Since opening its doors in 2011, California State University, Northridge’s Valley Performing Arts Center has hosted some of the top acts in the world. According to a poll taken by Time Out Los Angeles, the whole city has noticed, naming the VPAC as one of its the best venues.

Ever since the 1,700-seat hall opened with a high-profile performance by the Moscow Symphony, the VPAC has drawn top-notch talent—from the Buena Vista Social Club (which opened the 2013-14 season) and Willie Nelson to the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and The Acting Company’s performance of “Of Mice and Men.”

Other venues that made the list include the world-renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall, Geffen Playhouse and Mark Taper Forum.
