Went to see the DMB for two nights. Security was great, the lawn seats all provided an excellent view, and the vendors, although expensive, were varied. Would definitely return.

SPAC has the best concerts in the upstate area and features the best artists. The staff is always helpful and is watching everything going on. Overall, SPAC is great

Saw a concert on July 3 as a first time visitor to Saratoga Springs. Beautiful venue! Clean restrooms. Good food choices. Good sound from all seats. Reasonably priced tickets. Beer was VERY VERY expensive, $15 for a 24 oz. domestic beer. $10 for am12 oz.
