We watched the Tower of Power, Steve Miller Band and Journey concert the other day. We paid the $20 preferred parking fee to park closer to the gate and have a better chance of getting out of the parking lot easier. We got to the arena about 30 minutes prior to the start of the first act and the parking... More

Just before being let in, someone came down the line to inform us that they were changing the blanket/chair policy for the lawn. NO Blankets/chairs allowed....I have already waited in the HUGE line for over 90 minutes and had to trek all the way back across a huge parking lot to put the stuff back in the car, while doing...

Attended the Journey concert on Saturday, 2 August. VWA holds 16-k in seats, hundreds to thousands more on grass area. There is no avoiding parking hassles. You can take steps to make your experience better. Arrive early when the lots open, select a parking spot near the exit routes & yes, this can mean you walk further. Ensure you park... More

View very nice loved the sound and seating. But it's quite a hike to amphitheater. If you have never been be prepared to walk and lots, and lots of stairs.

Stuck in the lot forever after Santana.See it somewhere that you don't have to pay a sitter to sit in the lot WAY after the concert. Unbelievable.

This a great outdoor venue. The views are amazing. They do a good job of using all the grounds to make Fish Fest a blast every year. June 2011.

I was at the venue a couple years ago and choose to remember the outstanding performers, but do have to say, horrible parking, loooong lines for everything, drunk - very drunk patrons, etc. still haunt me. I'm planning to see Lady A tonight, and so excited, but I have to have VIP parking and get a wheelchair at guest services... More

We attended the KROQ Weenie Roast there. They had a side stage on one side of the property that had bands playing for the first few hours and everyone was crowded into such a small area to watch since you weren't allowed to go to your actual seats in the amphitheater until about 4pm or so. It was so hot... More

My wife bought tickets for us to see American Authors, The Script and One Republic. The music was amazing and it was a beautiful night. After the concert ended the real problem began. The way we were funneled out reminded me of herded cattle. They had multiple lines funnel down to a choke point and it took a while to... More

The venue is fine and they have good shows there. Great place to be outside, listen to tunes, eat and drink... However, it has one of the absolute worst parking nightmares after an event when people are trying to leave. I would suggest to be either one of the first or one of the last to leave a show.
