Global Dance Festival: Where Dance Music Meets Nature

Every July, Global Dance Festival takes over the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater for a three-day tour filled with electrifying dance music. This year, thousands will enter Red Rocks from July 17-18th, making GDF one of the largest summer music festivals in the Rocky Mountain Region.

From Dubstep to Trance, this one-of-a-kind event will feature a diverse line up in the realm of premier dance music artists. This will be Global Dance Festival's 13th anniversary, and to celebrate accordingly, Global Dance and AEG Live have set the stage with their best line up yet. For the first time in eight years, the timeless TIËSTO will be returning to Red Rocks, joined by the much anticipated KASKADE, who continues to take fans to new heights with his signature euphoric house music. FLOSSTRADAMUS will be throwing down a heavy trap set, that is sure to turn Red Rocks into a raging party! For the trance crowd, ABOVE & BEYOND will surely play a unforgettable set, surrounded by the Red Rock Monoliths, under the stars.

If those four artists alone aren’t enough to convince you to buy a ticket, BENNY BENASSI will be joining the festival and DATSIK will be throwing down a filthy dubstep set. Other big names that will be making an appearance include 3LAU, DOCTOR P, GOLDFISH, GREEN VELVET, ILLENIUM, LANE 8, MAHI, MAKO, MANUFACTURED SUPERSTARS, MILO & OTIS, NEW WORLD SOUND, PEGBOARD NERDS, PEKING DUCK, ROUTE 94, SEVEN LIONS, SLANDER, TERRAVITA, TRIPPY TURTLE and VANIC. These artists and others soon to be announced will be playing across three different stages, adding to the diversity of the festival.

If you are a dance music lover, this is a festival you can’t miss. Standing among thousands of other music lovers, underneath the towering monoliths, this festival presents a truly unique experience. At the crossroads where dance music intersects with the awe inspiring beauty of nature, Global Dance Festival creates lasting memories that inspire us and keep us coming back for more!
