The Best Things To Do in Dallas This Weekend — Harry Styles, Leon Bridges, and Pitbull

Plus, Great Art and Beer Festivals

BY // 09.07.21

Concert season is officially in back in full swing this weekend. From Harry Styles to Leon Bridges, there are several big name acts you can still get tickets for. Two favorite local festivals (for both beer and art) are also returning after 2020 cancellations. These are the best things to do in Dallas this weekend.

Harry Styles

British singer Harry Styles (formerly of One Direction) is headed back to the American Airlines Center this Saturday at 8 pm on his Love On tour. The 27 year old is bound to play recent hits from his 2019 album Fine Line like “Watermelon Sugar” and “Falling.” Special guest Jenny Lewis will perform as well. Tickets are sold out, but you can still find some on re-sale sites like StubHub. (*You must provide a negative Covid-19 test or proof of vaccination to attend.)


Leon Bridges Dallas Weekend
Leon Bridges is performing at South Side Ballroom this Saturday.

Leon Bridges

After a change in location from the new HiFi venue (due to construction delays) to South Side Ballroom, Fort Worth-native Leon Bridges will bring his Gold-Diggers Sound Tour to The Cedars on Saturday night. The bigger venue actually allowed more tickets to become available. Fellow Texan Abraham Alexander will open for Bridges. (*You must provide a negative Covid-19 test or proof of vaccination to attend.)


Dayglow Dallas Weekend
Dayglow will perform at House of Blues this weekend in Dallas.


Another Texas-native, Dayglow (aka Sloan Christian Struble) hails from Aledo, Texas. The 22 year old released his first album under the name KINDRED in 2016 and then founded his solo indie pop project in 2017. Songs from albums Fuzzybrain and Harmony House quickly gained popular as top indie songs of today—you might recognize “Can I Call You Tonight?” and “Close To You.” Arlie and Hovvdy will open for Dayglow at 8 pm. Tickets are available here.
