    I love Hollywood, & I love bowls, so this is 1 of my favorite places to see a concert. Make sure to bring something to keep you warm, 'cause it gets cold! Portia brought a blanket. I brought tequila.

    CA (See) One of the best venues to hear music in LA. Pack a dinner and grab a bottle of wine (or two) - sit back, relax, and enjoy.

    The Svetyorka Locomotive Philharmonic taught me being a conductor of both a train and an orchestra isn’t easy. Fortunately, the acoustics here should be much better than those on a moving train.

  • Randy C.

    Enjoy a concert from the cheap seats (or from the grass in the back!)

    Pick a warm evening and go see a show. It doesn't really matter if you're into the music; the setting itself is more than enough to make it a great night.

    Rent a seat cushion for just a few dollars—it will make sitting on the wooden benches a lot more tolerable.

    A must go venue every summer. Great fireworks, too! Use park-and-ride shuttles instead of driving.

    If you like concerts and you like the outdoors, this is it. If you don't mind the walk, park at the Kodak center instead and take a stroll from there. And don't forget the picnic basket!

    Go to the Hollywood Bowl and experience your favorite live acts outdoors. Be sure to bring a well stocked picknick basket as the prices at the Bowl are somewhat exotic.

    People generally save on parking by parking at Hollywood & Highland & getting validation for 4 hrs from one of the businesses. The uphill walk is good for you-downhill after the show even better!

    e*starLA · June 16, 2012

    A MUST music venue in LA if you have time - cheap seats on the back lawn and you can bring your own food & drink. Greats who have played here: The Beatles, Arcade Fire, Elton John and Kylie Minogue.

    Park at the Hollywood/Highland complex or take the shuttle from the Grove. Bring your $6 Trader Joe's Malbec, some cheeses and meats. Forget the $30+ tix, the real fun is in the nosebleeds @ $10 a pop

    Instead of parking here, take the shuttle buses that take you to the Hollywood Bowl. It's $4/person, but it definitely beats the post-show traffic.

    Best Bowl parking if you don't mind the walk is Hollywood & Highland $10.

    Sitting in the cheap seats way up high has one big advantage: you get a view of not just the stage, but the beautiful Hills and the Hollywood sign behind it.
