This is very similar to other venues in many towns. It has the shed for covered seating, backed up with less expensive seating, and then "the lawn," the least expensive option, which is a grass-covered hillside, where you bring your own folding chair or rent...More

This is a fantastic outdoor venue that all Raleigh area residents should go to. Easy parking, easy in and out, nice lawn. Drinks and food are expensive, but you can bring your own food for a picnic, although alcohol isn’t allowed.

The venue: Parking was very simple and free. There were ample seats on “the grass”. The experience of sitting on the lawn and gazing at the sky was nice. Food and drinks were extremely overpriced. The concert: Horrible. Let me state this at the beginning,...More

Paid $30 for Premium Parking - they stuck us out in an overflow lot for staff. Meanwhile we realized the general parking actually had much better parking available as we hiked to the entrance. Parking staff were nice but said ‘yeah people are complaining’. Worse,...More

This is strictly a review of the venue. They are totally clueless on how to operate logistically. There was zero traffic control, so we ended up taking an hour to go one mile to get in. VIP parking is total BS as we were directed...More

Spent a great night rocking to The Doobie brothers and Steely Dan! The venue is fantastic. The acoustics are excellent. VIP seats are the way to go. Having access to the VIP area is so accommodating, clean restrooms and not over crowded. The only negative...More

The exit is much like the entrance delays. There is no good answer because the venue does not have a solid plan for handling traffic, so you will be stuck in traffic on either end.
