Where can I buy tickets? Tickets to all of the concerts at the Les Schwab Amphitheater are available online (right here!), at the Ticket Mill in the Old Mill District - open every day - Monday - Saturday 10 - 6pm, and Sunday 11 - 5pm (closed for lunch from 1-1:30pm). Tickets are also available at the Box Office (located outside the gates) on the day of the show. For more information call 541-318-5457.
What is the difference between General Admission and Reserved Seating? General Admission only concerts means you can bring a blanket or low-profile chairs and sit any place inside the venue, unless otherwise noted. Some of our shows have Reserved Seating offering regular-height chairs at the front of the stage. (If you purchsed a Reserved Seat, our ticket will indicate either section "A", "B" or "C" and a specific seat number. It will not say GA anywhere on the ticket.)
Interested in a VIP tent? VIP tents at the Les Schwab Amphitheater offers a private party setting for clients and friends. For more information on VIP tents please call 541-312-0131 or email us at [email protected].
Accessibility: The Accessible entry gate located on Shevlin-Hixon closest to the stage. All shows at LSA have accessible seating available. Those with General Admission tickets may sit in the reserved "Accessible" area at the front of the venue. Request an ADA ticket online or in person when buying your GA or Reserved Seats tickets. There are no restrictions to the number of people in your party. (Please note: There is a three person companion limit for the sold out shows of Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews.) For our concerts with Reserved Seating there are accessible plus companion seats available for purchase.
Outside food and drinks: We do not allow outside food or beverages inside the venue, but we do have delicious food and drink available on site.
Food Vendors 2014: Philly Style, Dump City Dumplings, Parilla Satellite, The Pizza Cart, The Patty Wagon, Demetri's, Spork, Jumbo Tamales, Cuppa Yo Frozen Yogurt, Famous Kettle Korn and Coffee In Motion.
Venue: The Les Schwab Amphitheater is private property. No tax dollars go into supporting, managing or maintaining the venue.
What can I bring with me? Each concert has specific restritions on which we must abide. Please feel free to bring empty or sealed water bottles, binoculars, low profile chairs (see more info. below), blankets, small compact umbrellas (ponchos are preferred), small personal cameras (unless prohibited by show). See paragraphs below on exceptions. Any questions please call us at 541-312-8510 or 541-318-5457.
Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews concerts:
NO Chairs, blankets and strollers: For ONLY the sold out maximum capacity concerts of Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson, LSA cannot allow chairs, blankets and strollers for safety and space considerations. This is a strict venue policy for these two shows only. Guests are welcome to sit on the grass, if not standing or dancing. For all shows ADA seating is available if other accommodations are required.
NO Plastic Water Bottles: Jack and his crew are eliminating the use of single-use plastic water bottles on tour by filling up at water refill stations. Concertgoers can bring a refillable water bottle (Klean Kanteen, Nalgene, Silipint or Hydro Flask, etc.) to the concert and LSA will have many additional free water fill stations throughout the venue. Learn more at jackjohnsonmusic.com/greening. No single-use plastic bottles can be carried in or will be sold at the Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews concerts.
Photography: No professional cameras and no cameras with detachable lenses allowed.
Other things: No umbrellas, camelbaks, camping chairs, seat pads, pillows or blankets for children. No recording without permission from the artist. No re-entry into the venue. Once you are inside the venue, you cannot leave and return.
Food. We have gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options available at the venue. If you have special dietary needs beyond those items, you must have a doctor's note in order to bring food inside the venue.
Venue Capacity and Sellout Shows: Any concert that has a “no chairs/no blankets” policy will be posted before the on sale date. LSA adjusts the venue sell out capacity for each concert in advance. For example, the Ringo Starr and Steely Dan concerts have a lower capacity sell out number leaving plenty of room for chairs, blankets and reserved seating.
River: Float, be safe and remain clear of the reparian areas.
Children: Kids 2 years old and younger do not need a ticket to see one of the Bend Summer Concerts.
Dogs: Only service dogs are allowed into the ticketed shows, and must be immediately identifiable as service dogs. If you’d like to see a show with your puppy, check out our BMC Free Summer Sunday Concerts.
Parking: Click here for our parking map. Look for event parking signs throughout the Old Mill District. Parking is available in the OMD and the parking lot on the corner of Simpson & Colorado. ADA accessible parking is available in the paved lot next to the Art Station and street side on Shevlin-Hixon Drive. Accessible drop off is available at the gate on Shevlin-Hixon Drive closest to the stage.
Low Profile Chairs: This is a great example of a low profile chair acceptable for some ticketed shows. The specific measurements are: no more than 8 inches from the ground to the seat, and no more than 33 from the top of the chair to the ground. Please note that chairs are not allowed at the Jack Johnson or Dave Matthews concerts.
