The 2022 Hollywood Bowl season celebrates a century of stellar performances at one of the world’s most iconic venues. The centennial season offers a spectacular mix of beloved traditions and history-making innovations, tributes to legendary figures of the Bowl’s past and great stars of the present, the best in jazz and popular music and 34 evenings under the stars with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, 10 of them under the baton of Music and Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel.


Gustavo Dudamel said, “There is truly no place like the Hollywood Bowl. Nothing can compare to the feeling of performing there on a summer night, as our sound seems to pour out from the hills to the thousands of music lovers spread before us, gathered from everywhere in Los Angeles and around the world. We dedicate our programs in this 100th season to all the people who have made the Hollywood Bowl a part of their lives, year after year, and to the new generation, on our stage and in our audience, that is going to carry the magic of this place far into the future.”
