The stadium was closed so we drove straight to the top. What a view of the city. Plenty of photo opportunities, who would've known. Worth a visit.

While on a tour of L.A., we ended up here as one of the stops. We had driven past it a few times but never thought about touring it. We ended up really impressed by the Hollywood Bowl! We were there during the day when nothing was going on. We were able to walk up into the different levels of... More

It is a little-known fact that on nights when the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra performs, you can always catch their daytime rehearsals that same day for FREE! Yup, even the parking is free. Just drive right in, and you can practically park behind the bandshell. Practices/performances are usually Tuesdays, Thursdays, and occasional Fridays. You can call the box office the day... More

The best way to enjoy the Bowl is from the box seats up front, which have fold down tables for dining. Virtually impossible to obtain. Never fear. There are picnic tables outside the Bowl!

I just renewed my Classical Tuesday series for summer of 2015. I am already excited. I loved the past summers with the LA Phil. I go to some of the other genres as well. It is always such a great night out! Everyone seems to enjoy it! The season goes from June through September!

If you’ve never been to the Bowl and are visiting Los Angeles, don’t get picky about which show is on: JUST MAKE SURE YOU GO. Tickets can be bought online for as low as $15. Arrive in time, bring your own food and wine (or buy there on the spot), have a picnic, go to one of the restaurants or... More

Historic concert venue. Benches were uncomfortable so we had more reason to be out of the seats. There was no echo despite the huge outdoor theater, thoroughly enjoyed my experience here!

I was wondering what our first experience at the hollywood bowl would be like, and it didn't disappoint. Not to mention we stayed close enough to walk, by passing the headache of trying to park. I actually felt sorry for the ppl that would have to wait for hours just to start to get out of the lot. The venue... More

I went here for the first time to see the concert for We Will Survive (for cancer). We didn't have the greatest seats, but there are big screens so you can see the performers. Being outside in the mountains was so cool, just below the Hollywood sign! The music projected well & sounded really good. Plenty of concession stands, mostly... More

The Hollywood Bowl is one of my favorite places to go to concerts. It's a terrific venue to go to with family and friends, have a picnic and enjoy a lovely musical event. The acoustics are so much better than they have ever been making it even more enjoyable.
