Echostage has been voted the world’s No. 1 club via DJ Mag‘s Top 100 Clubs poll for 2021.
Location: Washington, D.C., USA
It’s been a trying year for clubs and venues everywhere, but prior to the pandemic Echostage hosted a number of leading acts in dance music including REZZ, Armin van Buuren, Eric Prydz, Black Coffee and Claude VonStroke. Coming up, the venue is set to host Cash Cash, Kayzo & ATLiens, Camelphat and more.
Located in Washington D.C., the venue exhibits cutting-edge production and top-tier talent with outstanding audio/visual experiences for its audience, which Echostage refers to as #EchoFam.
Taking up over 30,000 square feet, Echostage has all the trappings you’d expect of a No.1 venue. The soundsystem is a d&b audiotechnik V-Series with D80 amplifiers, pumping out 48,000 watts of superior sound, while the senses are further stimulated by dazzling lasers, confetti cannons and cryo-jets. The capacious, warehouse-inspired space is flanked by 60-foot bars, while a VIP mezzanine perches above the dancefloor, kitted out with a plethora of bottle-service tables.DJ Mag shares the specs and accommodations
