About the Hollywood Bowl
One of the largest natural amphitheaters in the world, with a seating capacity of nearly 18,000, the Hollywood Bowl has been the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since its official opening in 1922 and plays host to the finest artists from all genres of music, offering something for everyone. It remains one of the best deals anywhere in Los Angeles; to this day, $1 buys a seat at the top of the Bowl for many classical and jazz performances. In June 2021, the Hollywood Bowl was named Amphitheater of the Decade at the 32nd Annual Pollstar Awards. The venue has also been named Outdoor Concert Venue of the Year 14 times by Pollstar. Additionally, it was also awarded the Top Amphitheater prize at the 2017 and 2018 Billboard Touring Awards.
