Spent LaborDave weekend at the gorge, and it was nothing short of amazing!! Stayed in standard camping and it was perfectly fine! It's not going to be perfect, but remember, you are camping at a concert not a national park! The views were breathtaking and the sunsets were beyond words!!

The view and feeling experienced the first time I reached the top of the hill for the full view of the Gorge is somethng I will never forget. We traveled all the way across the country for Labor Day Weekend and cannot ever imagine missing Dave Matthews Band again at this venue! ❤️🎶❤️

If you have a chance to come here. Do it. Though I can't think of a better band to see here than Dave Matthews, just get out there and see someone. Anyone. It's stunning and amazing and all the things everyone else has said about the place. It lives up to the hype. So Go. Go now.

This was my first experience at "The Gorge". We bought reserved seats for Saturday night for Dave Matthews Band, pretty late in the game as it turns out. First tip - buy early, and if you don't want to camp, reserve housing very far in advance. We were OK with camping, being outdoorsy, and so tried to find information on... More

I learned first-hand this past September why this venue has been dubbed, "Heaven's amphitheater." This place is unlike anything I have ever seen in my life. The views are breathtaking. Once you come up the hill and look down on the Columbia River and the gorge, you will understand. My friends and I recently camped about half a mile from... More

We camped here and attending the 3 day DMB concert Sept 2016. I have always wanted to go here and see them. The venue is great, the scenery is great, the sound is impeccable, the atmosphere is fantastic. I was nervous that all the hype I built up for this place would be too much and I would be let...

The Gorge has always had the reputation of being a legendary place to this easterner. We were lucky enough to finally get there. A beautiful, clear night and the Amphitheater is at it's prime! The design is typical, but the view of sunset behind the stage is AMAZING! There was an uncommon calmness of the masses attending the concert, perhaps... More

We really enjoyed finally getting out to the Gorge for a show. The Gorge is in the middle of no where. So if you want to avoid the paying a lot for food, I suggest stopping in Ellensburg for dinner. Parking isn't too bad. We bought a parking pass after hearing horror stories about getting out. Things move pretty well... More

Two thumbs (and toes) up for The Gorge Amphitheatre. We went with friends for Dave Matthews Band's 3-night show over Labor Day Weekend 2016, to celebrate the end of their 25th-anniversary tour. It was definitely a bucket list experience, and hands down the most amazing concert venue I've visited. While the artist you see will take care of the evening... More
