    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.

    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.

    Every summer the Vans Warped Tour comes to Cincinnati & with it comes the Keep A Breast Foundation to educate young people about breast cancer prevention & awareness! Prevention is the CURE!

    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 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.

  • Rachel R.

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

    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

    Purchase tickets directly from Riverbend... Skipping Ticket Master = skipping quite a few fees.
