, after first visit we became friends with ladies in front of us and each concert we looked forward to seeing them there, The great thing too about Bowl is its magical, located in a valley where all sounds of city life pretty much escape you and leave you to enjoy the sounds of the bowl, except when that one plane wants to fly over. Also the bowl has a great set up with the transit authorities to shuttle people from all over the LA basin to and from the bowl. You definitely want to take advantage of this feature. We come from the Torrance area and it is a relief to know we can take a picnic basket, some wine and not have to worry about parking and the drive home especially.
