A number of people were stabbed during the music festival last month.
Reporting on the violence, Garda said the Phoenix Park "is not a suitable venue for large scale outdoor 'electric music' concerts of the kind which took place on 7 July, 2012".
They said the concert was the first such event to have taken place there.
The report continued: "In the recent past similar concerts were held at the Oxegen Festival, which is located in a rural location with limited access.
"This reduces the number of non-concert patrons congregating in the vicinity of the concert and the probability of potential public order incidents."
Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan has presented the report to the Republic of Ireland's Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter.
He said concerts on the Thursday and Sunday night had passed off "from a policing perspective as predicted", but that the Saturday night event had not.
"In that context the review conducted by An Garda Síochána has highlighted a number of matters that need to be addressed in future planning of large outdoor concerts of similar nature," Mr Callinan said.
"An Garda Síochána are engaged with the concert promoters and other stakeholders to ensure the implementation of the recommendations contained in the recent review, so that all patrons can enjoy and have a positive experience when attending such events."
MCD responded in a statement saying: "MCD is surprised and disappointed that the covering letter from the Garda Commissioner relating to the unpublished report into events at the 7th July concert in the Phoenix Park was issued without any notice or consultation with MCD.
"This was despite agreement with the Garda Commissioner's office on 10th July 2012 that further review meetings would be held between both parties prior to the publication of any Garda or MCD reviews."
The promoter said it wants to see a full independent public inquiry be held into the incident.
