Throughout the years, I have visited for a number of concerts. Just a great place for a concert. There is food and drinks available. The seats are covered so the rain shouldn't be a factor - unless you are on the lawn. But that's how it is with an outdoor facility! There are really no bad seats. The sound is... More

We attended a Luke Bryan concert here and had an absolutely awesome time. Parking can be a bit of a challenge, so arrive early. We spent a bit more and got seats inside, but the lawn can be okay too. Out seats were up high, so we had a great view of the stage. Consider bringing ear plugs since it... More

Where else can you sit on he grass and have a picnic while enjoying great performances from the Symphony, to the Ballet, to James Taylor, to Jazzfest, to Phish ?!? There is an indoor auditorium too if you want to sit inside. But I love to sit under the stars and enjoy the show, which is also broadcast on large... More

Sit inside or on the lawn, either way, this is a great place to see a concert! Ballet, philharmonic, rock or jazz, it's all here!

Love seeing a concert on the lawn at SPAC. There's nothing quite like a seat on the lawn under the night sky and stars.

First visit, bought tickets and was inside SPAC, great seats no matter where your seats are located. Great acoustics. Food and beverages are outrageously priced but can bring in sealed water and food or tailgate before concert. Parking well organized and plenty of it. Will def go back for a concert again.

SPAC is the summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra, one of the world's finest symphony orchestras. The opportunity to hear this wonderful ensemble beneath the stars on a summer's evening is one of the highlights of visiting the area. If you are anywhere near SPAC in August, do not miss this experience, you will not soon forget it, and it... More

I grew up going to concerts at SPAC in Saratoga Springs NY. The venue keeps improving with age. Either on the lawn or seats inside the amphitheater you get a great view of the show. My wife and I take in two/three concerts a summer and are never disappointed.
