Live Nation has proposed the Irvine temporary amphitheater with an estimated capacity of 12,000, with artificial grass on the floor and bleachers flanking the exterior of the site, with a VIP Box seat option at the rear of the floor. Live Nation envisions a four month build, starting in April of 2017, that would allow for a concert season to start in August of 2017. Similar to the Irvine Meadows schedule, we would anticipate world class, diverse artists, playing the temporary amphitheater from late April through the end of October in a traditional season. 

Live Nation envisions using a six poster stage, similar to the America’s Cup Pavilion. This stage will allow for great flexibility in the type of acts the amphitheater can host. Live Nation will pay for 100% of all staging, bleacher, seating, concessions, backstage, office, and restroom build‐out. Live Nation will pay for 100% of all operational, marketing, and production expenses to operate events. The floor would be capable of seated and general admission layouts, to maximize the number and type of events the amphitheater can host. Live Nation would provide ample dressing room trailers, office trailers and high end restroom trailers for the artists and guests attending the events at the Great Park.

Live Nation will look to take advantage of the “Best of Irvine & Greater Orange County” with our selection of Food and Beverage. A heavy focus would be placed on Orange County craft beer like the Bruery, Bootlegger’s, Noble Ale, and Tustin Brewing Company as well as California Wines, pairing them with local restaurants. Food, Beverage, and Merchandise stands will be created and paid for by Live Nation and present an upscale, Orange County feel!

This is a win for all live music lovers and especially the nearly 35,000 fans who offered their voices to the Save Live Music Irvine initiative. The cornerstone of how we build communities is connectivity. We believe what makes communities great is diversity and inclusivity. I don't believe there is a better place to find that than a live music venue and that's why this decision is important. We're excited because when you add music to sports, education, jobs and housing you enhance the experience for everyone and that's how a community is built.

Proposed Interim Amphitheater consisting of approximately 320,000 square feet and accommodating 12,000 visitors and include a request for the issuance of an Interim Use Permit over a three-year period. Concert events would typically occur between 7:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. The following uses would be accessory to the Interim Amphitheater (the primary services provided on the site):

• Concessions

• VIP Zone

• Hospitality Tent

• Box Office

• Security (e.g., Mobile Command Center)

• Restrooms

• Concession warehouse

• Trash enclosures

• Parking areas

The total Project size is estimated to be about 50 gross acres, including a 7.35-acre amphitheater area and a 34-acre parking area. The proposed Project would consist of the festival grounds, amphitheater seating (including bleacher, turf, and box seating), concessions (including seven freestanding tents and a concession area beneath the bleachers), a VIP Zone (including two tents), a box office, a security area, restrooms, a Legends concession warehouse, and a trash enclosure. The stage and backstage area would include offices and dressing rooms. An 18-foot tall berm is proposed behind the stage as well as barriers surrounding the stage, loudspeakers, and the back side of the grandstands. The barriers would be 30 feet in height. Parking would be located in an approximately 34-acre lot north of the amphitheater and would include a total of 4,000 spaces (including 50 ADA spaces and 40 motorcycle spaces) with three potential access points (from Chinon via Irvine Boulevard; from Great Park Boulevard via Sand Canyon; potentially GP-1 via Marine Way, and there would be multiple inbound lanes at each parking lot entrance.

What FivePoint Amphitheatre lacks in brick-and-mortar solidity and natural charm is compensated for by its smaller size and thoughtful layout. The furthest of its bleacher-style seats from the stage are significantly closer to the action than those of Irvine Meadows, and its flexible design allows it to be tailored to individual artists and their fans.

We have identified that Orange County is a tremendous concert market, where people tend to support and go out to more events than in other markets nationally. We are at work on a separate permitting process and hope share more news about that soon.
