People tend to check in during these times:
Nonprofit performing arts and education institution.
Packed an awesome picnic and blanket. What an incredible venue for a cool, summer night.
The lawn is a perfect spot for any performance.
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...
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.
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!
Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys, Temptations, Four Tops, and Santana all played here.
Great concerts! 😊
We had a great time last night!
Eric Benet and Boney James!
I have an extra Eric Benet ticket at the Wolf Trap this Thursday at 8pm! Contact me if interested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Matt Nathanson and Gavin DeGraw!
The lawn is so worth it!!!!
Great lineup of summer concerts
The acoustics are tremendous.
The ushers are friendly and helpful, be kind to them.
Partying under the star next Lionel Richie.
CeeLo & is fat self is partying.
Post show they let those nearest the Filene Center exit. The lot across the road has to wait. Pack extra snacks and drinks.
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.
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 :)
It was disappointing.
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^)
Ke$ha is great
I loveeeee this place
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. :-)
Bring good booze. Because you can. You're welcome.
Loge front and center - Awesome!
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.
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.
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!!
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!
Lawn seats are great! 1st time for me.
Leave early gets packed
Country, pop, folk, orchestra, dance, theatre, opera—you name it, and Wolf Trap’s got a show. - June issue 2012
See a show at the most spectacular venue in the DC Metro area: a former country barn. For more local tips, follow us on 4sq or check out
Pavilion seats are nice, but with lawn seats, feel free to bring in food & drink. The acoustics are amazing. Have a great time!
