The Summer Tanglewood music concerts are great, with wonderful artists like John Williams, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. You can enjoy a day in the grounds and havea terrific picnic experience. What is not wonderful is the traffic getting in and out of the parking areas. If you arrive by 5 pm you may be able... More

We attended a very popular and sold out concert at the Shed (Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga) and had seats on the lawn. By the time we arrived there were people as far as the eye could see and probably a bit further. Where we managed to squeeze in people had been there since almost opening and still we were... More

A breathtakingly beautiful vista with the best music on the planet. Come climb the trees, take a nap on the side of a mountain, enjoy a gourmet meal, go shopping,or people watch. Tanglewood is a place no one should miss!

I visited Tanglewood for the first time last night for a Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett concert. I went with my husband and several friends and we had lawn seats. I loved the venue overall--the show was incredible and it was a very relaxing and fun atmosphere. We brought a picnic dinner and wine...but our setup was lame compared to the picnic... More

Traveled from Arizona to see Huey Lewis & the News at Tanglewood. Could not have picked a better place to see Huey and he killed it. One great experience...thanks Tanglewood and all of your staff and volenteers!

Set in the heart of the scenic Berkshire Mts. of Mass Tanglewood is the home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the summer months. They also feature some popular artists and we've been to see Prairie Home Companion three times. We choose seats in the Shed, so that we've been covered if it rained. The lawn seats are inexpensive and... More

Everyone in Massachusetts knows that an event at Tanglewood is going to be costly. It is closely linked the Boston Symphony and that link translates to money. We found very little in the way of service for your dollar. Our trip was to see "Huey Lewis & The News". They have never failed to entertain and didn't this time either... More

Tanglewood was a great experience. The lawns are beautiful and well maintained, staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The sound carried beautifully to us out on the grass and we popped into the Shed after the broadcast for a fun sing a long. It was great to bring your own food and drink and enjoy the evening. Will return!
