Annoyed at myself for not having gone sooner. If you are over 40 you will enjoy immensely. If you are under 40 you will enjoy almost as much. Plenty of Music, good pictures and good memories.

This venue was built for Concerts; Perfect view, sound, and comfort. Excellent view from the Pavilion or the lawn. Just go, enjoy the show, and stay at the closest lodging to BW, the Fosterdale Motor Lodge(only 5 minutes away)!

Always a good night or day at Bethel Woods. Been going to BW since it has opened and never been disappointed. The only issue is numerous times had purchased tickets but seat rentals can be an issue. They really need to fine tune this issue.Leaving is an issue if you don't leave early.

Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is on the location of the legendary 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. What was "Yasgur's Farm" is now an interactive museum dedicated not only to the festival, but the social unrest of the 1960's which led up to the "happening." The outdoor amphitheater, with reserved and lawn seating, is a wonderful venue. The line-up is... More

This is a very nice venue. Pay extra for the reserved parking. The lots are a hike from the venue. The gardens in the venue are very nice. I don't know if I would go back for a concert since subscribers get the best seats in the house. Which is understandable since most PACs operate like that and it is... More

This was my second time at the venue and loved it just as much as the first time. I went a couple of years ago and got lawn seats. The lawn seats are not far away from the stage so if you are looking to save some money. This time around we were about 12 rows back which was just... More

I have gone to Bethel Woods numerous times, and have never been disappointed. The sound system for concerts in incredible! You can hear the music for days after. I also looked into hosting our wedding here. The venue would be perfect and it's absolutely stunning, but we found a place that suited our style better, and is also a little... More
