Popular headliners set the stage for this year’s Project Glow Festival, which takes place at Subaru Park in Chester.  

Philadelphia’s first-ever Project Glow Festival heads to the Subaru Park in Chester this October 1-2 with some unforgettable artists performing. First debuting at the RFK Festival Grounds in Washington, D.C. back in April, Project Glow has expanded its success to Philadelphia for an iconic weekend.

Pete Kalamoutsos, President and CEO of Club Glow, shares his excitement about the second location, saying, “We’ve had our eye on Philly for a while so this felt like the right place for us. The views of the water are unmatched and having the Commodore Barry Bridge as our backdrop is going to be breathtaking. We’re so excited for everyone to see it!” 

Home to Philadelphia Union’s major league soccer team, the Subaru Park will host three stages, the Eternal Stage, Pulse Stage and Boombox Art Car, with iconic headliners like Martin Garrix, ILLENIUM and Alison Wonderland.

Along with a stacked lineup, Project Glow also announces its partnership with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to help fund resources to pediatric patients in Music Therapy and Dance & Movement Therapy programs. A portion of every ticket sale will be donated to CHOP. “Beyond the monetary donation, Project Glow artists and team members will collaborate to curate specialty experiences and entertainment for pediatric patients at CHOP,” explains Kalamoutsos.  

Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac’s Founder and CEO, and Pete Kalamoutsos, President and CEO of Club Glow, teamed up to present the festival. Insomniac is the world’s leading live events producer, responsible for some of the largest music festivals in the world. In 2020, Insomniac acquired Club Glow and its Washington, D.C. venues Echostage and Soundcheck.

The Philadelphia region’s music scene has expanded greatly recently, offering a wide variety of different genres. “This is the inaugural event in Philly so we’re super excited to see how the community responds to our festival. It’s a new, exciting challenge for us to grow outside of the DMV (D.C., M.D., V.A.) area and expand our footprint along the East Coast. The lineup is pretty unique, and it touches on every facet of dance music,” says Kalamoutsos. 

The team plans to host Project Glow annually in Philadelphia, with more opportunities in the works. Check out the Project Glow website for updates leading up to the festival. Find the full lineup here.
