On the cusp of North Dallas, one new neighborhood has a new announcement.  The Sound, the cornerstone of Billingsley Company’s 1,000-acre master-planned development of Cypress Waters is unveiling its next phase, a 1-acre park and outdoor music venue with covered stage and amphitheater, which will host a variety of events year-round. The new space is flanked by local Dallas favorite restaurants, commercial headquarters and multifamily residential – all facing the 300-acre North Lake.


The kickoff to this new venue culminates in an outdoor live music concert, featuring Texas country musician, Pat Green on May 25, 2019.  One of the most influential modern stars in Texas’ long country-music tradition, Pat Green has left his mark on the Lonestar state and fans across the nation.  Fans will get to see him live at the first-of-its-kind show at The Sound’s new outdoor venue. Tickets went on sale to the public Monday, February 20th, and include $25 general admission and $50 VIP tickets [Update: VIP tickets are sold out!] and can be found on Eventbrite.


As a prelude to the Grand Opening event, The Sound has planned several lead-up events in May, including popular tribute acts on Thursdays, local pop-up markets with partner The Boho Market on Fridays, and a variety of cultural, music and movie nights dubbed “Sunsets at The Sound” on Saturdays.  Tickets to the tribute band live music nights are $15 each, The Boho Market is free admission and kid- and pet-friendly and Sunsets at The Sound are free.

Announcements for the local retailers that have joined The Sound were made in 2018 and include Rodeo Goat, Flying Fish, Eno’s Pizza Tavern, Ascension Coffee, Landon Winery, and Flying Saucer. Two of the restaurants – Flying Fish and Rodeo Goat – are built on piers over the water with large wrap-around patios to maximize the views.


The remaining retailers also have large amounts of patio seating and face towards the amphitheater and Sound Stage with views of the water.  Nearby amenities include a kids’ splash pad, public dog park and large-scale public art, sourced by Lucy specifically for this space.


Ascension Coffee founder, Russell Hayward will be one of the first to open at The Sound in April. “I think people should be excited about The Sound because for the first time anywhere in Dallas they can go, take their kids, sit out on the water or in the park and there’s entertainment. When people see it, that’s when they’ll go ‘WOW’. It’s just an incredible addition to our community.” Sumner Billingsley, Vice President of Retail and Multifamily Development couldn’t agree more. “We are thrilled to see this vision come to life. We’ve been developing Cypress Waters for the better part of 6 years now, so to have finally arrived at The Sound, the true heart and soul of the project, is extremely exciting. This new entertainment and restaurant destination of The Sound will be a true game-changer for the entire area. We expect to not only attract folks from Coppell, Irving and Las Colinas but from all across DFW for our concert series, restaurants and trails.”


The Sound is located within the Cypress Waters masterplan development just north of the intersection of Beltline and Interstate 635 in North Dallas, on the borders of Coppell and Irving. The first two phases of the lakeside multifamily development, The Neighborhoods at The Sound are currently home to over 200 residents and are continuing to lease luxury rental apartments and townhomes. The entertainment and retail venues have added to the appeal for a live-work-play environment with walkability not traditionally associated with north Dallas neighborhoods.

Additional details will be announced in the coming months, including opening performances for the grand opening, cultural performances moving to the area, and a full schedule of events at The Sound.
