About Pacific Amphitheatre

Originally developed and operated by private promoters, the Pacific Amphitheatre today is owed and managed by the OC Fair & Event Center, a multi-faceted, year-round events center committed to developing the cultural and community interests of Orange County’s diverse populations.

Since the Pacific Amphitheatre was reopened in 2003, sell-out crowds have regularly been attracted to this intimate 7,850 seat venue, one of the most consistently successful destinations – in one of the more desirable concert markets – in the world.

The Pacific Amphitheatre is conveniently located near three major interstates – the 405, 55 and 73 freeways – so access/egress by car is quick and easy, and there are acres of parking spaces on site. For artists and patrons arriving by air, the John Wayne International Airport is just one mile from the amphitheatre.
