The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences

The Dream Becomes A Reality

Construction crews are busily working to place the finishing touches and complete The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences, scheduled to open in late fall of 2020. The venue is privately supported, and fundraising efforts are ongoing to support future construction projects and arts education initiatives for youth.  

The Buddy Holly Hall is a unique world-class venue. The impressive campus features two theaters, multi-purpose event spaces, a full-service restaurant and a ballet academy all under one roof. Built as a labor of love by the community for the community, the 220,000 square foot building was designed by internationally renowned Diamond Schmitt Architects, is owned and operated by the Lubbock Entertainment and Performing Arts Association (LEPAA) and managed by ASM Global.  

Both the Helen DeVitt Jones Theater and the Crickets Theater have the highest rated acoustic value of NC15, offering renowned and aspiring artists the opportunity to perform in a state-of-the-art venue. Concert and shows touring across the country are now planning a stop in Lubbock, while businesses and groups are reserving the Grand Halls and other spaces for conferences, weddings and events.  

The Buddy Holly Hall includes a full-service restaurant, Rave On, opening in late fall. United Supermarkets will offer a unique dining experience with a menu of upscale-casual American cuisine for guests. Rave On will be open for lunch and dinner, Tuesdays through Saturdays and on performance days, and will include an after-theater lounge. As the exclusive food and beverage partner for the venue, The United Family’s Rave On will cater corporate, weddings and events. For inquires and scheduling, call (806) 796-7901.
