About the Epstein Family Amphitheater

The Epstein Family Amphitheater is 2,650-seat, open-air venue at the heart of UC San Diego’s campus, steps from the main campus trolley stop off the UC San Diego Blue Line. The amphitheater will showcase performing arts, featuring local and international talent, at over 300 events per year. 

Its custom-designed acoustic shell serves as part of the stage, optimizing sound for a wide variety of productions, everything from large-scale rock concerts to classical quartets and theatrical dance. Projection equipment will provide patrons with an intimate view of performances, and allow for the screening of films and live events.

In addition to providing a venue for global talent, it will also be used for UC San Diego theater, dance, visual arts and music programs – providing students a space to perform and gain hands-on experience in the live events industry.

The Epstein Family Amphitheater provides a state-of-the-art performance venue in the heart of UC San Diego with convenient access to restaurants, bars and retail just off the trolley’s UC San Diego Blue Line. With programming that celebrates the diversity of people, cultures and industries within our binational region, the Epstein Family Amphitheater is designed to invite all of San Diego County, Tijuana and beyond to our campus community.
