The revered venue has been floating around the highest spot for years, landing at number two in 2019 and number three in 2020. Now it is has finally taken the gold.
To celebrate this honor, Echostage has promised a “week full of surprises” that includes a free show on Friday, September 24. No lineup has been shared at this point other than a Grammy-nominated special guest. Attendees of this event will enjoy an open-bar for one hour as well. Stay tuned to the Echostage socials for RSVP and other information for the free show and the rest of the surprises.
“We are so proud of what we have built, and how Echostage has weathered one of the most difficult years in nightlife to emerge as the world’s best venue. In DC, Glow had built roots that are 20 years old, and it’s these roots, along with our loyal patrons and our hardworking staff, that have helped us create the best venue in the world,” says Glow President and CEO Pete Kalamoutsos. Glow is the subsidiary of Insomniac that owns Echostage.
