    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!

    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

    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 :)

    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).

    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.

    Playing the big amphitheater in Mountain View, Green Day have come a long way since doing cramped shows at Gilman. Green Day will guarantee you have a good time, don't miss it ($20 to $50, 7 p.m). Read more

    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.

    Love the lawn seating. Get there early for the best seats. Lawn chair rentals are 5$ if you want them.

    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.

    Sure, buy a reserved seat if you can afford it, but you can also get upgraded from lawn if seats are undersold.

    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

    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.

    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 !!!

    Lawn seats are okay if you get there early and sit near the front. Otherwise I recommend actual seats cause its hard getting around people in the dark

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

    For as long as this place has been operating, you'd think they would've solved parking by now. But no, it's a shitshow. Plan on at least two hours waiting in line to park.

    Don't sit front and center if you have lawn tickets. Sit near the bathrooms because it is impossible to walk through everyone in the dark.

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

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

    Worst venue in the Bay Area. Parking is terrible, traffic arriving/leaving is horrendous-give yourself a 3 hour buffer before and after the show. Not kidding. Also, smells bad and the sound is awful.
