“Global Dance Festival is always one of our strongest single-day events. It’s reflective in the stacked level of talent we present each year- our fans just always have to be at this one.” -Relentless Beats founder Thomas Turner

Relentless Beats, the team behind Global Dance Festival Arizona, Goldrush Music Festival, Trapfest AZ, & many other amazing festivals, has grown GDF AZ into a single day festival that’s a force to be reckoned with. They’re known for their hard hitting and well-rounded lineups and spectacular production. Be prepared for the delivery of some of their best work yet.

Coming from humble beginnings in Chicago Illinois, Flosstradamus is a god amongst men in the trap world. With heavy hitting tracks like TTU (Too Turnt Up), Mosh Pit, and Soundclash Flosstradamus created a name for itself as a duo. Now solo, Curt Cameruci aka Autobot has taken on the Flosstradamus moniker alone to bring even more fire with new pieces like How You Gon’ Do That and Back Again. This is one set that you definitely don’t want to miss out on!

Los Angeles based DJ and producer SNBRN always brings the heat. With his love of dance music blossoming at the young age of 12, by 2008 SNBRN had begun producing his own unique brand of EDM. Having produced singles like Show Me and Raindrops, his signature style of “sunset house” never fails to leave the listener awestruck. Expect this amazing young artist to set the festival ablaze when he takes the stage.

Hailing from Athens Greece and now calling Denver Colorado home, Ecotek’s beautifully melodic electronica will take you to another planet. With support from some of the biggest DJs in dance music and releases on some of the genres top labels, he’s definitely carved a name for himself. He’s even shared the stage with some of the biggest names in dance music like Tiesto, Deadmau5, Axwell, and many others. This set will most certainly be one you wont forget!

Also returning this year is the Global Dance “15 Minutes Of Fame” competition to the Monarch Theater on August 12th for its fourth incarnation. This competition gives a young up-and-coming DJ a shot at an opening spot at a Global Dance event in the fall. Having given some amazing talent a shot at opening for some of the biggest acts in the world in the past, you definitely don’t want to miss this event.
