Ready to hit the city in style? DC Echosting was named the world’s best nightlife spot in a recent ranking.

The Northeast DC concert and club space, which opened in 2012, is the first venue in the United States to receive the # 1 spot in electronic music magazine DJ Mag’s list voted by readers of the 100 best nightclubs in the world. Since its reopening after the pandemic, Echostage has welcomed artists such as Tiesto and David Guetta for sets.

In honor of being ranked number one, the venue will host a free celebratory event on September 24, along with freebies of merchandise and 50% off all tickets to the September shows.

The honor is particularly significant given the immense challenges for Echostage and the live music industry posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Pete Kalamoutsos, president and CEO of Glow, the on-site club.

“We are very proud of what we have built and how Echostage has gone through one of the toughest years of nightlife to become the best place in the world,” Kalamoutsos said in a press release. “In DC, Glow had built 20-year-old roots, and it was those roots, along with our loyal customers and hardworking staff, that helped us create the best place in the world.

Upcoming events at Echostage include performances by EDM Cash Cash and Krewella groups. The venue requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative test 72 hours before your show.
