Hollywood Bowl History
The Hollywood Bowl is an iconic music venue located in the heart of Hollywood that was carved
into the hills surrounding the city. It first opened in 1922 and has been attracting music lovers for nearly a century thanks
to the excellent performers it brings to the stage as well as the stunning views of the world famous Hollywood sign and the
Hollywood Hills in the background. The venue serves as the home of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra all year long and is also
the Los Angeles Philharmonic's summer home. There are exciting events taking place all year long at the Hollywood Bowl and
nothing beats spending a night out in the cool Southern California air enjoying some world class music. Be sure to get your
tickets to the Hollywood Bowl from StubHub early because many of the venue's performances sell out quickly.
The Hollywood Bowl is well known throughout Southern California as the place to go for big time concerts.
Musical acts like Modest Mouse, Gladys Knight, Kool and the Gang, John Legend, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Nine Inch Nails,
and more have made their way to the stage at the Hollywood Bowl over the years. Classical music performances by the Los Angeles
Philharmonic and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra are also huge draws to the historic venue.
