Industry News: TopGolf Launches a New Open-Concept Venue, Mark Cuban and Live Nation Unveil the HiFi Dallas, Details on the Fashion Los Angeles Awards, and More
ATLANTA: TopGolf is testing the waters with the launch of a new open-concept design, featuring a single-level floor plan in lieu of its traditional three levels. The new Augusta location will be unveiled during the Master's Tournament, held from April 9-12. Highlights of the new golfing and entertainment venue include 36 bays; a backyard-style outdoor space for live music, mini-golf, and lawn games; a 13-foot programmable video wall; patio space for private groups; and more.
DALLAS/FORT WORTH: Dallas Design District is getting its first music venue, thanks to a tag-team effort between Live Nation and Mark Cuban. The venue, named the HiFi Dallas, will open in May and focus on more intimate entertainment events—hence the capacity of only 1,000 people. Not just a music hub, the new space will accommodate events with a flexible floor plan that allows the lobby, outside area, and upstairs to be partitioned.
LOS ANGELES: The Daily Front Row's sixth annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards will take place on March 29 at the Beverly Wilshire. Sponsors will include Maybelline New York, Moroccanoil, Sunglass Hut, Afterpay, and FIJI Water.
