The rain could not keep us out and the music was really different and great to listen to. My husband and I couldn't decide if we liked watching Kyle cause we were in the front row or watching all of his followers. We think they are called "Reppy's" (Rednecks and Hippies). Beautiful location for a concert. But the Reppy's could... More

I've seen every type of music in this venue and every time I am blown away by the incredible environment and the fantastic sound quality. Do yourself a favor and see a show here but don't forget the blanket and food. The lawn is the perfect place to enjoy the mts while hearing a rocking show!

The Bravo music festival is a wonderful experience and lends new context to classical music. Often weather challenged, it is not for the faint of heart. However... If you can name that tune our hum or whistle at least 4 bars of various classics in one minute, then please plan to join, if ya can't or it is not for... More

One of the loveliest venues ever to see a performance. Take a jacket and blanket - it gets very chilly as the evening gets later! The concessions are quite expensive, but you can bring your own food and drink as long as you don't bring alcohol or unsealed beverage containers. Pay extra for the assigned orchestra seating if you want... More

We have been to the amphitheater numerous times for the Vail International Dance Festival. It is a beautiful backdrop for performances. Food and beverage service is very pleasant, rest rooms are easy to get to, and it is extremely well maintained. We have enjoyed every performance in this unique setting.

The Amphitheater is an incredible experience of sound, sight, nature and entertainment. Every seat and concert attended has been well worth my time and energy. Reserved or lawn seats are available. You can purchase food and drink or bring your own picnic. Bundle up at the end of the concert, it gets cool on mountain evenings. Enjoy!!! Betty Ford Garden... More
