AEG Facilities is to operate new 6,000-seat music and entertainment venue in San Juan, Puerto Rico, set to open in early 2019.

Located next to the Puerto Rico Convention Center (pictured), operated by AEG since July, the venue will be part of the District Live! tourist region, which will also include cinemas, a luxury hotel, radio and TV studios, a 500-capacity club and a number of outdoor stages.

“This new venue for live entertainment is the perfect anchor for what we believe will be the region’s most vibrant and popular setting for events, conventions and performances of all types, says AEG Facilities’ president, Bob Newman.

“District Live! will instantly become one of the area’s most visited destinations for both residents and tourists alike”

“Situated just steps from one of the most picturesque waterfronts, as well as a thriving convention centre and nearby urban core, District Live! will instantly become one of the area’s most visited destinations for both residents and tourists alike.”

“For a world-class project such as this, we needed an alliance with a world class player such as AEG,” adds Federic Stubbe Jnr, the president of Prisa Group, one of the companies behind District Live!. “District Live! will be an innovative entertainment centre with world-class leisure activities that will capture the energy, joy and gusto of the Puerto Rican people.”
