Unlike anywhere else in Nashville, the Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel is an outdoor music venue with a capacity for 4500 guests. Located on the Fontanel Mansion & Farm property that was once the family home of megastar and Country Music Hall of Fame(R) member and two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Barbara Mandrell, the Woods Amphitheater is an added value to Middle Tennessee. Featuring state-of-the-art sound and a cozy wooded setting, the natural amphitheater space of the White's Creek valley will be the must-see (and must-hear) venue of the South. The Woods at Fontanel will also be available for corporate picnics and events. With The Inn at Fontanel, the Woods Amphitheater, Pritchard's Distillery the Pepsi Studio Gallery, Cafe Fontanella, Goo Goo Outpost, AdventureWorks Ziplines, The Trails and Metro Parks Greenway, it is easy to see why Fontanel is becoming one of Nashville's premier destinations.

This was the first concert I've ever been to that offered free parking, so for that and the ease of getting into / out of the venue I really enjoyed it. However, like the other concerts the cost of anything is way overpriced and I felt like the "lawn" seats provided just enough angle and elevation to see the stage.... More

I have to print a retraction to my 2014 review of The Woods. After learning about the pain they are causing their neighbors and after hearing the Australian Pink Floyd show(in my house miles away with the windows shut and a/c on) I can't support them. Fontanel is also planning on building a hotel and convention center on sacred Trail... More

The facility was easy to get to well organized and the sound was great. The departure was easy and well controlled. If you are turning right when exiting go the left exit. If you want to turn left go to the right exit. Don't spend money on the wine $12 for a swallow WAY overpriced. Beer is the typical $9... More

The good: Close to Ri'chard's Cafe (Cajun Restaurant). Easy to get to Fontanel and depart thereof. Parking is included in price of ticket. Decent walk between parking and venue. Seats, view of the stage, and sound were all good. The bad: Portable toilets. Grass seats were not sloped enough. VIP seating was behind us, too far away from the stage... More

I took my 10-year-old to see Shawn Mendes here in Aug 2016. The venue itself is really sweet. Super cozy, and at night, the twinkle lights on the far structure of the venue's border look beautiful. It's a perfect size for a "mid-range" concert. The food trucks on site were a hit, and the bathrooms (although port-a-pots) are clean and... More

Thank goodness the weather cooperated! This is a VERY cool venue. Nestled in a hollow with the stage in front. Get there early if you don't order floor seats. Drinks and food are expensive, but it was a grand experience and I will not hesitate to return if its a concert I want to hear.

Went to see America and Michael McDonald last night. Great concert! The area was lovely. Had rained a little in the morning so ground was a little damp. They had put hay down and I wish they had put a little more where the chairs were located. Had great seats, could see the bands easily. There were plenty of restrooms... More

I cannot even begin to tell you how unbelievably bad this place is!! It took an hour to even enter the gate. Parking was a cluster, the staff was rude, could not find our seats, it goes on and on. We will NEVER go back to this venue. Also, a hint for management, try to now the grass before a... More
