ATTENTION: Gates for Hozier on Friday, May 17 will now open at 6:00 PM with the show scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.


The Chrysalis at Merriweather Park is both a stunning work of futuristic urban art, as well as a 5,000-square foot concert stage, soaring 60 feet into the air. Located among the trees adjacent to Merriweather Post Pavilion, the brightly colored open-air iconic venue hosts concerts, as well as cultural events for the entire community. It’s as big as Carnegie Hall and is adorned by a bright green asymmetric canopy of 7,700 aluminum tiles that meld to create a sculpture flowing among trees in every direction.

Simply park the way you normally would for Merriweather shows and enter the venue through the regular Merriweather gates (don’t worry – our staff will direct you to Symphony Woods). Concessions will be available in the Woods and amenities like restrooms are just a quick stroll away. While the Chrysalis provides unique shows in the tranquil beauty amongst the trees, those in attendance won’t be roughing it by any means.
