I experienced it for 2015 New Year's concert as well as for a UGA music festival in October. It is a great, large location with good seating. I like the convenience of enjoying ASO without fighting the Atlanta traffic. Once in Athens, there are great places to eat too. The only downside is that while you are on UGA campus,... More

UGA and Athens are both conquered by Bulldogs. The Campus is huge. It takes hours to walk the entire area. Football stadium is one of the biggest college stadiums in the US. Old tree groves on campus, a nice park-like scenery.

We went to the Performing Arts Center to hear my son play in Midfest (the middle school band festival). The acoustics were great! The best seats to see everyone on the stage are in the balcony. The only bad thing about the venue is that they tried to cram too many seats in the place, so there is barely any... More

Good options to catch some world-class artists in Athens, GA. Very appealing for students at the University (read: cheap!). Tickets run out very fast. Book online well in advance.

No one performs better than UGA music majors. Many of my class mates are music majors, and it's always fun to listen to them in a state-of-the art facility.

The UGA Performing Arts Center has the best accoustics of any concert hall in the world. I have heard world class performers tell us that from the stage. The calendar of events always includes some of the very best performers in the field of classical and traditional musicians plus other wonderful entertainers. I have had season tickets for the Second... More
