Tiësto to Open New Dallas Venue Located in Old Grain Silo

Independent promoter Donnie Estopinal and Dallas entrepreneur Patrick Tetrick are opening a new venue in Dallas next month in the city’s celebrated Design District.

SILO Dallas will open with back-to-back performances by Tiësto Sept. 19 and 20 following three years of planning and development of the concrete landmark. First built in 1959 as a grain storage facility for Johnson Grain Company, the building played a crucial role in feeding Texans and supplying General Foods’ Cereal Division.

The 30,000 sq.-ft. modular custom space with 40-foot high ceilings can accommodate up to 3,145 guests and will be powered by an over 100,000-watt D&B sound system, a new HVAC system and a huge 40-foot by 30-foot stage. Acoustic design for SILO Dallas is by Owens, which designed the Winspear Opera House.

“We have a fan community who is hungry for live entertainment all of the time,” said Estopinal, founder of Disco Donnie Presents, which promotes festivals in Texas, Florida and throughout the Southeast. “Even with the success of major festivals like Lights All Night, Shaq’s Bass All-Stars Festival, Ubbi Dubbi, and So What?!, we haven’t had a venue in Dallas that we can control and can call home. Silo solves that.”

Estopinal is known for successful events at venues like the Texas State Fair and Dallas Convention Center. He plans to continue this tradition with SILO Dallas, projecting millions in economic impact and numerous job opportunities within its first year.

“We found the only building in Dallas that had no parking lot, no roof, no electrical, no plumbing, no HVAC – and it’s kind of on Holy Ground,” Tetrick said. “The community’s response to our vision has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to making SILO Dallas a key player in the city’s cultural and economic landscape.”

The venue will host a number of high-profile acts in its first month, including superstar DJs Sasha & John Digweed on Sept. 28, Above & Beyond’s premier record label Anjunabeats showcase on Oct. 10 and James Hype on Nov. 1.
