Hollywood Bowl Rules and FAQs

Hollywood Bowl Rules and FAQs

Known for its distinctive shell-like appearance and even more for the sounds that come out of it, there’s no venue quite like the Hollywood Bowl of Los Angeles, California. If you are lucky enough to catch a concert or festival here this summer, there are a few things to know before you go.

Choosing Your Seats at the Hollywood Bowl

Select your seats from five different promenades as well as front-row garden boxes and terrace boxes to find the best tickets for your budget. Around the Bowl, there are three types of seating:

  • Box seats: Canvas-covered, collapsible chairs in groups of four or six divided by wooden partitions
  • Super Seats: Stadium-style, molded plastic seats with cup holders in the center of the audience
  • Bench Seats: Beginning next to the Terrace Boxes and extending all the way to the back of the venue

No matter where you sit, you are in for a phenomenal show.

Hollywood Bowl Food and Drink Policy

Any event presented by the LA Phil allows you to bring your own food and drinks into the venue, including wine bottles, wine glasses, and beer bottles. Large containers, coolers, and kegs are not permitted. Please see specific regulations for events presented by other parties (Leased Events), which typically prohibit alcohol.

Hollywood Bowl Before the Show

Parking lots open four hours before the start of each show and space is extremely limited. Tailgating is not permitted; however, guests are free to enjoy a picnic at Highland Camrose Park before entering the Bowl following the food and drink guidelines for their specific event. If you don’t like traffic, you can take advantage of the Bowl Shuttle Service. The shuttle runs between the Hollywood Bowl and several nearby parking lots.
