We go once every summer for a favorite band

The Darien venue has a unique feel of summer, and they feature some fine headline performers and great bands. The venue enjoys a convenient tandem with the Amusement Park, and an... read more

"Security" is a couple kids in tee shirts who have no real authority, no real gumption and make no effort to curb obnoxious dangerous drunks; getting out of the crappy parking lot is a nightmare at best, unless you pay the ridiculous extra fee for a separate lot away from the great unwashed...then you just have to deal with the...

My wife and I went to see the Zac Brown band at this venue and had a great time. It's a great venue for any type of music. We are already looking forward to a concert there next summer.

I was a bit concerned about the parking situation at Darien Lakes after reading a number of reviews stating that people had to wait hours to exit the venue after a concert. For this reason, we purchased the E-Z Out parking ticket for a whopping $50. What wasn't obvious was that the walk in and out of the venue from... More

The Darien venue has a unique feel of summer, and they feature some fine headline performers and great bands. The venue enjoys a convenient tandem with the Amusement Park, and an atmosphere that is cozy and fresh-air. These thee things bring the crowds. They have worked on the pace of the parking exit, which is appreciated. However the venue continues... More

Went to see Florida Georgia Line and not our first time here. We loved the show but I was shocked at how many crazy fights broke out in the Lawn Area. Security were quick to get in and break up the fights but not sure why such a rowdy group this time. We seen Luke Bryan here last year and... More

We attended the Florida Georgia Line concert at Darien Lake. The concert itself was good and standing near the back of the lawn gave us the best view. The parking situation is the worst I have seen. This is my 2nd concert at Darien in a year and the same situation occurred. This last time we paid an extra $30... More

Was I glad we were under roof during a brief but steady downpour! I was worried about parking after reading other reviews, so got a VIP... More
