The Jones Beach Theater Seating Chart is somewhat straight forward, so most of the time what you see is what you get. However, there are a lot of different Jones Beach seating chart maps and most of them don’t include seat numbers, row numbers or even all of the sections. Oh and by the way, we have Jones Beach Theater Tickets.

TIPS FOR ANY CONCERT AT JONES BEACH THEATRE:
The Jones Beach Theater is an outdoor venue, so the sound quality of a concert can vary enormously depending on where you’re sitting. Follow our tips below and you’ll get the best seats to the Nikon Jones Beach Theatre within your budget.
Orchestra Level: Sections B,C,D,E,G, and H all have seat 1 located on the side of the section closest to the center of the venue. Section A is in the center of the venue, but follows the same rules as sections B,D,H and F. So, the best seats in the stadium would be middle seats in A (Each Row in Section A has between 16 and 26 Seats, so any seat between 8 and 12 in A will be great). In order to make sure you are as close to the center as possible, your next best bet would be to get a tickets as close to seat #1 in each of the other 8 orchestra sections. Try to avoid the higher numbers, especially in Sections C & D, because views can become extreme from these angles.
Stadium Level: The Sections in the Stadium Level follow a much more conventional pattern. When looking towards the stage, the seats on the farthest righthand side are always labeled one. Each row in the Stadium Level contains anywhere between 13 and 18 seats, so grab a seat in the 7-9 range in sections 7R, 8R, 9L, or 10L for you’re best viewing experience.
Mezzanine: The Mezzanine seats follow the same order as the Stadium Level. When looking towards the stage, the seats on the farthest righthand side are always labeled one. This means that middle numbered seats (7-15) in section 22 are probably your best bet. Don’t be discouraged by the ‘mezzanine’ label. I’ve personally sat in these sections quite a few times. The venue is on the smaller side, which means every seat in the house is solid. Not to mention, the views of Jones Beach State Park, Zach’s Bay, and Long Island in general are fantastic from up in the top tiers. Although, because this is an outdoor venue, on a windy day the sound quality can be slightly muddled from the mezzanine.
Note: Jones Beach Theatre does not serve alcohol. Unless you have tickets in the suites (sections 1-15, and located just above sections C, A,or D) you will not be allowed to consume alcohol at a concert at Jones Beach. However, parking is free and they have two enormous lots that fit more than the number of concert-goers for any one day. If you want to drink, grab a DD, pack a cooler, get there early and enjoy the summer sun. Just watch out for the cops who can be pretty strict, especially as the place packs up.
Directions: It’s a pretty easy trip from all points on Long Island, and is only about a 40 Minute trip from Manhattan by car. Take the Meadowbrook Parkway or the Wantagh Parkway south and follow the signs to Jones Beach Amphitheatre. Parking is free after 5. If you don’t have a car, you can take the Babylon line on the LIRR to Freeport from Penn Station, and take about a 10 minute cab ride to get there. It takes a little longer, but for those of you looking to tailgate, this is easily your best option.
