Darien Lake Performing Arts Center Seating Information
As the third largest venue in the greater New York area, the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center seats roughly 21,600 people in a completely outdoor amphitheater. Ticketed standing room only is at the front of the venue, with a pit stretching across the length of the stage. Sections 100-102 make up the first row of reserved seating, followed by 200-204 slightly behind it. 301-306 are on the same level as the sound booth, and 400-406 and 500-508 make up the rear of the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center.
