This was my favorite concert location in the world. So many great bands and festivals played here, and it was a great place in every way. Even the parking was great if you knew your way around. I hope they rebuild it in the Great...More

Just saw Jimmy Buffet for his last performance at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater. I always have a blast! Great place wish they were not closing!

Unfortunately, this place is closing soon. My friends and family have enjoyed this place for several years. It was nice to be able to park for free across the street in the industrial area and have an easy escape from the departing traffic.

I was here last night for the, I believe, 2nd to last show at this venue, given by Jimmy Buffet. This is is a terrible facility and it is amazing from a safety standpoint it has survived this long. Coming into the facility, no one...More

Came here for oddball comedy tour. Venue is nice with ample parking and services. Getting to seating may be a challenge if you have trouble walking but otherwise great location and has a nice time.

Overall nice outdoor music venue. For the Jack’s 11th and especially the KROQ Weenie Roast events there was a good selection of food, drink and merch vendors and the space to have them. The sound was decent for some bands and really good for others...More

Went to see Tesla, Reo Speedwagon and Def Leppard. Traffic was killer so we missed Teslas set. The shows themselves were really cool. The venue is very steep, which makes it stand out from most amphitheatres ive been to. You can be way back and...More

The sad thing is, this was Orange County's sole option for mid sized, outdoor concert venues. And it's sub par at best, and this is due to how the venue is managed, not because of bad sound quality or cruddy vantage points. The venue is...More

Obviously, your experience here will seems on what you're going to see. But generally, the venue is well-kept and the parking is fairly reasonable. It's easy to get to the venue. I've enjoyed the events we have attended here.

If there is, I am not sure it is an official one. This facility defines complete chaos. It is absolutely horrific getting in and out of the parking and there is no order at all. Good Luck.
