One of the best places to go for an outdoor concert. The bathrooms were clean and there were plenty of stalls in the ladies room so there wasn't much of a wait. I had been there many years ago and at that time he hill was mostly dirt. Now it's very grassy and comfortable for sitting on. The large screens... More

This is the best place to see concerts. We go at least 4 times a year and we are never dissapointed. You will even get a free upgrade if there are seats available in the pavilion.

Dte is a great outdoor concert venue. Drinks are expensive but the venue is nice. We were disappointed that Steely Dan didn't play some odd their more popular songs but it was still a good time. Been going there for 40 years!

This has been a fun place for years with some awesome upgrades lately. You have to go there at least once in the summer!

This is my favorite place to go and see concerts during the summer. This is the only venue that everyone seems to just really relax and enjoy the company of strangers.

My first concert was at age 18 in 1977 and most recent was in August of 2016 with many more in between so that I don't have a good total count other than double digits. The Pavillion is still the same but the hill is far more crowded than it used to be. It does now, however have it's own... More

My first experience here was for Jimmy Buffet on my birthday and it was amazing. Tons of parking for all day tailgating. We bought pavilion seats but I could tell the lawn seats were just as good. The only downside of the venue is it's location. There is nothing in Auburn Hills. I also wish it was still called Pine... More
