This pleasant, open-air, 6,000-seat theatre stages big summer shows by acts both national and local. It's a bit like seeing a concert in the woods, and rivals the Hollywood Bowl in terms of LA's most magical outdoor music venue. The only downside: The "stacked" parking means getting out of the parking lot often takes longer than the show, and VIP "Quick Parking" is a pricey $50.

Adored and decried in almost equal measure by the country-rock/alterno-pop community, Bright Eyes main man Oberst steps out solo.

Everyone’s favorite gravel-voiced Canadian dad-rocker returns to L.A. for an evening at the Greek. He’s got plenty of new material to promote, but don’t think that’ll stop him belting out classics like "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" and "When You’re...Pop Saturday May 20 2017

The South Carolina quintet who formed from the ashes of decade-old outfit Carissa's Weird delivers woodsy, dreamy and sadly beauteous epic songs, which favor the reverb-heavy vocals of Ben Bridwell and are clearly in thrall to My Morning Jacket, although...Rock and indie Thursday May 25 2017

The Greek is my favorite music venue in Los Angeles. There are no bad seats, unlike other bigger stadiums, and being here always gives me warm and fuzzy feelings about living in Los Angeles. They've hosted some of the best bands in the world. They do close during the winter season due to the cold weather, but they always come back with an even stronger lineup the following year. Ubering to this venue is always preferable to paying the parking fee.
The Greek is such an LA venue, and I mean that in the best possible way. It merges nature with art, the vibe is electric, and the acts that come through here are all fantastic. I saw M83 here recently and while I hate to say it was epic...it was pretty epic.
It may not get as much attention as LA's other classic outdoor music venue, but the Greek is a great place to see a summertime show. Ticket prices can get a little steep and parking pretty packed, but if one of your favorite performers is playing here, don't think twice about nabbing tickets.
The Greek is an awesome outdoor venue that is intimate yet not too small. I don't think I've ever had a bad seat at this venue either. They have good food options normally and a cute lawn area with picnic tables for you to hang out at during or after the concert. I had the chicken nachos and a margarita and it was pretty good food for a music venue. The parking isn't the best but if you can get some cool views of the city while you're dealing with it!
