San Manuel Rough Draft
Amber A. Jul 9, 2013
Formerly known by many other names, the now called San Manuel Amphitheater has been a destination for every music scene and celebration you can think of for years. From insane metal festivals to graduation ceremonies, this venue does it all, and boy do they do it big! Surrounded by mountains, blue skies, hills, and creeks, the venue gives an essence of freedom for the day. However they're plenty of things to be aware of before arriving. With two separate entrances us concert goers can choose between two parking lots. VIP parking also known as "the lot that costs money", to the left of the main stage, full of grass and shady trees while the other to the right which is free but is full of dirt and rocks melting in the hot sun. Also the free parking lot will lead you to the hike of hell, about a 50 feet steep uphill walk to the gate's entrance. Once inside the smell of sweat, beer, and cheap food ring your nostrils. The venue during the day is clean for the most part, until the event is over and all the drunk tired and worn out animals head home leaving all their trash behind. This venue, and I know by experience has a great clean up crew, great security, and they definitely know how to handle crazy situations. The food quality and prices are not so much on the good side, so I would NOT recommend paying $8 for some nachos that taste like they have been sitting there for a week. With the main stage in the center, plenty of sections for sitting to choose from, and even a field on the side for extra festival activities, there is nothing you can't do here. Crazies light fires on the lawn while loonies crowd surf in the pit. It's definitely a blast for everyone involved even though many get injured, including me. During the day it can be hard to escape the heat, but when the music is playing vibes are flowing and the sun slowly falls behind the hills the real party starts. I would like to point out that the sound this venue offers, is great in every way. Loud enough to enjoy but not too loud to kill those eardrums of ours. With amps from ceiling to floor on stage plus four video towers with more, San Manuel wins the heart over the fans and provides the opportunity to see our favorite musicians in a great place. Unfortunately, due to it's location centered in Glen Helen Regional Park, traffic getting in and out of the venue is massive. I recommend sitting on or in your car instead of sitting in the same place for an hour waiting for traffic to budge. Of course before attending these festivities of ours we should always make sure we are prepared. When given the right plans and an idea of what to bring and what not to do, you can avoid whatever may fly your way. And if you don't, the staff and workers here at San Manuel will help. Whether you come to this venue for insanity or relaxation, you will enjoy your day.
Beautiful Venue, Chill Vibes
Candice S. Apr 22, 2013
The San Manuel Amphitheater, located in the heart of Glen Helen Regional Park, is one of the most beautiful outdoor concert venues Southern California has to offer. As the sun beams down the hills surrounding the city of San Bernardino, one can truly get a sense of escape, as though they are on an exotic vacation with their favorite musical artist. This venue books top names such as Nas, Cypress Hill and Tina Turner, as well as hosts large musical festivals like Ozzfest, Mayhem Festival, and most recently Paid Dues in March 2013. I attended this specific festival, and while it was filled with at least 60,000 people, there was still room to booty pop to Juicy J's "Bandz a Make Her Dance." From rap to rock and roll, the wide range of acts performing at San Manuel ensures the venue will be filled with a diverse audience as well. At the Paid Dues Festival, hip hop heads scattered from one stage to the next, in hopes of viewing all of their favorite artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Immortal Technique and De La Soul. Clouds of smoke drifted above the large crowds, giving off a hazy look to the stunning view of the hills and creating an almost dream-like state of mind. Getting out of the venue by car can be a bit of a nightmare, as you'll have to travel through a maze of cars to finally locate your own. While it can be a headache to get through the massive amount of people, security stays calm and relaxed, keeping the chill, feel-good vibes going all around. The San Manel Amphitheater is beautiful and perfect for those looking to unwind with their favorite performers. The intensity of the hustle and bustle of the city does not lie here, so ravers and dub-heads, this will not be your kind of scene.
