Stardust Events has been a staple in the Seattle music industry since 2010, having hosted shows including Nightglo II with Rusko, White Wonderland in 2017, and Andrew Rayel at Aston Manor following his amazing set that same year at Ultra Music Festival.
Stardust has sold out multiple shows at Meydenbauer Event Center but had quietly taken a pandemic sabbatical from the music industry in preparation for its next venture.
The good news is that Stardust has partnered with Sarajevo Nightclub – recently relocated to Foundation’s former space on Western Avenue – on a new dance music weekly. Jimmy Geagea, the owner of Stardust Events, is hoping to have that serve as a long-awaited re-entrance to the music community.
“Since inception, Stardust Events was all about music and providing good experiences and a safe environment for attendees. We reached our peak at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue with continuous sold-out shows, and turned out a venue that has never hosted an EDM event, into a venue that Seattle ravers cherish and have created many memories in,” Geagea told Dance Music Northwest. “Then COVID happened.”
We have all felt the wide reaches of COVID and the many questions of what the music industry will be like moving forward. One blessing is that many companies like Stardust Events have been given the opportunity to start anew, branching out into new venues with different artists. Where opportunities may not have existed previously, they are now in abundance.
Every Thursday, Stardust Events will take over Sarajevo Nightclub with Electronic Thursdays, a night completely dedicated to EDM. Stardust Events plans to bring all kinds of genres to the venue from “trance, to house, to hardstyle, to bass.” In search of a more broad club-going crowd, Stardust Events has chosen a wider range of genres to break up the monotony.
The launch of Electronic Thursdays will happen on December 2nd at Sarajevo, featuring DJ Accia, Johnny Monsoon, and Moobek. You will be able to purchase tickets here. They will follow with Coone on December 9th, and Andrew Rayel on February 24th.
Keep an eye on Stardust Events social media as they are set to announce the headliner for this first event on Monday, October 25th.
As for the new Sarajevo Nightclub itself, much has stayed the same from the days of Foundation. The familiar pillars remain in the center of the floor and the backlit wall along the VIP booth still glows.
For upgrades, additional video panels have been added to the ceiling and new convertible seating in front of the stage has been added. Sarajevo hopes to breathe new life into the Belltown space with a wider range of events and uses.
As for Geagea, he is excited to see what the future holds for Stardust Events: “We’re back, be ready for good times!”
