    Ticket booth on the South entrance opens at 5p, so don't feel like you have to trek on the side of the (dangerous) gravel road to get to the North box office. Also, pregaming while in line is a MUST!

    Kristine Untalan · June 15, 2012
  • Mark H.

    A bit of a throwback, Merriweather is a treat, especially when the weather is ideal. Under the roof is best. Plenty of food and drink vendors. It feels like a park turned into concert venue.

    Mark Hamrick · May 30, 2015
  • Morgan C.

    Without a doubt, "The Pit" is the best place to enjoy a show here. It's never too crowded and the acoustics are EPIC. Ticket price is fairly comparable as well.

    Morgan Chase · September 6, 2011
  • Leslie K.

    Lawn seating sucks, pay the extra $ for actual seats, unless u prefer ppl trampling all over ur shit & ass cracks in ur face while sitting down by the late comers. Move your MF'n ass out of my way!

  • Kendy C.

    Best opened live concert in MD. Make sure you eat or plan in advance before because food can be expensive. Allowed water, one bottle.

    Kendy Chibi · July 14, 2014
  • Danielle🌟 A.

    Bring in 5$ footling subs to avoid the $15 chicken tenders. You can bring water too of any size, so I suggest bringing a gallon. Especially in 85 degree weather in October! It's great !

    Danielle🌟 Ann · October 16, 2011
  • Catia D.

    Great for graduation, but my tip goes to the girls! Don't wear heels. It's a long walk and hills and downhills! :(

  • Fordcast Tour

    The @FordcastTour will be at @MerriweatherPP on 8/12 in full-force showing off the new Focus & giving you the chance to win some killer prizes (including tix to the show!). Make sure to stop by!

    Fordcast Tour · July 27, 2011
  • Steve L.

    No shakedown in the lot but decent lawn. MPP REALLY needs to update their video monitors for the show though - old, small and none facing the corners.

    Steve Logan · July 17, 2013
  • Fordcast Tour

    This is the best outdoor concert space in Maryland! Make sure you arrive early to snag a good seat on the lawn!

    Fordcast Tour · August 22, 2011
  • Beth Lacey G.

    If you're seated in the pavilion, keep your ticket super handy. They'll ask you for it a bunch when you're getting seated.

    Beth Lacey Gill · September 23, 2011
  • Amanda R.

    Lawn Seats are totally where it's at if you want a chill relaxing space. Don't forget your water, blankets and food!

    Amanda Remick · September 20, 2011
  • William S.

    When the shows over stick arround or just take your time walking to your car cause its gonna take at least 20-30 min to get out of the parking lot

    William Smink · June 10, 2011
  • Christina

    Offroad it to the box office to purchase tickets for concerts at 9:30 Club and Merriwether. Bring cash to avoid service charges!

    Christina · October 13, 2010
  • Robert K.

    Make sure you bring food or eat in advance! 30 bucks for a hot dog, some chips, a small wrap and one water. RIP OFF!

    I like the seats in the pavilion. I m not fond of the lawn. I n my experience I can't see anything from there.

    Jenna · June 15, 2011
  • Sylvie W.

    Don't spend money on the pavilion seats. The lawn is sloped and you can get great seats at the top.

    Sylvie Williams · August 10, 2013
  • Sisa delaCruz R.

    Great venue and the vibe is niiiice too. But traffic control is non existent and food/beer is overpriced.

  • Mykl W.

    It's all about the pregame. Also they're not that strict about bottles of water coming in. It ain't the TSA.

    Mykl Wu · October 5, 2013
  • Alisa G.

    Lawn seats are fab because you vet the chance to move around and see all the beautiful people!!
