Venue Guide: White River Amphitheatre – Auburn, WA

White River Amphitheatre History

In 2003, the White River Amphitheatre opened its sprawling 98-acre space. Built by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, it’s located on the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation in Auburn, Washington, and gives its seated attendees and lawn dwellers a breathtaking view of Mount Rainier. Adorned with an acoustically treated metal roof covering 8,500 fixed seats, it is the first covered amphitheater in the area. Thanks to the theater’s two 30-by-40-foot screens that border the stage, concertgoers won’t have trouble seeing the spate of performers who hit the stage.

White River Amphitheatre Performers

Local rock band Heart christened the White River Amphitheatre on June 14, 2003. Since, the stage has been no stranger to legendary acts like Sting, Jimmy Buffett, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, and Ozzy Osbourne, whose Ozzfest was hosted at the state-of-the-art venue.
