About

Meadow Brook Amphitheatre (originally the Meadow Brook Music Festival) is an outdoor pavilion music venue locaated in Rochester Hills, Michigan on the campus of Oakland University. It opened in 1964 on property originally owned by automotive industry pioneer John F. Dodge and donated by his widow Matilda Dodge Wilson.

In its first four seasons, Meadow Brook was the exclusive summer residence of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra until the festival’s schedule was broadened in 1968 to include ballet. By the early 1970s, rock and pop concerts were added to the venue’s summer lineup.

Meadow Brook Amphitheatre is operated by 313 Presents a joint venture between Olympia Entertainment—a division of Ilitch Holdings, and Palace Sports and Entertainment.
