I love this venue because it's not to big, the crowd is usually easy going, the vibe is relaxed, the shows are fun! There are plenty of places to eat & drink before and after.

Even with rain this was an amazing place to see Radiohead. Bring a pillow to sit on. Even with long lines to enter we still got an excellent seat. Can't wait to come back!

A Berkeley gem. I love that it's outdoors, too. There's nothing like a great show on a beautiful evening at the Greek. And Cheapskate Hill is awesome for viewing and listening to shows that you can't get into for whatever reasons. An excellent mix of...More

We recently enjoyed watching and listening to Bonnie Raitt in concert there. It was our very first visit there. We were really impressed with the theater. Quite frankly, we only learned not too long ago that it was an outdoor amphitheater. We had reserved seats...More
