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

    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 !!!

    Try as hard as possible to get lower level seating. Any higher and everything looks tiny.

    Some of their traffic directors during large events are HORRIBLE. Where do they hire these guys?

    At the oddball comedy and they do not allow laptops into the you have to deposit your laptop at security (no locker FYI)

    You can bring in your own refreshments, but they'll steal your bottle caps.

    Sophia Hammett · August 30, 2014

    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 :)

    Nicole Horton · August 28, 2014
  • Rebecca H.

    Avoid the parking lots altogether and find street parking about a mile away.

    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!

    Park near the 7-11 and walk in; parking can be out of control here

    Don't bring your iPad as they'll make you check it or take it back to the car. :( camera is too good!

    Bob Campbell · October 26, 2013
  • Dennis C.

    If the event is sold out, allow for an hour to park and another hour to leave. Traffic is rough.

    Dennis Clark · September 27, 2013
  • Chad E.

    The parking situation here is a complete nightmare. You should be prepared for the worst experience of your life.

    Chad Everett · September 27, 2013
  • Andrew R.

    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.

    Andrew Rich · September 27, 2013
  • Jamie H.

    Worst system ever for parking. No wonder they set the starting time at 5pm for a show that really starts at 9pm...

    Jamie Hoang · September 21, 2013

    Great outdoors for concerts

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

    Lawn rox, forget seats until main act

  • Quirks B.

    Fun event but the lines for everything are incredibly long and most of the workers incompetent... Also, if you want anything to eat or drink (even water) it's a minimum of $4... :-/

    Quirks B. · May 20, 2013
  • Angel J.

    Great events. My favorite events held here are Warped tour, Mayhem Fest, and Ozzfest.

    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).

    Mary Burns · September 30, 2012
  • Sandro S.

    bring your own beer and food, tailgate at the parking lot before going in

    It's best to car pool when attending shows here

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

    Mark Estrella · May 5, 2012
  • Brian P.

    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

    Brian Parchman · April 28, 2012

    Great place to check out concerts. If you're into pop/rock, listen to "Angels and Demons" by rising artist Melissa Otero on iTunes. Music video drops on VEVO April 30th. Read more

    Make sure you order a beer before 9:45pm or you will be stuck with water :/

  • David E.

    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.

    David E. · January 29, 2012

    One of the best places to see an outdoor concert
