For a hundred years, it has been a testament to live music’s power to create community, uniting people from all walks of life in a shared experience like no other. Thanks to the vision of Gustavo Dudamel and the collaboration of an astonishing roster of guest artists, our centennial season will celebrate the enduring spirit of the Hollywood Bowl and everything this magical place has meant to generations of musicians and music lovers alike.”

“There is truly no place like the Hollywood Bowl.
Nothing can compare to the feeling of performing there on a summer night…”

We dedicate our programs in this 100th season to all the people who have made the Hollywood Bowl a part of their lives, year after year, and to the new generation, on our stage and in our audience, that is going to carry the magic of this place far into the future.”
