The Hollywood Bowl is about to kick off their *2019 summer season of concerts and it’s looking awesome. One of our favorite outdoor venues in Los Angeles, concerts at the Hollywood Bowl is something everyone must experience!

Celebrating 98 years of live music, this season’s Hollywood Bowl lineup will kick off in a most lovely fashion with none other than John Legend. The oh-so charming singer /  pianist and songwriter, will take the stage at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, June 15, and you best believe there will be fireworks.

Other stand out shows at the Hollywood Bowl include: Andrea Bocelli, Leon Bridges, Vampire Weekend, Gary Clark Jr. Lord Huron, The Roots and more.

Pro Tip: BYOB and Food

BYOB*! That’s right. You can bring your own food, beer and wine to the Hollywood Bowl. All containers, picnic baskets and coolers must be able to fit under the seat or within the box. You can bring wine bottles, wine glasses and beer bottles inside.

*Please note; this only applies to LA Phil presented events. You CANNOT BYOB to third-party Lease events.

How do you know when it’s a lease event? Select the “lease event” filtering option or just click here for a full list of Hollywood Bowl lease events.


New this year, on the Concerts & Events ticket page, the Hollywood Bowl has noted lease events with “Special House Rules Apply.” This makes it so much less confusing. Now you know, before you go!
