Global Dance Festival kicked off its three day, three-stage party with a great mix of all types of electric dance music. The lineup this year had every EDM fan covered with all genres including: trance, house, dubstep, drum and bass, trap, hardstyle, and underground.
Benny Benassi is well known for his popular “satisfaction” track, but continues to bring upbeat house music along with 3lau, Lane 8, and Green Velvet. Headliners Above and Beyond, Kaskade, and Tiesto all had the crowd dancing with their upbeat trance tracks and incredible light displays. Trap was brought to us by Vanic, Slow Magic, Ecotek and others giving listeners anticipation for the bass to drop. There were also some dubstep artists like Seven Lions, Datsik, and Pegboard Nerds to provided the completion of a great EDM lineup.
Our favorite local artist of the show goes by the name Illenium. He is based out of Denver and has been catching attention all over the globe with his diverse remixes. His latest album titled Risen just released and is already catching the attention of listeners and the EDM charts. Check out “Drop Our Hearts” which recently hit number one on Dubstep.net and keep an eye on this local EDM gem.
