    Packed an awesome picnic and blanket. What an incredible venue for a cool, summer night.

    The lawn is a perfect spot for any performance.

    Michael Lambert · August 6
  • Megan L.

    Bring bug spray and a blanket!

    Beware the regulars who go to Wolf Trap for pretty much everything, regardless of whether they know the band. Many of them talk loudly throughout the show. Bad concert manners...

    Allison Kasic · July 23
  • Allison K.

    If you sit on the lawn, don't expect to see much. They don't have any big screens like other amphitheaters so the musicians on stage look like ants.

    Allison Kasic · July 23
  • Jared C.

    Skip the lawn seats. Not worth chancing bad weather and dealing with the crazy regulars.

    LOVE!!! Went to go see Back to the Future with lawn tickets. As I'd never been there before, I was afraid we wouldn't be able to see the screen, but they had one outside as well. Great atmosphere!

    Half price discount for seniors and students half hour before show begins. If you opt for this, get something to eat beforehand, as you can't enter the concession area without a ticket!

    Katie Willard · June 23
  • Al C.

    Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys, Temptations, Four Tops, and Santana all played here.

    Post show they let those nearest the Filene Center exit. The lot across the road has to wait. Pack extra snacks and drinks.

    Kit M · June 22, 2014

    Get there early for a good seat on the lawn and save money and bring a picnic lunch

    Love this place. We WILL be back. Great performamce, great atmosphere.

    David Kennedy · June 7, 2014
  • Danielle H.

    If you have lawn seats, get there as the gates open! Otherwise you will be sitting all the way in the back on the hill and it's very slopey! Was a great show nonetheless :)

    Danielle Hickinbotham · September 9, 2013

    Beautiful atmosphere

    Ruby Magill · September 3, 2013
  • Mary D.

    It was disappointing.

    Mary Durst · September 1, 2013
  • Angela

    If you have lawn seats, get there early so you can claim a prime spot! It's a great area to picnic as well. Only issue is if it rains... then you're SOL.

    First trip. Ate the Buffett. Saw ABBA. GREAT TIME!!

    Pack some wine, some cheese, some more wine and enjoy the concert under the stars. 8^)

    I loveeeee this place

    Vanessa Vertizblanco · August 5, 2013
  • Cortney B.

    Lawn seats are a much better deal. You can't even take a drink to the seat in covered seating. Having done both, I'll choose lawn every time. With byo sushi and beer. :-)

    Cortney Baca · July 13, 2013
  • Shelagh S.

    Bring good booze. Because you can. You're welcome.

    Shelagh Sitterson · July 10, 2013
  • Dan K.

    Loge front and center - Awesome!

    Dan Kolcun · July 7, 2013
  • ShannonRenee M.

    EXCELLENT venue to see live performances. Bring a picnic lunch/dinner, including adult bevs, spread out your blanket and just chill. Well worth the drive from DC and MD for the experience.

    ShannonRenee Mouton Gray · July 6, 2013
  • Lauren J.

    Don't forget to pack a picnic! You can bring anything in but a keg.

    Elyse is amazing.

    The bartenders and concession stand workers are incredible.

    Elyse Bailey · June 1, 2013
  • Stacy B.

    The best outside venue in the DMV!!! Always get the lawn seats, bring your own food and drinks and have a party on the lawn!!

    Stacy Brooks · April 27, 2013

    Bring your own food & beverage to enjoy while you sit on the lawn of the Filene Center and enjoy any number of the fantastic performances they line up each summer.

    Leave your chairs at home and rent instead. There is a no chair policy.

    This place is an awesome venue to see concerts! This is a pic that I took of Adam Duritz of Counting Crows. Visit http://TheConcertMan.com for a show review.

    Wolf trap should provide a low-noise fan or cooling system for nights like tonight - when the heat index is 111. It's simply humane!

    jenrandall · July 8, 2012

    Lawn seats are great! 1st time for me.

    Kimberly Warfield · June 21, 2012

    Pavilion seats are nice, but with lawn seats, feel free to bring in food & drink. The acoustics are amazing. Have a great time!
