    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

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

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

    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.

    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... :-/

    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

    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 !!!

    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

    Great concert to see: Bridge School! Big names and a great time for sure. Bring warm clothes because it gets cold in the evening.

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

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

    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

    The whole place feels like a money grubbing venture -- it was lovely for the 4th of July fireworks but I would HATE seeing a band play here.

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

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

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

    Wonderful Plays - professional actors. If you're staying over be sure to hit up the theatre for a lovely evening.

    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.

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

    Save on parking and steal one of the Google bikes littered around the area.

    Parking sucks! 1-2hrs to exit the concerts. This will either allow one to mellow before the freeway or incite road rage!

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

    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.

    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.

    Great venue, not too huge, even back seats are decent. Plenty of room between rows and cup holders!

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