(Washington, DC) – Effective September 3, 2012, an investment group headed by Panorama Productions and Club Glow will take over operations of the DC Star nightclub/concert venue. The space is located on Queens Chapel Road near the corner of New York Ave and Bladensburg Road NE.
It will undergo a multi-phase construction schedule over the course of several months. Cosmetic, technical and structural changes will transform it to a state of the art concert venue: Echostage.
Through music, design and technology, ownership will provide fans with a unique audio/visual concert experience.
Echostage will have the ability to host any large-scale, indoor concert production. Panorama’s ‘Club Glow’ Saturday events will move to the new location.
“We’re excited to finally bring a concert venue of this size to DC. To the fans – please bear with us. We’re modifying the space as fast as possible. Experience the amazing transformation from a nightclub to the largest concert venue in the Nation’s Capital.”
– Antonis Karagounis, Panorama Productions/Glow
“Dance music has grown to the point where we can do massive line-ups on a regular basis. This venue has been the missing link. Artists, agents, management, major promoters; everyone we’ve talked to is excited to give fans the epic shows and concerts they deserve.”
– Pete Kalamoutsos, Panorama Productions/Glow
“Washington, DC has not had a large-scale, dedicated concert venue in many years. As a lifelong resident, I’m proud that Panorama Productions is responsible for bringing a venue of this size to the DC-area.”
– Jimmy Marmaras, Panorama Productions/Glow
The first concert at Echostage will be a Glow event featuring Dutch DJs Sander van Doorn and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano on September 22.
Future dates will include dance, rock and any production requiring a large-scale, dedicated concert venue.
A complete listing of Glow Fall events will be announced on Friday August 24, 2012.
