In May 2016, Irving will be welcoming a new addition to the Metroplex music scene. Not a new artist, but a brand new music pavillion and entertainment complex called The Music Factory.

The complex was recently announced at House of Blues Dallas by Co-President of North American Concerts, Live Nation’s Bob Roux. The new music venue will convert from a 4,000-seat indoor theater in the colder months to an open air pavilion holding 8,000 guests in the summer concert season.

Not only will The Music Factory provide a new music experience to the metropolitan area, but it will house dining options, shops, a movie theater, bowling alley and other types of entertainment options.

This venue will be owned and operated by Live Nation and will host exclusively Live Nation concerts and entertainment.

“We are exceedingly proud to be able to deliver to the DFW Metroplex this state of the art venue,” Senior Vice President of Live Nation Dallas Danny Eaton told press at the House of Blues announcemnet. “It will be the newest venue of its size dedicated solely to live music, entertainment and special events that has been constructed in the area over the last decade.”

The venue will be serviced by both DART and Las Colinas Area Personal Transit System. For those who do not wish to take public transportation, there will be 4,200 parking spaces available onsite as well as more than 15 valet stations around the development.

Construction of the venue is scheduled to be completed by May 2016, and open for the 2016 summer concert season.
