About Us

Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is approximately 90 minutes from New York City at the site of the original 1969 Woodstock festival in Bethel, NY. The 15,000-seat outdoor performing arts venue and the soon-to-be-opened Museum are set within nearly 2,000 bucolic acres. The main pavilion covers 4,500 seats with another 10,500 on a natural sloping lawn, while offering unique backdrops including the original festival site and the majesty of the surrounding Sullivan County countryside. Other venues at the center include a 1,000-seat Terrace Stage, craft and farmers' market and the original Woodstock site, which holds a permit for 30,000 concertgoers to attend major musical events. The arts center's purpose is to improve the quality of life in Sullivan County and the surrounding region by promoting economic development in our region through arts, education, and culture at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.

The venue itself is nice. However as others stated the staff is not only poorly trained they’re also not fully informed. They depend on volunteers a lot so the majority of the staff are volunteers. The website doesn’t tell you how to dress or what to expect when you get there. It does say be prepared to walk. From where you park to get to the seating area could be anywhere from 1 to 3 miles. Once your enter with your ticket you’ll still be walking 1/2 a mile to get seated. There are no shuttles. Just an occasional golf cart going by. Everything is happening in the parking lot. People do tail gate. Be prepared to take in some smoke of all kinds. The show was great. The hospitality is poor. And the location is poor. Sullivan County is just not easily accessible.

Fantastic place to go see a concert, this was my first time there is clean parking was great beautiful scenery wonderful evening and afternoon Under the Stars for the concert. All the staff was friendly the parking attendants were great and if you had any questions there were plenty of people that could answer them for you. If you see a concert scheduled at this location whether you're a high-end spender and when it under the amphitheater or you just want to take a blanket and sit under the stars you can't beat hanging out listening to your favorite bands at Bethel Woods Center it was awesome!

This is a great place to see a concert. Smaller outdoor venue than most which allows you to feel closer to the stage no matter where you sit. The seats are under a cover which can be a big benefit when it rains. The only things that could use some improvement would be a better traffic plan to get people out of the parking lot quicker and some more/better food options. This is my favorite venue to see a concert.
