The team behind GLOW, D.C.’s longest-running EDM promotions company, opened Echostage in September of 2012 to accommodate both their growing crowds and the increasing tech requirements of the acts they booked.
Built as a hybrid between a nightclub and a concert venue, Echostage is not open on a fixed weekly schedule, but instead is anchored around GLOW’s lineup, which has included Disclosure, Armin Van Buuren, Skrillex, Twenty One Pilots, Morissey, Above & Beyond, Hardwell and more.
See? Multi-purpose and multi-faceted to the max. At its core though, Echostage is built to dazzle on EDM nights. In a warehouse space reminiscent of dance music’s roots, there are no interruptions for the audience’s sight lines (or ears, for that matter) as they’re pummelled with everything from a D&B V-Series audio system to a massive 14 x 40 foot LED screen.
Over the past year, they’ve upped the ante even more, adding additional lasers, intelligent lighting and even more LED panels around the venue, meaning patrons are blasted with pretty lights, confetti or cryo no matter where they stand in the club. Hit us with those laser beams!
