With a beautiful location just along the banks of the Columbia River, the Gorge Amphitheatre offers unbelievable scenery as a backdrop to some of the country's most popular musicians and festivals, including Dave Matthews Band this year on August 29. Read through the following guide for vital details about parking, camping, and seating at this scenic outdoor venue.
Gorge Amphitheatre Seating Information
Gorge Amphitheatre houses five different sections. Closest to the stage is the general admission pit section, followed by the 100-level (101-103) and 200-level (201-205). A series of private boxes is typically available at each performance and is located just behind the 200-level. Finally, a general admission lawn area slopes up the hill furthest from the stage and offers unparalleled views of the surrounding natural landscape.
On occasion, a concert event may only offer general admission for the entire venue, in which case no seating chart will appear on this page.
Camping is typically allowed on Gorge Amphitheatre grounds, but a separate camping pass must be purchased separately from a concert ticket. Be sure to check the listings for Dave Matthews Band closely to see if camping is available.
