 Speaking from experience, I can tell you....  if you've never been to this simply amazing venue you need to buy your tickets now, because the shows WILL sell out.  I promise you, you will have a fantastic time.  If you are lucky enough to secure tickets there are a few tips I can extend to make your adventure more enjoyable:

{SEATS} Well it's an outdoor venue and with that there is only lawn seating, so you'll want to pack some type of seating.  Preferably something with a back and a LOW BACK at that, they do have restrictions so if you take a high back lawn chair you will be pushed to the back and if for some reason they don't catch to with the high back chair, don't be rude to your fellow concert-goers.  Low lawn chairs are the best. 

{BLANKETS} Be sure to pack a blanket, this is a great way to in a sense "claim your space" but also serves the purpose of keeping you on something a tad more comfy than just the grass.  Somehow the space just always works and you will inevitably get to know your "neighbors" so bring your sunny personality as well!

{EATS} The do allow you to bring in coolers with your picnic lunch, but not alcohol.  However, if you want to grab a bite there they've always got awesome food service -- it all comes down to the type of experience you want to have.

{GLASSES} You can't visit a winery and not have wine!  You will find wine available throughout the evening and they do offer plastic cups, but again if you want the full experience you can bring along your own glasses.  Just keep in mind stem ware can be difficult if you don't have a holder for your glass.

{HAT, SUNGLASSES & SUN SCREEN} Depending on the time of day of your concert you will want to grab some protection.  Although we live in the Northwest some days that sun can be a scorcher and I wouldn't want you to get sunburned while you are relaxing to your favorite band.   Often times you will see folks with umbrellas for added protection from the sun, but again, it all comes down to recognizing how it will affect you fellow concert-goers.

{RAINGEAR} Ha!  Of course, I can't leave this out....  depending on the weather forecast there is always a chance that your concert day will fall on one of those days that rain is showering down.  Don't let that keep you from going, because you might find it will be the best time of your life!  Besides, the last time I checked no one ever melted in the rain, expect the Wicked Witch of the East.

{TRANSPORTATION & PARKING} There is ample parking at the venue for a reasonable price, just be safe and keep in mind if you plan on drinking be sure to have a designated driver.  Of course, Uber / Lyft are always an option.

{WELL CHARGED PHONE} You will want to capture photos, so be sure your phone is fully charged.
