This is the ultimate in outdoor concert fun! Every seat is a great view and the acoustics are crisp! The most recent Affordable Concert Series with Mint Condition, Slick Rick, Jon B and commedian JJ Williamson was a great experience. A surprise performance by Keith Sweat who casually strolled through the audience like he was, well, at home and sang a few of his hits. No grass was visible on the manicured lawn because it was a full sold out crowd. No drama, no long lines to wait - Wolf Creek was accomodating and the atmosphere was festive and fun. We already have people inquiring about our party bus services to the August 3rd concert and a 4th of July event that we need to hurry and learn more about. I invite our guest to return and suggest that you experience this jewel for yourself. Wolf Creek does outdoor entertainment - the right way!
Hello Everyone, I have to say that I am a big Proponent on reading reviews and if I would have listened to previous negative comments about Wolf Creek Amphitheater, I would have missed one the best live performances at a very nice and new venue. Jon B, Slick Rick, Keith Sweat, Mint Condition, and other great talent along with a funny Comedian were absolutely AWESOME!
The show was sold out! I saw a few ATM machines with no wait, the ladies rest rooms are FABULOUS!! There were a lot of stalls with no long lines and clean I might add.
I brought my cooler, panic basket, and alcoholic beverage. Parking was only ten dollars and due to the concert being sold out, parking, I would not say any further than any other parking lot, where you have to walk, but additional space that wasn't paved had to be used. My thought is, if people attend more concerts, parking will be created. I can somewhat understand, and not complaining, because the ticket prices were affordable and not outrageously price, like most and the atmosphere of the venue was absolutely inviting.
There are no bad seats in the house from the VIP, to the Lawn. I must say that typically, the lawn is never my first choice, but the lawn at this venue is first class! I would enjoy the next concert on the lawn. So what it rains, have an umbrella, poncho, lawn chair with the umbrella attached. Just to let you know, it rained just a little bit and it didn't even matter, we were all prepared and the fun never stopped.
The food vendors were Excellent! Taste great and Hot. Don't worry, if you leave the cooler and basket home, you are covered.
As far as Traffic is concerned, we all live in Atlanta, Really? I do not understand the complaints. Normal traffic flow, no more, no less.
I give it four Stars, because the fifth Star would have made it a Perfect venue, if there were some sort of retractable ceiling in case of heavy rain, other than that. I recommend this venue to everyone!
Wolf Creek Amphitheater is an amazing venue!! I visited this venue twice. Once in May and again in June for the Affordable Old School Concert Series. My experience was absolutely amazing. I have never been in crowds of 5000 plus people where I didn't have to wait in line to use the restroom as a woman. The restrooms were also clean throughout the 5 hours I was at the venue.
The venue does not have a bad seat in it. From the VIP to the lawn the views are amazing!! I will definitely not attend Chastain anymore after experiencing Wolf Creek. This venue makes Chastain look old and run down. This is a new venue that will definitely be the place to be in the future for amazing shows!!
The $25 tickets are definitely a must have for the lawn at Wolf Creek. Patrons also get to bring in their food, drinks and coolers. There is no other venue in Atalanta quite like it.
I definitely recommend this venue over any other for concert goers in Atlanta, GA!!
The venue is nice but if you are accustomed to Chastain, get ready for 10 big suprises :
1. No Outside Food/Drink
2. No umbrella
3. Vendors only accept cash
4. ATM didnt work
5. Damn near get strip searched
6. EXPENSIVE Watered down drinks
7. EXPENSIVE Parking
8. EXPENSIVE food
9. Long vendors lines
10. Pookie walking around selling hats and face cloths
The concert acts were awesome but geesh....if I had to chose between Chastain and Wolf Creek, Im treking to Buckhead....I have never felt so violated and used by my very own. Thankfully someone in my group had cash or we wouldve died from heat exhaustion, wouldnt be able to eat, drink or park.
Let me start by saying, if you dont get there early be prepared for a walk. The parking situation has got to get better. We actually had to park in a place that looked like a pasture where cows had been grazing. It was unpaved and quite dangerous during the the mass exit. We were still charged the $20 bucks. There is no parking other than the paid $20 parking. All lines are terribly long and most vendors only take cash. There is an ATM on the outside but it looks questionable. My advice bring plenty of cash. Don't waste your money on reserved seating. Reserved seating only goes to row L, (about 12 rows) right behind that is the general admission seats, which if you get there early enough you can see just as good.
The line to enter the park gets long because the people at the gate are actually taking your purse and doing a thorough search, like we are going to see the president. Since select events are allowed to bring in food and drink, this was not one of the select few, there was a lot of food and wine being confiscated. I heard the usher tell a patron, "lady we dont want your stuff, we put everything over here on the ground. If it is here when the show is over..you can get it back."
Also, there are no umbrellas allowed. At a rain or shine event?? What if it starts pouring down raining? What do they expect us to do. There is no place to go for cover.
If I could give this venue lower than 1 star, I would. If you are a fan of Chastain, I suggest you continue to go there. You will surely be disappointed with Wolfcreek.
Firstly, since there is only one parking lot you are forced to pay $20 to park. I unfortunately bought tickets for a 2 day event so I had to pay $40 (Until the attendant gave me a $10 discount. Everyone else paid $20). Secondly, if you have been to prison you may suffer a flashback because the pat down is to the 3rd degree. So gangstas no gats, dealers no drugs, and Al Queda dont even try it! If you are none of the following prepare to get checked like a passenger coming through customs from the middle east with the last name Laden. Thirdly, many vendors inside the theatre only take cash. There is one atm, where people seriously waited for an hour to use. I was unfortunate enough to find out why. During the main show I went to get cash from the machine. Nobody was there but a guy. Thought he was security. I began using the machine and found it took too long. The guy standing there was actually there to work the machines antenna (like a 1950s tv, no lie) to try to find a signal. After about 7 min of waiting I was unable to get cash because he couldnt find a signal. Wierd because I had 4 bars on my phone. Fourth, DO NOT PAY EXTRA FOR SEATS PEOPLE. I usually get seats because they are usually in a covered area. None of the seats are covered if it rains. PS no umbrellas. So if you get a seat youre just asking for more exspensive rain on your head. Also, the venue is so small if you get a good place on the lawn it would be equal to a seat as far as seeing the band. You just have to arrive early (which shouldnt be hard because most Atlantans arrive late for events). This is the only reason I gave the venue 2 stars. Lastly,to any adult beverage drinkers you are going to want to drink before you arrive. Strike 1,no alcohol is allowed inside (for select events). Strike 2, we waited an hour to get a drink from the vendor. They were nice, but slow. They even smiled when people got restless. But they didnt speed up. I missed an entire performance from one of the performers. I didnt mind because I wasnt there to see them perform. But people were getting upset with the wait. When we were able to order we found out they ran out of some drinks. This caused more irritation and tension in the long line because all they had to was go get the full bar of alcohol they confiscated from patrons outside before they enetered. Sheesh. Lastly, during the main performance I decided to go get a drink because nobody was in line. When I tried to purchase one they said they could not because all the vendors ran out of paper for credit card receipts (and remember I could not get cash from the atm with no signal). Strike 3. I do believe this venue has potential to get better in the future. I hope so because our community could benefit from places like this if run properly. I will say the 2nd night was slightly better. They had a guy selling water and drinks in the crowd. Wasnt as packed so lines at some vendors moved a lil faster. But there needs to be alot more improvements. Saw alot of the same problems as stated earlier.
