There are many reasons to get to the Bowl as soon as possible. Less traffic.
Better picnic areas available. My favorite however is just setting up dinner and watching the sun set.

Parking at the Bowl is very limited.
Most of what is available is stacked.
This makes leaving after the concert very difficult. Take advantage of the the Park & Ride and Bowl Shuttle service. More than a third of the concert goers use the transportation system.
