Went here to see a concert and it was very nice. The seating was very well done and we had our own table and chairs with drinks so it made for a very nice evening.

I've been to Chastain twice for two very different concerts, but both were highly enjoyable. I enjoyed front row box seats at the Boyz II Men/En Vogue concert and loved every minute of it. Very cool that for this show you could bring in your own food, coolers, drinks, etc. lovely outdoor venue in the heart of Atlanta. Parking is a pain, so be patient, but overall, I'll be back.

We went to see Dave Koz and friends and it was awesome! It was our 1st time in Chastain and they do have seats in their amphitheater, they are not separated, they are numbered, but they are not separated by arm rest....

When you try to buy tickets, no interactive map comes up on Ticket Master and you cannot call them for information. After you buy the tickets, THEN you can call them and they still don't know much about what you bought. If you are going to a "tabled" event, understand that you get a table in a row labeled alphabetically, the tables are preset in place. Even the staff that night could not figure out where we were sitting without talking to others They expect 6 people to sit in the spot, one on the end, and one sitting with their back to the stage or back to their friends in a VERY cramped space. but that is almost impossible. Many people bought the table, but only had 4 people splitting the cost, so they had room. Found out at the park the trick is NOT to buy a table spot, buy seats and you have lots of room and can bring in small TV-tray sized tables. I tried to get information from the box office, but the best they could tell me was which color parking lot to use. THEN you get many reminder emails about the event, great. However, one said the gates opened at 6 pm when in fact they opened at 6:30. It was hot, we had some people with medical issues, and we gladly would have waited in our air-conditioned car that extra 1/2 hour since we got there at 5:15 pm. DON"T think you can use a rolling cooler, you have steps EVERYWHERE. OKAY, NOW THE GOOD PART: This is a beautiful venue for concerts and the performers enjoy it as well. The bathrooms are well run, they have food there, at high prices, but you don't have to haul everything in. There is a wonderful mix of people that come together for love of the music and the sound is great, just the right volume to enjoy it , but not ear splitting. The natural bowl gives everyone a great view, but remember the concert goes on rain or shine as the stage is covered.

I love this place. It can be a bit tricky to find for those from out of town.
There are lots of reviews of this urban amphitheater, so I'll just give you a few tips.

1. It's very hilly around the amphitheater. There are several lots around, but make sure you pick the best based on your physical condition. There may be a steep climb back to your lot.

2. Dont buy table seats without buying the whole table. Chastain sells 6 seats to a table that cant possible seat 6. Average it out with your party of 4 and get the table. Also, if you dont buy all six tickets to a table, they are still available to purchase. You may be getting really cozy with some other people.

3. If you are purchasing non-table seats, purchase extras on each side of your party if you can afford it. My wife and I always purchase at least three seats. First, the venue allows you to bring food, so there is serious food being brought in. Patrons bring very large coolers, folding table, candles, etc. You need a buffer zone between you and someone else as well a place to put you stuff other than under your feet or in the aisle.

4. If there is a possibility of rain, or is raining, the show will go on. Be adventurous, bring ponchos, small umbrellas, etc. You will have the place to yourself. At a recent show that was sold out, my wife ans I had at least 70 seats around us that were empty.

5. Either leave the concert early or late. Otherwise you'll be waiting forever to get out of the parking lots and through the one way streets surrounding the Amphitheatre.
