Hollywood Bowl security MUST see to the bottom of your bag(s) including your lunchbox; does not allow metal fork/knife/spoon, and does not allow any outside beverages. The sell great food and beverages there if you don't want to bring your own.

You cannot beat the park & ride shuttles! So convenient, and less expensive than parking. The buses also get priority exiting the lot after the concert. Treat yourself!

Hollywood bowl has shuttles. I suggest taking it since parking is very difficult and expensive.

We take Metro to Hollywood & Highland, then transfer to Shuttle (from Orange St), they will stamp you, for free access to the same bus after the show. Its cheaper and more convenient. Less hassle being trapped in parking lot.

Buy a "stay cold" bag in advance. Mine is an "Igloo" which cost 12 or 14 dollars. Bring a couple bottles of chilled wine and pre-sliced cheeses and/or salamis (and decent crackers). Add some ice cubes in freezer ziplock baggies for extra chill.

Use the Lot A shuttle. The only way to go for sane entry/exit to and from the Bowl.
