First time visit here for outdoor concert (Willie Nelson, Lucas Nelson, Neil Young). Grounds are beautiful. We had seats "inside" and I am glad we did. "Lawn seats" area seemed extremely crowded. There are numerous food & drink stands (the usual stadium fare) and a...More

Porta potties, obstructed lines of site and limited food options despite an expansive selection of alcoholic beverages greet concert goers at SPAC.

We have been to two concerts here, the most recent Pentatonix. For each concert the acoustics in the upper balcony were absolutely terrible, with booming bass drowning out everything else. It seemed like something had to be wrong, but all three acts sounded the same....More

Bathrooms are located by all food stands. There’s an actual bathroom on the side of the stage area but most of the bathrooms are porta potties.
