Known for spectacular fireworks and music performances, the Hollywood Bowl is the largest amphitheater in the United States. It is famous for its architecture that includes arches in the shape of a real hemispheric bowl with the Hollywood Hills in the background. This place hosts many musical events in a year and is also the home of the LA Philharmonic.

With a seating capacity of 18,000 it opens the season with grand fireworks in late June every year. Even during the off season, there are numerous lease events, mostly related to music, going on over here. The tickets sale to the season normally starts in early May. Each performance would have a separate ticket value which you can either confirm from the box office. The tickets would normally cost around $22 and may fluctuate to any ice band, depending on the type of concert. Though, you can tickets for $1 for the bench seats as well. However, if you come in a group of 10 or more, you can get a 20% discount on the tickets. Moreover, you will get to picnic before the concert and enjoy dining at the Patina Restaurant as well. Therefore, groups are always a better choice for the visitors.

If you appreciate music and dance you must visit the Hollywood Bowl Museum as well. There is no charge for the visitors and is open throughout the year. However, the timings tend to change. You must come here every night before a concert during the peak season and anytime of the day during the off season. You can view exhibits on various music genres and also look at the previous programs and audio clips.

There are three types of seats here: the bench seats, the box seats and the super seats. Bench seats often cost the lowest. You can get your own food or buy a meal from the sellers. The box seats, as the name suggests, is a box like ensemble with around 6 seats covered by wood. Finally, we come to the super seats. They are fashionable and elegant parts of the bowl and food is also served right at the seats. These seats may cost as much as $100. If you are planning to visit the bowl, do check the website for the concert and seat of your choice.
