For two days this spring, Project Glow will light up the night at RFK Festival Grounds with some of the biggest names in electronic dance music, including Diplo, Martin Garrix, GRiZ, and Krewella. The inaugural event stems from a partnership between Insomniac Events and Club Glow. The two promoters have already collaborated on several shows at Soundcheck and Echostage, but Insomniac founder/CEO Pasquale Rotella says this will be their largest event yet, also featuring live art installations. Club Glow is the longest-running electronic music event promotions company on the East Coast while Insomniac hosts some of the largest festivals in North America, such as Electric Daisy Carnival and Beyond Wonderland. “Every Insomniac festival is an opportunity to bring special and unique experiences to the rave community,” Rotella tells City Paper. “With this being our first festival in Washington, D.C., we hope that this will be the first of many experiences for Washingtonians to enjoy.” He wouldn’t provide additional details on other events expected to be announced “soon.” Rotella says masks will not be required, but all attendees must be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test. April 30-May 1 at RFK Stadium, 2400 E. Capitol St. NE. $125–$245.
