This gorgeous outdoor amphitheatre has been hosting concerts since the LA Philharmonic first played here in 1922. Nestled in an aesthetically blessed fold in the Hollywood Hills, the 18,000-seat venue can bring out the romantic in the terminally cynical. It's the summer home of the LA Phil, but it's hosted everyone from the Beatles to Big Bird, and today mixes classical concerts with all manner of rock and pop.

I live in LA for three years before I finally made it to the Hollywood Bowl, and boy was I blown away. The venue is simply stunning and the experience of seeing a show there is beyond anything you could possibly get anywhere else.
When I lived in Chicago, my LA-native friend once chided me for not knowing about the Hollywood Bowl. “You of all people should know,” she said. And seeing as I play music and generally enjoy going to concerts, she was right. I should have known. The Bowl is an absolute blast, and absolutely one of LA’s treasures. I’ll never forget bursting into tears from the first note of Audra McDonald’s show tunes set. Whether your favorite artist is performing, or you’re just looking for a great night of entertainment in the open air, the Hollywood Bowl is one of the first places you should go to fall in love with the city.
The Hollywood Bowl is one of those experiences that you can only get in Los Angeles. Watching a concert or show in the Bowl instantly transports you into another environment that feels miles outside of any city yet it's comfortably nestled between Hollywood and The Valley. If you traveling to LA or your a resident, you have to make it to a show here. Do it. Pick a show. Any show.
Seeing a show at the Hollywood Bowl is an essential LA bucket list activity. The location is just perfect, and it feels like you've stepped into a magical place; the walkways a twinkly and tree-lined, escalators zip patrons up and down the hill, there are picnic areas everywhere. It's so enchanting that you'd never know you're around the corner from one of the city's busiest intersections. As for the amphitheater itself, it's an enchanting place to see a show. Some summers are better than others, but there's always something exciting to see in the season schedule.
I always enjoy concerts here because its not too big so every seat has a good view. To avoid parking hassle, reserve a parking spot in advance here to guarantee your parking spot in advance. http://www.parkme.com/los-angeles-parking/hollywood-bowl
This is great, but for anyone checking this out there's TONS more shows on the Bowl website: Dudamel Conducts..., Pink Martini, Blue Man Group, etc. See you @ the Bowl!
