The Hollywood Bowl is a fantastic piece of LA history. It offers a unique experience and allows you to enjoy a show full of wonderful sights and sounds while having a picnic at the bowl. Take a bottle of wine, some cheese and fruit and settle in for a wonderful experience.

I attended the "We Can Survivor" concert in October and I was absolutely blown away. Although our seats were far back, we could still hear everything as if we were in front row. There was an incredible view of the Hollywood Hills above the stage. It wasn't even too crowded when we got out of the concert, as the paths... More

What a great venue under the stars to see hit performers make their mark. We found a great deal on box seats upfront doing a little online searching in advance and it was well worth the effort. You can eat at picnic tables across the street, purchase food inside the venue or preorder food and have it delivered to your... More

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
