“Great Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Snowden Grove Amphitheater has great seats and acoustics. I've attended both paid-for and free concerts as well as civic activities. The professionalism of the staff, the cleanliness of the facility, security - all are excellent.

“In Serious Need of New Management”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went recently to see the Dave Matthews Band at this venue in Southaven, MS. It had to be the worse concert VENUE experience of my life.

From the time we tried to enter and park, until the time we left, there was nothing more disappointing than the whole set up of the complex. They are not set up for large venue events!!!!!

The parking was horrible, making us park our brand new car in a field that was obviously muddy and soggy from priors day rainfall. There is no signage as where to go and what to do upon entering the one of two or three entrances. We arrived over an hour before the opening act, and only saw one of their songs. It took that long!!!!

We were happy that we entered the facility quickly, almost too quickly. They were more concerned about getting you in, vs. what you actually had on you. This is where the police should have been set up, and maybe done a few pat downs.

There are no full time concession facilities. Everything was temporary, and poorly set up and managed. After waiting in line for a beverage, we were then told we had to go in line for a wrist band, then back in line for a beverage. Cash only, and watch out for the line at the ATM and the fees it charges. What, you can't get water in this line, go to another line!!!!

Lines at the rest rooms were overwhelming, and unless you were a VIP, forget about anything fast.

The event was obviously way oversold, as most of the lawn crowd was overflowing into the walkway areas of the venue. Unless you wanted to stand, there was no other option for the poor crowded lawn area.

If there would of been an emergency in this place, they would have had to drop a horse collar out of a helicopter to get someone out. There must of been some palm pressing with the fire marshall to get this many people packed in here.

Never Never again!!!!! DMB, you should recognize this also, and be booked at a facility that can handle a large crowd. I imagine your profit for the night was quite awesome also.

“Great Place for a Concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We recently saw the Dave Matthews Band here and It was great we had lawn seats. It was kinda muddy but fun. The sound that is produced from the stage is perfect. Even when you record on a cell phone it is clear sound. I sugest that you sped the extra and get the seats unless you want muddy feet.

“Springfest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

This whole complex is fantastic. Ball fields, amphitheater, park, convenient location. Big name performers and one of the best BBQ contests early in the year.
