Located in the heart of Symphony Woods, a huge area of preserved land in Columbia, the Merriweather Post Pavilion has grown from small beginnings to being named as one of the best amphitheatres in the world by Rolling Stone magazine. Designed by Frank Gehry and N. David O'Malley with the firm of Gehry, Walsh and O’Malley, the theatre was originally designed to house the National Symphony Orchestra during the summer. However over time it became popular with mainstream artists, with massive names performing including the likes of The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, and The Who, with some iconic concerts including The Who and Lez Zeppelin sharing the stage for the only time in concert history.

Maintaining its high global ranking among concert venues to this day, the Merriweather Post Pavilion is the number one stop for concert-goers looking to see the top contemporary artists in the world.
