The Greek is built into a hillside and access from the upper parking lot is very steep. Try to park in a lot below the Greek, because you have to go to the bottom of the theater to enter, so the lower parking is closer and may not require oxygen!

Fantastic concert venues and location. It's comfortable and casual. But when night falls, the temperature drops off very quickly. Dress warm. layer and/or bring a blanket.

Classic tiered surround seating with good view of the stage. The grass area is very sloped. Recommend the concrete seating, bring a pad or blanket to sit on.

Took my teenager daughter to see Lorde in concert here recently. Parking was ok, we got there early and paid $20 to park in a nearby lot, which I was expecting. Stood in line for about an hour, then went in to the venue with a reasonable check from security. Daughter wanted to go in the pit, uh no Mom's... More

So many wonderful performers play here. I saw Placido Domingo. The sound was great and everything was easy to see. There are seat prices for everyone. It feels a little special listening to great music in the open air. Go!

They also have great food... More

The Greek Theater at UC Berkeley is legendary for good reason. The setting among the trees is beautiful, the acoustics are wonderful and the history of the place is remarkable. We knew about all those things. We did not know about the lack of parking near the venue. Most people are left to park quite far away in parking areas... More

Amazing acoustics! Show was all General Admission so we got there early and stood in front in the PIT area. This place only holds 8,500 or so. There's not a bad seat to be found! Good good time!

I graduated from high school here, which was quite fun…but the real joy of this place is that of all the concert venues I have ever been in, the Greek Theatre has the best acoustics. I've seen Van Morrison, Todd Rundgren, Peter, Paul & Mary, Roseanne Cash and Lyle Lovett here, and they all sounded utterly amazing. Do yourself a... More

Great sound, no bad seats but bring something to sit on. Only beer and wine and $9.00 to $11.00 a pop.
