  • The Gorge is by far the most picturesque venue in the entire world. The experience of a concert at the Gorge is unlike any other. Everything from the view of the mountains and the Columbia River to the most perfect acoustics that provide a sound that is one of a kind. The other side that makes the Gorge an experience is the camping at the venue. It is a huge community of people who are all there to have fun and watch great music. The facilities provided are very well set up and maintained, they have it down to a science. It does get a bit cold at night however, so pack layers! Overall, if you are a concert goer who has a bucket list of stops to make, put the Gorge at the top, you will not regret it one bit. Pictures don't do it justice, it's something you must see to believe.
  • Absolutely gorgeous venue. If you've ever considered going but aren't sure, go! It's a must see at least once in your lifetime. We went for the 2016 Labor Dave Weekend and had a blast. The acoustics and views are simply amazing.
  • Unrivaled views and acoustics. The best venue I've ever been to. Getting everyone out was a bit tough, and the venue has a policy of banding your but still asking for ID when you purchase a beverage. Prices are high, but that's to be expected at a concert location like this.
  • One of the most beautiful venues in the country. Sound is naturally enhanced by the rock. View can't be beat. Camping is the way to go. The crowd varies a lot by the artist. DMB is always a great show. Security is getting a lot tighter but I get it. Premium camping is less of a value than it used to be but still worth it.
  • Labor day weekend 2016 for Dave Matthews was my first time at the Gorge Amphitheater. This place is absolutely stunning and definetly by far the most scenic outdoor concert venue I've ever been to. We purchased standard camping but they ran out of space so we were upgraded to gold which placed us closer to the venue and gave us a quieter campground. Overall awesome!
