As Spring slowly but surely accelerates into Summer, residents of Colorado can begin to look forward to perhaps the best season of the year: Red Rocks Season. The legendary amphitheater plays host to a myriad of shows in the warmer months, with a good amount of them residing in the electronic spectrum of music. The flagship event of the season is without a doubt the three day Global Dance Festival; an event that has graced the Rocky Mountains for eleven years, and now returns for a twelve with a stellar lineup. Leading the charge is Zedd, a man who needs no introduction, along with Adventure Club, Destroid, Carnage, Showtwek, Bro Safari, Wolfgang Gartners, and Etc!Etc! And there’s naturally many more names to come, as this is only the first phase announcement and we can expect more headlining names to be announced as the festival draws closer. With big names like Above & Beyond, Krewella, Dillon Francis, Arty, Baauer, Sander Van Doorn, and others having taken the stage in past years, one can be rest assured that the rest of the lineup announcements will feature some impressive names and eclectic combinations.
Global Dance Festival is a must-go for any an all electronic music fans in Colorado. Red Rocks is stunning in its beauty, and is perhaps the most breathtaking backdrop to a music festival in the entire country -few venues, if any, can match it. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, April 09, at noon mountain time, and you can grab them here. Also, take a peak at this GDF Sunday after movie from last year’s event if you’re curious as to what you can expect from the premier Red Rocks event.
