    This is a good venue with good sound and a nice view of the Ohio River. Pillars make strategic selection of lawn seats a must.

    Great concerts but terrible parking and so hard to get out after the shows

    Great music venue! Even better to grab dinner and a drink beforehand at Belterra Park right next door or head there after your concert for an after party.

    Pay extra for pavilion seats, the views from the lawn are not good.

    If you want a good view of the stage, buy pavilion tickets. The lawn is comfortable with astroturf, but most views are obstructed by support beams.

    Make sure if you get parked in any row after 6 in the grass for a concert to be prepare to sit for 2hours.

    Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5 made for a great concert. Especially after spending the day watching the Reds game. Plus the concert was sold out

    Sitting on fake grass is cool because I hate bugs.

    Be prepared to sit in traffic after Buffett, but it's so worth it!!!

    Do not sit on the lawn if you have any intentions of seeing the stage. Support beams at the back of the pavilion almost completely block the view of the stage unless you're at the front of the lawn.

    Grab a seat under the pavilion or bring a blanket and hang out in the "cheap seats" on the raised lawn. Still great sound!
