“Global Dance Festival has been a cornerstone of dance music in Colorado for over a decade.” Global Dance are the masterminds behind some of Colorado’s greatest music festivals, including the legendary Global Dance Festival. 2017 marks the 15th anniversary of this festival with a stunning lineup and a venue previously untouched by Global Dance Festival territory.

Taking place on July 21st and 22nd, #GDF17 is set to be a ground breaker!
“The beloved festival says goodbye to its home of fourteen years, Red Rocks Amphitheater and moves to Sports Authority Field at Mile High.”
Global, Past and Present
Global Dance Festival has been a staple event for the Rocky Mountains for fifteen years. It has consistently offered energetic and uplifting vibes to those who attend and has grown massively year after year. Global boasts lineups that always impress and a venue that is as beautiful as the show itself. Global Dance Festival has taken place at the infamous Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado up until this year. Red Rocks Amphitheater was placed under new noise ordinances in 2015, causing a stir. Although patrons have marveled at and will miss this beloved Rocky Mountain gem, 2017 is time for an exciting new direction. Global tells of much to offer with this new venue:
“For two electrifying days, attendees are welcomed to embark upon a new adventure and explore a massive playground as the grounds at Sports Authority Field at Mile High are transformed into a true, all-encompassing festival experience that includes multiple massive stages, larger production than ever before, food truck village, a carnival atmosphere complete with multiple rides and carnival games, silent disco, a huge decked out VIP village with private bars, bathrooms and lounge seating areas, shade zones, lockers, stage-side cabanas, an art park with massive installations and room for more attendees than ever.”
