Gexa Energy Pavilion - Dallas, TX (6 Upcoming Events)

Starplex Pavilion, recently known as the Gexa Energy Pavilion, is a venue located in Dallas’ famous Fair Park. Known to be the longest-running outdoor venue in Dallas, it’s used exclusively for live music performances. It has hosted several performances from well-known artists such as Santana, Coldplay, Elton John, Tina Turner, and many others.

The pavilion started out as Coca-Cola Starplex Amphitheater, which opened its doors to the public in 1988. Over the years, naming rights were sold to different companies such as Smirnoff Vodka and Superpages.com. The most recent change of name happened January 2017 as it was changed back to Starplex Pavilion. 7,500 patrons can be accommodated under the canopy while 12,500 patrons can enjoy the view from the green lawn.
