Alpine Valley was a trip in

Alpine Valley was a trip in itself back in the early 80"s. We made it a regular trip each summer that they played there.

This was the first show for my wife and our first one together.

Alpine

This was my favorite venue!! Camping on site. Good sound. During the 1988 run, I lost my virginity during Blackbird in my tent outside the show walls. The song echoed through the valley and into my soul. God bless Alpine.I miss you.

Now I'm remembering

Couldn't at first remember what year. But then remembered we saw Dylan on his own the first night we were there. Terrible tree drought that year. Also was one of the first people parked there, sisters from MN left for hotdogs never to be seen again. Heard people could'nt get to shows due to traffic. Parking lot like hell, no shade, no water, couldn't leave. Inside - like heaven green grass, steak on the grill. When we were exiting Theatre, everyone was mooing! Cool introduction to the midwest.

my 1st show

It's crazy to think you can trace back in time to the moment your life may changed forever. I was 17 and didn't know what to expect. When the 1st note of Iko hit and everybody started dancing and singing, i was in complete shock. It seems like a dream now. This night changed me , not that the music was any better that other nights...it was my seeing the light. I called my mom and told her i was going to stay for the next show. She was pissed off! I stayed anyway. Thank you so much Jerry and the boys

The first of many

We heard about the Grateful Dead and after hangin with Steve, an old hippie from Lansing, MI, My brother and I took off to find this Alpine Valley Music Theater. We arrived a day early but there were people starting to populate the lot, so we went in. While chillin in the back of my old pickup truck doin bongs we heard what we thought was the best Dylan Disk yet. Well ended up to be Dylan live, what stoners we were. We road out the night there and woke up the next day to the coolest colored buses and the wildest and most friendliest people on the earth, the DEAD HEADS. I found home. Thanks Jerry, Bobby and the boys for a life changing experience.

Alpine Valley:best outdoor venue in the country

I used to live about 40 miles from Alpine. The acoustics there are excellent. The 1989 shows were 5 star shows. The camping at Whitewater lake is really hip. If you ever make it that way look into camping at Whitewater lake. I was fortunate to also see The Who, The Stones, and The Jerry Garcia Band at Alpine. Every show was awesome and the sound was mind blowing! Hats off to Alpine!
