Jiffy Lube Live Details

Jiffy Lube Live

Once called the Nissan Pavilion, Jiffy Lube Live is a 25,262-seat amphitheater in Bristow, Virginia. It's one of the largest venues in the Metropolitan D.C. area and has played host to a wide variety of events. From high school graduations to political rallies, fundraisers, and plenty of concerts, the Jiffy Lube Live amphitheater has seen it all.

Since its opening, the venue has featured such artists as Depeche Mode, Jimmy Buffett, Linkin Park, and Nicki Minaj. The venue also hosts a few major festivals, including Ozzfest, Farm Aid, and Mayhem Festival in the past.

The original venue was developed by Cellar Door Productions, a local concert promoter, and was planned in part to alleviate complaints from the surrounding community about concerts at nearby RFK Stadium. The pavilion also beat out plans by Walt Disney corporation to put in a "Disney's America" theme park around the same location. It was renamed in 2010 as the result of a business agreement between Live Nation and Jiffy Lube.

What are the best places to sit at Jiffy Lube Live?

The Jiffy Lube Live amphitheater consists of 10,000 reserved seats and 15,000 lawn spaces. The seats that are often considered to have the best view of the stage are in sections 1 and 3, but can be pricey. The center stage section comes in a close second. Further back, amphitheater seats in any section give you a solid view of the show and a comfortable space. If you're someone who enjoys high energy at shows, however, sitting on the lawn can give you a bit more atmosphere than being up in the seated sections.

Jiffy Lube Live Tips and Tricks

There are a lot of high-quality food options available at this venue, so going somewhere else for dinner before a show may not be as necessary as some other places. You'll save time by eating right there, maybe at Guy Fieri's Burger Joint or one of the rotating food trucks that make the Jiffy Lube Live experience a little more spontaneous than most.
