The Hollywood Bowl isn't just one of the best concert venues in America—for many LA families a visit to the Hollywood Bowl means summer has arrived. It means picnics, cozy blankets, binoculars, fireworks, sing-a-longs, music, movies, stars on the stage, and stars in the sky.

This summer all your favorites are here: fireworks with a duo of comedy legends on the 4th of July, the annual Sound of Music sing-a-long, and live-to-screen concert performances of favorite movies. In 2022 the Hollywood Bowl schedule includes two evenings featuring the incomparable Diana Ross and closes out with 80's megaband Duran Duran. So peruse our list of the family-friendly shows that we can't wait for and get ready for a very musical summer.
