Announcing Global Dance Festival 2014

Posted: 07.18.2014

The pinnacle of dance music in Colorado is without a doubt, Global Dance Festival.  For the past 11 years, thousands of beautiful people have made the trek to Red Rocks, one of the most inspiring venues in the world to celebrate life through dance. Global Dance Festival takes the natural beauty of Red Rocks and enhances it with cutting edge production, lasers, LED's, costumed performers and stars of the dance music world. The result is three nights of dance nirvana.

This is the one. The show we spend all year thinking about. Colorado's flagship dance music festival and the premier summer music festival in the Rocky Mountain region!

A mainstay of Colorado's passion for dance music, Global Dance Festival has grown to become the premier summer music festival in the Rocky Mountain region! As we head into the 12th year we invite you back to create new friendships, celebrate existing ones, and foster a community of acceptance at our summer home: Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Start planning your summer adventure now: Global Dance Festival returns on July 18th, 19th & 20th! Join us as we continue to exceed the limits of dance music in Colorado!

"When Kostas and I began the Global Dance Festival journey, we really just wanted to bring some of the world's best EDM artists to our home town. We both had a passion for this music, so the goal was to share it with as many fans as possible," says Global Dance CEO Ha Hau, "We can't believe that this is the 12th year and we are really excited to show you what we have in store."

Lineup and ticket announcements will start soon.  Make sure you are connected with GDF so you are among  the first to hear.

Skylab XX

Posted: 07.01.2014

Two decades ago, an idea was conceived to propel an audience into space through dance music. This mission became known as Skylab. With the initial space exploration a smashing success, future missions were planned into the reaches of space for each consecutive year. Guided by a new set of mission commanders providing interstellar beats as our rocket fuel, we took to the stars to explore strange new worlds and boldly go where no one had gone before.

Few dance music gatherings across the galaxy have captivated an audience for as long as Skylab has. From its humble beginnings at the dawn of this culture, to the out-of-this-world missions it has become, who could have known we would still be traveling though space together 20 years later?

On the 20th day of September, celebrate 20 years of Skylab.

Mission commanders, boarding passes and launch location will be announced soon.

Skylab XX
September 20th, 2013
This event is 16+

Global Dance Festival Phase 2 Lineup

Posted: 05.16.2014

Our aim every year at Global Dance Festival is not just to showcase what acts are hot right now, but to look ahead and show the audience the next big thing. We have a lot of pride knowing that we have brought the biggest acts in the world to Colorado, and most of them came before the masses caught on. For this reason, GDF is truly a unique festival experience than the others out there, right here in the Rockies!

Discovering new artists over several days at Red Rocks has been a fan favorite over the years and this year we carry on that tradition by bringing you a mixture of today's legends and the stars of tomorrow. With great pleasure we introduce the phase 2 lineup for #GDF14!
