    No matter what you see, I definitely recommend getting inside seats. Many artists perform no matter if it's rain or shine. Plus it's always nice to have a definite seat

    Love the SPAC! Good semi-indoor/outdoor music venue. Hosts a variety of performing arts shows like concerts, ballets, orchestras etc.

    Trails were great. If you have lawn tickets it gets really packed so get inside early. And you will definitely need to wash your feet when you leave if you choose flip flops.

    One of the best outdoor venues ever. Splurge for a seat tho, a muddy lawn can be disastrous.

    Come to #SPAC when The Dave Matthews Band is in town. You won't regret this decision.

    If you're in the pavilion, there are bathrooms all the way down the stairs to the left of the stage. No need to go out and have to have your ticket rechecked.

    Wonderful venue. I feel like I grew up on the lawn. Wish they’d have more weeks of ballet and more imaginative programming.

    The music quality was great but compared to Bethel Woods and Hartford this place cannot handle a crowd there's not enough space for all the people they allow in.

    Located in the Saratoga Spa State Park, SPAC is gorgeous! Check out the wildlife-- there are usually woodchucks along the Avenue of the Pines, woodpeckers, rabbits, squirrels, turtles and even deer. A

    It was a wonderful place to see a show. Beautiful setting. Cheaper lawn seats available. Forget the food. Unhealthy choices, Very expensive and 17 dollars for a beer. Really????

    SPAC is a great place to be in the summer! The New York City Ballet is in its residency now and the pre-performance promotions have been so much fun this year! I can't wait for the Philadelphia Orch!

    I highly recommend seeing a concert here. From the Philadelphia Orchestra and the NY City Ballet to Dave Matthews Band and Phish, it's an awesome venue in a gorgeous setting.

    Drove 3 hours to see Rush. Excellent concert venue, but the parking situation needs to be addressed and planned. Rush was at their best.

    Rock, pop, country, orchestral, and ballet. Much more open to alcohol consumption since moving away from Biergarten.

    Best summer concerts!!! Hewy Lewis, Earth Wind & Fire and Meatloaf were my faves in the past. A must-do if you're close by.

    Parking isn't always easy. The lawn kinda stinks. The pavilion by far is worth the price, sound is brilliant, compared to the lawn.

    The back entrance is key. Do not get herded on that main gate bridge. Trust.

    If you're on the Lawn, note that only *short* lawn chairs are allowed in the center section. We got busted by the chair police.

    DO NOT drink beer or alcohol straight from the bottle or can because when the SPAC police find you, you dump every ounce of alcohol you have. they're no joke.

    Worst venue ever. Don't bring a big camera. You'll have to check it. It took hours to get out of the parking lot. Lost the tag on our camera. Just a terrible venue
