Came here for a concert. The venue's kind of dirty, tbh, and the seating isn't comfortable. There aren't many exits, either. You have to walk pretty far to get in or out. Men's bathroom has sticky floors. Concert was cool, though.

Attended the Bridge School Benefit concert at Shoreline Amphitheatre, two days of wonderful live music with Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Roger Waters, Metallica etc. Fantastic experience in a wonderful location.

I didn't find the parking to be the nightmare other reviewers said. We were going to an 8 pm show and were nervous about being late and stuck in traffic. We can from surface streets, not 101, and we got in the parking lot in...More

Attended the first ID10T festival here in June 2017. There was plenty of space for vendors and tents for the events. There were great food choices and drink options. Plenty of bathrooms that were clean. Great sound for the music. I would definitely go to...More

Hi, You can rent chairs for $5 each, or you can bring your own, however they have to be the low beach style folding chairs, that sit a few inches above the ground.

There are no hotels that close to Shoreline Amphitheatre but close enough to take a cab so far and then walk in.
