No alcohol inside for sale, and you can't bring any in. Be warned. If you can deal with that, it's a really cool place to see music. Very unique, considering the ocean, the view of the Newport bridge, and the fort behind the stage. I've checked out one day each of the last 2 years, and despite the dryness, I've still really enjoyed myself and will probably be back for this one.
