Global Dance Festival 2017 Brings Best Lineup Ever

by Chad Davis

  In just two short weeks, the most anticipated Electronic music festival in Rocky Mountains USA kicks off in Denver. Global Dance Festival holds a strong track-record for bringing some of the biggest names in the industry to the state of Colorado for a multi-day dance party. GDF 2017 brings dozens of EDM-legends, such as Excision, Porter Robinson & Zhu, to the dead-center of Mile High City for the ultimate festival experience.

Fresh Venue

Red Rocks for Global Dance FestivalWe must admit, we were a bit skeptical having first heard about the venue-change. After all, Red Rock Amphitheatre had been the long-time home to the music festival and one of the most iconic venues in the US. This year’s event will instead be held at Sports Authority Field at Mile High (aka the Broncos’ NFL Stadium) in the heart of Denver, Colorado. But don’t worry — after taking just a quick look at this year’s SUPER-CHARGED LINEUPwe’re sure you’ll agree that this year’s festival will be one for the history books!

Wow. This lineup speaks volumes to the progression of the EDM genre. The diverse set list is descriptive of how far Electronic music has come in the past few decades. No matter what type of electronic music you’re into, Global Dance Festival 2017 has everything you need. From fresh, bass-heavy remixes to iconic, lyric-infused hits — you’re not going to believe the artist list. Enough teasing — let’s get to the good stuff:
