“Best concert experiences happened here”

Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre
Ranked #23 of 51 things to do in Irvine
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 April 2017

This was my favorite concert location in the world. So many great bands and festivals played here, and it was a great place in every way. Even the parking was great if you knew your way around. I hope they rebuild it in the Great Park.

Just saw Jimmy Buffet for his last performance at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater. I always have a blast! Great place wish they were not closing!

Unfortunately, this place is closing soon. My friends and family have enjoyed this place for several years. It was nice to be able to park for free across the street in the industrial area and have an easy escape from the departing traffic.

I've seen many concerts here. The last one this past Saturday 10/22 and saw Jimmy Buffet. It's such a great venue and I hate to see it go. Sadly, there will be lots of homes in it's place soon. This weekend is the LAST concert here. Gwen Stafani. There were so many tail-gate paraties in the parking lot. Some I think in the RV's were there just to party as they were still around their RV prior to the concert ending.

I was here last night for the, I believe, 2nd to last show at this venue, given by Jimmy Buffet. This is is a terrible facility and it is amazing from a safety standpoint it has survived this long. Coming into the facility, no one was directing any of the traffic. It was one long mess with people inventing lanes and cutting people off. Once on to the grounds signs directed people to stay in 4 Lanes for general parking, that merged into 2 without no signage, staff standing around and dog eat dog mentality of the drivers. Once in the lot it was pandemonium, people parked however they chose, across multiple spaces, diagonally you name it. There was long circuitous path to get to any parking with no real planning and no staff reigning in the chaos. Once in the venue there is one entrance and exit for both the lower bowl and the terrace and lawn seating. After the show it was overcrowded, people jostling and light pushing. I am not claustrophobic and began to feel uncomfortable. Had anyone fallen it could have created a very dangerous situation. How anyone can be saddened by this venue's closing is a mystery. Once in the parking lot the exiting process was equally chaotic and the filth and debris left behind without removing it or placing in trash receptacles was horrible.
