Zei Club, Insomnia, Dream, Fur, Ibiza, Ultrabar. Washington DC Nightclubs that have one thing in common….GLOW. A party that started back in 1999 out of a conversation in ZEI alley (alley located on 14th and I streets, next to Lima Lounge). GLOW founder Antonis Karagounis says “I had just read an article named Northern Lights on an EDM magazine. It was talking about the glowsticking culture and how it’s associated with Trance music, and I thought, if we bring Trance to DC, GLOW is a great name for the party”.
GLOW, premiered at ZEI club in October of 1999 and it was packed every single week. ZEI club had never been as packed, and it had been open for almost a decade. GLOW was not based on any DJ’s; it was based on the sound of DJ Pete Moutso. “Back then, Trance had these long breaks and the buildup to the main beats of the song” Moutso says. So we thought about utilizing the breaks for a crazy intro to the night, with balloon drops, confetti cannons, stringers etc.” The first guest DJ was George Acosta from Miami, an amazing night. Since then, GLOW has been in the forefront of EDM music by bringing future top 10 DJ’s when most people had not even heard of them. Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz and others, came to DC for the first time, and have been calling the Nation’s Capital their home ever since. Other GLOW guest DJ’s include, Paul Van Dyk, Sasha and Digweed, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Cox, Kaskade, David Guetta, Benny Benassi, Deep Dish and hundreds of others.
