Although people often think the name Hollywood Bowl refers to the dome-shaped band shell on the stage, it is actually a reference to the natural bowl-shaped area surrounded by the Hollywood Hills formerly known as the Daisy Dell. Today the name Hollywood Bowl is known for the amazing entertainment performed there under the stars. Summers at the Bowl are sizzling hot with arts from all genres.
