About Great Park Live

In February 2024, The City of Irvine City Council and the Great Park Board approved the setup and operation of the temporary Great Park amphitheater, Great Park Live. In October 2024, after the FivePoint Amphitheatre announced its closure, the City began working to develop a plan to be able to avoid a gap in the delivery of live music in Irvine. After reviewing multiple options, the City Council authorized the establishment of a temporary live music venue that can accommodate a crowd of 5,000 at the Great Park Sports Complex. The facility serves as the summer home for Pacific Symphony and will host other live entertainment acts for the summer concert seasons in 2024, 2025, and 2026.
