Global Dance Festival Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary
This year marks the 10th year anniversary for Colorado’s biggest dance music festival. Dance music has certainly become more popular in the past decade and this year the festival takes place in four cities across the United States all in the same week. The festival will hit Detroit, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and Denver the third week of July.
After a wildly successful nine years, Global Dance Production wanted to come back with an anniversary event that will place Global Dance amongst the ranks of the world’s premiere dance festivals. “It’s been an exciting decade long journey through the ups and downs of dance music culture,” CEO Ha Hau said. “The last few years we’ve seen dance music explode and I’m grateful to see GDF grow to this unprecedented level.”
Despite taking place in four cities over the course of five days, each city will offer a similar mix of artists. Detroit and Minneapolis will have Above & Beyond, Knife Party, Wolfgang Gartner, and Mord Fustang. Kansas City adds Steve Angello. And the flagship Denver event adds Hardwell, Morgan Page, Nadia Ali, EC Twins, Excision, Zeds Dead, and Dillon Francis among many, many others.

10th ANNUAL GLOBAL DANCE FESTIVAL COLORADO
Produced by Global Dance
Nestled in the Rocky Mountain Foothills fifteen miles west of Denver, there stands a symbol of nature’s unparalleled majesty. Red Rocks is a geologically formed, open-air Amphitheatre that is not duplicated anywhere in the world. With Mother Nature as the architect, the design of the Amphitheatre consists of two, three hundred-foot monoliths (Ship Rock and Creation Rock) that provide acoustic perfection for any performance. Red Rocks has hosted the world’s elite musicians including U2, Celine Dion, Metallica, and Coldplay. On a special weekend each year, Red Rocks is home to one of the largest music festivals in the Rocky Mountain United States.
Every summer the world’s premier dance music artists travel to Colorado to play for thousands of music enthusiasts under the open sky at Red Rocks. With over 20 years of combined nightlife experience, Ha Hau and Kostas Kouremenos, created GDF to celebrate the evolution of electronic music. The show has evolved into a massive gathering of people from all over the United States. It is the only event of its kind in the Rocky Mountains. Over the years, fans have gathered to listen to the sounds of the world’s greatest electronic music artists including Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, BT, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten, Sasha, John Digweed, Benny Benassi and many more. This show is a stunning spectacle featuring state-of-the-art lights and lasers that accompany every beat from the best sound system in Colorado. Global Dance Festival is without a doubt one of the premier electronic music event in the United States.
We are very excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Global Dance Festival with three days of electronic music on July 20th, 21st, and 22nd!
