M., Pearl Jam, Joan Baez, Van Morrison, The Gipsy Kings, Paul Simmon, James Taylor, Dave Matthews Band to name a few.

For many artists, The Greek Theatre is among their favorite places to perform. As one visiting patron pointed out, "The Greek in Berkeley is one of those venues you wish were in every city!" The Greek Theatre is one of those extraordinary venues that make any event or concert a truly remarkable experience for both the artist and the audience - one not to be missed!

Another Planet Entertainment has been the exclusive promoter for this venue since 2004 and continues to set the standard for environmentally responsible concert production through its efforts at the Greek Theatre. In 2006, the Greek Theatre was the first major music venue to fully implement an environmental program during an entire concert season. In 2007, APE again made history at The Greek by becoming the first major music venue to implement a venue-wide composting program, with all food scraps, cups, plates, utensils and napkins being collected and sent away to be composted. There is also an onsite "Green Team" to help educate concert attendees as to what is recyclable and compostable.

This is by far one of the sexiest places to see a show in the Bay Area. The sound, lighting and crowd make it all a very enjoyable and intimate experience.


Although the Greek Theater opened in 1903, it had been a favorite outdoor spot since 1894. The name? Ben Weed's Amphitheater.

A premier outdoor concert venue that seats nearly 5000. Don't forget to bring your sweater, it can get quite chilly by the end of the night.


Auburn hair. Show-stopping voice. (We're talking about Florence + the Machine.) See what all the Grammy buzz is about June 12.
