The Mann is one of my favorite outdoor venues in Philadelphia. I attend a few concerts here each season. I prefer this venue to the Dell East because it has partial covering in case of poor weather. My last concert was Frankie Beverly & Maze & Patti Labelle. The sound and lighting for the stage is great, no matter what... More

Pokemon Orchestra!! A good amount of lawn parking. Watch out for birds that will poop on you during the show! We sat in the B section even though it's undercovers. Everyone was wondering if people were throwing things or what was dropping during the show until intermission.

Very nice venue. Saw sold out Jack Johnson show. Like the food trucks at the top of the hill. Would definitely attend another concert here.

Very well laid out for sound and visibility. We were outside the covered area which made it hard to see the entertainer close up but they do have a large screen which helped. I would recommend staying under the covered area for better visibility.

July 8th - 9th, 2014 : We went to the Mann to see Phish (Vermont based rock band;) and must say, how impressed I was with the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful trees in the surrounding park. While I cannot comment on the sound from the Lawn at the rear of the venue, I will say that the sound was... More

Wonderful place to be outdoors and listen to concerts. Just right size and reasonable prices. Can get seats under the roof or cheaper tics on lawn. Great venues. Must go.

Had a wonderful time, enjoying a concert given by the Philadelphia Orchestra in Fairmount Park. I arrived in time to get a seat under the canopy. Acoustics are excellent, and the canopy was airy, seats were comfortable. Parking was $15 but I took a chance on street parking and did OK.

The Mann Center has a gorgeous view. The venue itself is also lovely. There was a bit of a traffic problem driving into the event, but I guess that is to be expected. My wife and out did indulge in the picnic dinner which was OK. The chicken was tasty and everything else (pasta salad, tomato/basil salad, fruit salad, etc.)... More

Even though I go o alot of concerts in the Philly area this was my first time at the Mann. This will not be my last for sure. It was the easiest venue to get to in Philly that I've ever been to. No traffic into the Mann but a little confusion by the lot attendants getting people out. The... More

When driving into Philadelphia we noticed a poster about a Gladiator play at the Mann Center in the evening. We tried to buy tickets online, but as it was not clear on the website what kind of seating is available we decided to go to the box office. It turned out we were offered the exact same places the online... More
