3 Reasons Why This Year’s Global Dance Festival Already Has Us All Swooning
The minds behind Colorado’s Global Dance never cease to impress. Between Decadence, Skylab and many others, they put on the biggest EDM events in the Rocky Mountain area. Ask any Colorado raver, and they’re likely to tell you that Global Dance’s infamous Global Dance Festival is one of the highlights of their year. Though always amazing, this year’s Global Dance Festival seems to be panning out to be especially worthwhile. Taking place this year on July 21st and 22nd, this festival has a way of making every summer quite a bit hotter. Keep reading to hear why #GDF17 is bound to be one for the books.
The Lineup. This has to be the best part of Global Dance Festival! It always manages to draw in big names, while still pulling from a wide variety of genres beneath the EDM umbrella. This first phase of artists, released just this Wednesday, has everyone ecstatic to say the least. From Porter Robinson to Hardwell to Excision b2b Datsik, there is certainly something for everyone in this lineup. And the best part? There are still many more artists to be announced!
The Location. Global Dance Fest vets have already noticed the most significant change in this year’s festival – the venue. While in the past the festival has been held at Red Rocks, this year it’ll be moving to Sports Authority Field at Mile High. This venue change will make a drastic change in the environment of the festival, seeing as it will allow many more people to attend. What some might not realize is that this will also benefit the sound quality of the festival. This venue is more suited for a large festival, as it has more room and less sound restrictions. It is also much closer to downtown Denver, so many festival-goers will have any easier time getting to their hotels afterwards.
The Length. Though the festival went from three days to two, there is an underlying benefit to this change. Now that the festival is being held at a new location, it is able to run several hours later every night. This will compact the same amount of fun into a shorter period of time, therefore allowing out-of-towners a chance to see the whole festival before having the jet off to be back in time for any Monday obligations. And, it will do so without having to cut out much festival time! Everyone wins.
If you’re a Colorado native, the stars have already aligned for Global Dance Fest to be one of the best parts of your summer. If you’re not a local, consider making travels plans to head on out to Denver for this legendary event. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 26th, and are bound to go quick!
