Besides having to wait for the will call which was a long line, and the usual parking issues that always reside at the hollywood bowl, the show was great! Great price for the show, glad we had Goldstar!

Goldstar enourages guests to bring food and spirits to the event, however, we were being searched upon entering and all "spirits" had to be left behind (thrown away!). This takes away from the experience. Changing the rules for this event was...continued

This is about the 5th year in a row that my family and friends attend Mariachi USA--which has now become a tradition for us. It is truly a fun, cultural and family event to enjoy out in the open air--perfect for a summer outing!!!

This year the performance was not so exiting as last year or year before. Reason is they try to experiment with things like new assembles,eg Trio Ellas (see Los Angleles Times /calendar of June 20 2013) and the best performance as always was...continued

I absolutely loved this event but you Do Not want to bring the kids though. And that was my mistake, thinking they would enjoy the fireworks; in which they did. But the event was a little over three hours long and there was a significant amount of...continued

The entire three rows in front me where filled with drunk, loud and rude people. I couldn't hear the music, nor could I see the stage because they were standing up, socializing and taking photos. There was an overwhelming LAPD presence upon my...continued

Had such a great time. We arrived half an hour before the event started and still managed to find parking however, the line at will-call is about a 30 minute wait. Since you can't take alcohol inside, most people tailgate before getting in. I...continued

It was over 90 degrees while we were standing in line for 65 minutes to get our Goldstar tickets. I was told by one of the workers that there only 2 people at the ticket office working the Goldstar tickets. The venue was poorly run. There was a...continued

The event itself was very enjoyable. However, getting the tickets from the will call window was a highly patient trying experience. I waited over 80 minutes in the hot hot hot hot weather to get them. Not efficient at all!!!
