    Best food is Guy Fieri's hamburgers, which are good despite the fact that his name is on the stand. Plenty of beer and hard liquor too. Just watch out late in the concert when the party goers hit wall

    Free sodas for designated drivers. Look for the booth to your right as you go in the main entrance. You sign a sheet, put on a wristband and they'll give you a coupon for a free soda (or 2 or 3).

    General parking is free and not a very far walk from the venue. For lawn seating I recommend a tarp and a blanket as the moisture from the grass will seep through the blankets. Great place :)

    Fun place to see shows. Lawn tickets are a cheap way to go and you can rent folding chairs if you need them and get there early enough. There is a bar at the top of the hill for drinks too!

    Get here early for parking and if you want a good spot on the lawn. You can bring in your own food. Everything is expensive and it's a nightmare trying to leave when the show is over.

    When you enter, section 204 is to the right and section 200 is to the left, if your are in 201 or 202, you can go to either side.

    If you are a AAA member, you can enter the fast track line, which gets you into the venue sooner than the general admission line.

    Yeah, parking is free and VIP parking is only $20, but who wants to sit through that horrendous traffic? Park in the surrounding areas (theater, Costco, etc) and walk in.

    Depending on your sitting, you‘ll have a view the stars in the sky or star on the stage

    Bathroom lines can be really long, I've definitely had to pee in the bushes once or twice! I've had great customer service at the concession stands.

    There are two ways to get into the seating, take the one on the left when you come in for less cattle wandering

    Parking is free for most events especially country concerts, be prepared to take a walk from the parking lot and wait in lines to get in and especially to get beers.

    Surprisingly good sound given the venue. Food and drinks are just ridiculously expensive

    It's a nice place but very few shows during the year. The crazy people from Palo Alto measures the sound of the amphit. And complain ab the noise !!!

    The whole place feels like a money grubbing venture -- it was lovely for the 4th of July fireworks but I would HATE seeing a band play here.

    Parking is an issue as everyone is leaving. Allow for an extra half hour to get out of the lot when the show ends.

    Bring a jacket and thick blanket to sit on if you have lawn/general admission tickets. It ALWAYS gets cold in the evening and the grass dewy

    Parking sucks! 1-2hrs to exit the concerts. This will either allow one to mellow before the freeway or incite road rage!

    Pass on the BBQ chicken tenders. They're not fried crisp; they're soggy from the spicy sauce they're smothered in.

    HATE. No public transit option so getting here & out is a nightmare. Security line takes forever. Lawn seating sucks. Visibility of the stage is bad and the displays are awful. Just a d*mn mess.

    Try as hard as possible to get lower level seating. Any higher and everything looks tiny.

    Find out early what you can and cannot bring. It changes depending on the band's wishes. Do not rely on their website.
