Poll 2024: Soundcheck

Location: Washington, DC, USA 

Capacity: 500 

The younger sibling of superclub Echostage, Soundcheck is Club GLOW’s intimate, underground experience. Located in the downtown area of the nation’s capital, the 4,400-square-foot basement space showcases up-and-coming talent in a high-level environment, with state-of-the-art lighting and 80,000 watts of sound. Soundcheck is the pre- and post-Project GLOW Festival destination, featuring appearances from the festival’s line-up. It also hosts Insomniac’s Bassrush, a weekly night of bass music. Soundcheck does not discriminate between styles and genres, featuring everything from house to hip-hop and Latin, and offering table service as well as a banging dancefloor. Among the talent gracing the Soundcheck stage this past year are names like Gorgon City, Mau P, Hamdi, Sicaria, Max Styler, Tini Gessler, Chris Avantgarde, PAWSA, LP Giobbi, Eli Brown and testpilot. Additionally, Soundcheck counts Markus Schulz, Infected Mushroom, Ferry Corsten, Funtcase, DJ Soda, Green Velvet, and more among its resident DJs.
