The Relentless Rangers made their debut at Global Dance Festival: Wild West Edition in 2015. The group consists of fellow EDM lovers who are willing to dedicate their festival experience to making sure yours goes off without a hitch. Whether an attendee is in need of water, medical attention, or just a point in the right direction, the Rangers will be circulating the crowds itching to help just as much as they’re itching to dance to their favorite sets. They won’t be hard to spot – you’ll see them throughout Hance Park in bright green T-shirts!
Ranger Outpost: All festival goers are welcome inside to use the zone as a meeting place with friends, to find a Ranger, charge cell phones or just cool off and drink water before going hard during the next set. Whatever you need, you’ll find it in the Ranger Outpost or with the help of the Relentless Rangers spanning the park.
Who wants free tickets?! This time around we will be offering free tickets through various contest and games to our Afterparties and Wet Electric!
Be on the lookout during your time at Rawhide for our social team wearing their black tanks, RB caps, maybe even some Wild West attire and likely taking a selfie!
