The 5,500-capacity Amphitheater  venue is setup for live concerts, festivals and events in downtown Raleigh.

Opened on June 4, 2010, 

In September 2012, Red Hat and the City of Raleigh announced a five-year deal to transform downtown Raleigh's open-air concert venue into the Red Hat Amphitheater. Since announcing the relocation of its headquarters to Downtown Raleigh in April 2011, Red Hat has been a leading catalyst in Raleigh’s center city renaissance as an innovative, dining, cultural, entertainment destination. In 2011, Raleigh proudly declared itself America’s “Open Source City.”

"Red Hat is proud to collaborate with the City of Raleigh, “ said Jackie Yeaney, executive vice president of Strategy and Marketing at Red Hat. “Red Hat’s mission is to be a catalyst in our communities and we’re hoping that with this collaboration, we’ll be able to help fuel the continued growth of Downtown Raleigh.” “Raleigh is so proud that this internationally acclaimed, home-grown technological leader has further solidified its association with the Capital City,” Mayor Nancy McFarlane said of the agreement. The Raleigh City Council voted unanimously in support of the agreement at the September 4, 2012 meeting.
“This Downtown venue, that offers the very best in entertainment in a uniquely Raleigh setting, is the perfect match for this uniquely Raleigh company,” Mayor McFarlane said. “We are delighted.”
