Bathrooms are good and lots of them. Alcohol is quite expensive - bring lots of Money. Or drink before concert and sober up during. Great acoustics great venue that sometimes has fireworks ( 4th of July) for some concerts. ?

Many ways to get here. BUT - If you drive and decide to park here be prepared to pay $25 ( or more if you valet) per car. The parking is stacked and takes forever to get out! All the parking people are gone after the concert and it’s a free for all getting out. This is the BAD part!!

Lots of places to eat (picnic) before going in. Cannot take in your own alcohol to “leased events” which this was. Can have picnic at your seat if no alcohol. Hot dogs ( street meat) , after concert, on way to car park smell good and are delicious. Need a snack for the 1 hr wait to get out of parking!

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!

Try to arrive early when you go to the Hollywood Bowl. It's really crowded there.

Park somewhere other than the Hollywood bowl and find a back way out of the area because traffic is horrendous.

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.
