The Gorge Amphitheatre is a 20,000 plus seat outdoor concert venue near the Columbia River in George, Washington managed by Live Nation. The Gorge is considered one of the most scenic concert locations in the world.  It is a nine-time winner of Pollstar Magazine's award for ‘Best Outdoor Music Venue’ and was voted as one of the ‘Best Outdoor Concert Venues in America’ by ConcertBoom.
The Gorge is located approximately 150 miles east of Seattle and approximately 130 miles west of Spokane.
The venue offers sweeping and majestic views of the Columbia River as it skirts the foothills of the Cascade Range southbound, as well as extreme eastern Kittitas County and extreme western Grant County. It is also known for its spectacular views of the Columbia gorge canyon (not to be confused with the Columbia River Gorge proper, which begins several tens of miles further downstream as the river turns west to cross through the Cascades toward Portland and the Pacific Ocean).
The Gorge has been home to many historic concerts from artists and bands such as The Who, David Bowie, Coldplay, Janet Jackson, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Phish, Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Radiohead, Van Halen, Blink-182, and Rush.
Apart from drawing big name performers, The Gorge has also played host to an array of popular music festivals, including Area Festival, Ozzfest, Lollapalooza, Lilith Fair, Creation Festival, and Vans Warped Tour. It is currently home to annual festivals such as Sasquatch! Music Festival, the Paradiso Festival, the Summer KUBE Jam, and the Watershed Festival.
The Gorge Campground opens at 12 PM on the day of a show. Fans can stay in the campground for 24 hours on the day of a single show, or until 12 PM the day after a run of shows end.  Quiet time at the campground is enforced from 2am to 8am. Camping at the Gorge requires buying a camping ticket, which is separate from the concert admission ticket.
The campground at the Gorge sets aside spaces for one car with up to two two-person tents or a single RV. There are no RV hookups at the Gorge campground. Sites are set aside by venue staff on a first-come, first-served basis. Potable water, flush toilets, hot showers, and a convenience store are available on the grounds. The campground also has a basketball court, volleyball court, and 24-hour security.
