    Great place to see a show, you just hope you get good weather.

    Large outdoor venue on the outskirts of town. Food and beer available, but nothing special. Bring chairs or a blanket for the lawn!

    Outdoor musical hall with excellent seating where ever you are. Also grass seating available! Food/drinks with addition craft beer section in the back. Parking starts at $20 on event nights

    Saw both Death Cab and Ben Folds Five here. Awesome sound, views of the stage, and set uo

    Love sitting in the grass.

    If the Farm Truck is there (at the top of the hill next to the craft beer), you need to check out the Jerk Chicken Sandwich. So perfect.

    Best amphitheater in the tri-state area. Food trucks are a great addition.

    Phish phreaking rocked it...what a great venue!

    Very nice venue

    Daria Azolova · September 20, 2013

    Park for free at the shopping center on 52nd st. (McDonald's, planet fitness, shop rite). instead of paying $15 to park at the Mann. Also hell of a lot easier to get out.

    David Mooney · September 20, 2013
  • Jim R.

    The Mann is worth the trip from anywhere!!

    Jim Regan · September 15, 2013
  • Chris A.

    Balcony seating for the Carnival of Madness wasn't the best. We would have been happier with first floor seating. Live and learn. Awesome music venue!

    Chris Anderson · August 15, 2013
  • Blair M.

    Nice outdoor venue, but expensive parking ($15!), no non-smoking section since it's outside, and at an all ages show with several bars & little security where's the regulation of underage drinking?

    Blair Maldonado · August 11, 2013
  • Miranda S.

    perfect night - went by too fast! staff was more than pleasant and helpful. facilities were clean. orchestra was PHENOMENAL. (Zelda Symphony!) $15 parking is a bit much, but eh. really great place!:D

    Miranda Suarez · July 27, 2013
  • Emily F.

    Make sure you bring a jacket if it is going to be cold. The walls of the theater are open sometimes

    Emily Fox · July 26, 2013

    Did you know you can get here on SEPTA? Stopping at major locations in Center City, the Mann Center Loop provides an easy one seat trip to the show. Read more

    Lots of people are willing to pay the outrageous parking, so get there early if you're paying to park so you can get close to the gate.

    Jessica Persons · July 19, 2013
  • Jessica P.

    Pay for the cheap seats, the ushers don't check tickets when you sit. As long as you aren't in anyone's seats, no one gives a shit.

    Jessica Persons · July 19, 2013
  • Tom C.

    Bonus: if a show isn't sold out talk to an usher and they may be able to upgrade you to orchestra seats for free!

    Tom Carusona · July 10, 2013
  • Paige C.

    Get and good seat and enjoy!

    Paige C. · July 9, 2013
  • Donnamarie M.

    Do the Lincoln demo. It takes 5 min and is pretty cool

    Donnamarie Mazzola · June 20, 2013
  • Jonathan K.

    Holy sh!t I think it will take just as much time to leave as the concert itself. Also. Verizon 3G doesn't seem to be holding up well. Friend's 4G seemed to be better.

    Jonathan Khoo · June 18, 2013
  • Jesus C.

    Wear mirrored sunglasses, so you can check out all the hot bearded men.

    Jesus Castillo · June 17, 2013

    See the Philadelphia Orchestra at their summer home.

    Kristen Sweeney · February 18, 2013
  • Ken M.

    Why did bands ever stop playing this place? Greatest place to see a show in the Philly area. Glad to see it making a comeback.

    Ken Myers · August 18, 2012
  • Charlotte H.

    Don't sit in the upper seats way too hot.

    Charlotte Hicks · June 24, 2012

    Philadelphia's BEST outdoor cultural arts center! Fun and affordable events happening all summer! Check out or for the list of events.

    Wolfgang Puck delivers seasonal inspired selections at Crescendo, so frequent this spot often and on an empty stomach.

    Nice place- was here for sister's graduation, but complete BS that ya pay $15 for parking in the grass! Especially the graduates!

    Sarah Ramirez · May 13, 2012
  • Justin N.

    I can't believe they have the audacity to charge $15 for parking. This is not center city, the stadium, or the airport.

    Are there defibrillators at the Mann Center???

    Myheartmap Challenge · February 14, 2012

    Check out the myheartmap challenge a UPenn philadelphia contest to find defibrillators. help raise awareness and win money.

  • Petey B.

    Great music venue. Come with very low standards for beer though. It seems they don't know there are other beers besides PBR, Bud, and Miller Lite. On the upside it saved me a lot of calories & money.

    Petey Boone · October 1, 2011
  • Mariana D.

    the best place to watch a show and also the philadelphia orchestra!!

    Mariana D · September 29, 2011
  • Aaron M.

    Don't forget a blanket for the lawn. Oh wait, you're already here!

    Aaron Mclean · August 5, 2011
  • Mary L.

    Use the local bus. It was easy to get in and out of the concert and with just $4 round trip it's a great deal!

    Mary Linam · July 28, 2011
  • Alison K.

    Rocked out to Furthur!

    Alison Krywucki · July 24, 2011

    The Mann is the greatest outdoor venue in the Philly area. Classic venue. Not as sterile as the joint in Camden. Whole lotta love here.

    Ken Myers · July 23, 2011

    $15 for parking??? Vote no with your wallet...park on Columbia at 52th for free. Its the same distance

    Adam · June 28, 2010
