Vina Robles Amphitheatre Named Must Play Venue of 2016

The Vina Robles Amphitheatre was recently named one of North America’s “Must Play Venues of 2016” by music industry publication Amplify.

Amplify is the event and live entertainment industry’s most relevant website and magazine. Earlier this year, the publication launched Standing Room Only. This interactive guide connects North America’s top-grossing facilities with their large readership of agents, promoters and managers. In its inaugural edition, Amplify published a list of 20 must-play venues across the United States stating that “great venues come in all shapes and sizes – the best venues stand out for their professionalism, commitment to high-end production and engagement with their loyal consumers.”

Vina Robles’ boutique outdoor amphitheatre was one of only three California concert venues that was selected for the honor. “Artists can enjoy a top-notch customized experience from the moment a show is booked until the show plays off, with the venue’s expert production and operations team, coupled with Nederlander Concerts’ hands-on approach to ensure the best experience possible,” Amplify writes, “the atmosphere is relaxed, professional and exceptionally friendly, creating a sense of home and familiarity for every artist.”

The Vina Robles Amphitheatre was also ranked #77 worldwide in industry magazine Pollstar’s Top 100 Amphitheatre Venue Ticket Sales for 2015.
