Earlier this week, Global Dance Festival just dropped the lineup to their annual festival and it’s MASSSIVE. Taking place July 19 & 20th, at Bronco Stadium in Denver, CO, this will be the 17th anniversary of Global Dance Festival.
Whether you’re headbanging to Herobust, groovin to Chris Lake, or gettin all the feels with Kaskade, there’s truly something for everybody with this diversified lineup!
There’s some massive headliners on this lineup including Diplo, BTSM, and Galantis (just to name a few!) And can we talk about that Excision B2B Illenium set?! Aside from Lost Lands, this is the only other b2b set scheduled with Excision and Illenium (so far anyway!).
Aside from Decadence, Global Dance Festival is one of Denver’s only actual festivals, as opposed to shows (don’t get me wrong - we are in NO way short of awesome shows in this beautiful state). But unlike shows at Red Rocks, this event will have multiple stages and carnival rides, giving it more of a festival feel.
Although this event originally was hosted at Red Rocks, the location changed to Bronco Stadium a few years ago. In my opinion, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Here’s why: although Red Rocks is an iconic location, the logistics of getting to Bronco Stadium are much easier. You can take the light rail (public transportation) straight downtown and it’s just a short walk to the station. Additionally, getting an Uber to downtown is likely to be cheaper (depending on where you live/are staying) than Red Rocks. Plus, there are several dope events already happening at Red Rocks this year, so the diversity of this events location doesn’t bother me. Because the event is on flat ground, there’s a lot more freedom with the set up of the festival - including the FIVE stages and carnival rides!
In previous years, some sweet pre & after parties were also included as part of #GlobalWeek, so keep your eyes peeled for announcements regarding 2019.
I’ve had my eye on this festival for the past few years, but unfortunately never had the chance to attend. However, after experiencing Decadence a few different times, I’m excited to see what Global Dance Events will bring to this festival in terms of production and performers (because both were freakin' awesome at Decadence)!
Having recently moved to Denver this past winter, it’s safe to say that I am more than excited to check out this festival right in my own backyard!
