Global Dance Festival Preview: Friday, July 20
Friday night’s lineup will be nothing short of an explosive way to kick off the ten year anniversary of Global Dance Festival. We have come a long way in the last ten years. Now, bringing big names like Steve Angello, Above & Beyond and Excision; with three nights of non-stop good music. We’re ecstatic to be showcasing genres across EDM ranging from trance, to progressive house, to electro, to heavy dubstep. Global Dance is here to rock your world and bring memories that are sure to last a lifetime. Here is a little preview of what you can expect from GDF on Friday, July 20th.
Steve Angello (12:30 AM – 2:00 AM) Main Stage
Arguably, one of the biggest and most respected names in house music; Steve Angello will leave behind a legacy as one third of the iconic group- Swedish House Mafia. As an extremely talented producer, a lively performer, and owner of Size Records, we have Angello to thank for progression of house music in today’s growing electronic music industry. We couldn’t be more excited to have him headline Friday’s show, and to be present for his first Red Rocks experience.
Steve Angello & Alex Metric ft. Ian Brown: "Open Your Eyes"
Knife Party (11:00 PM – 12:30 AM) Main Stage
Filth & Bass. That’s what you can expect from the 'seizure music' duo of Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen. Their production is polished, and their songwriting is inspired. The tension builds continuously throughout their music as you anticipate each and every drop, and when they do… there’s no turning back.
Knife Party: "Rage Valley"
Hardwell (9:30 PM – 11:00 PM) Main Stage
Dubbed as a ‘DJ to watch,’ Hardwell was voted #24 on DJMAG’s Top 100 list. The remix extraordinaire hailing from the Netherlands, Robert van de Corput, has showcased his skills for top producers such as Fedde Le Grand, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Bob Sinclar, Chris Lake, Laidback Luke, Steve Angello, Martin Solveig, Dada Life, and Gareth Emery. We are bound to hear some unforgettable productions and live remixes from this ambitious up-and-comer.
Felix Cartal (12:30 PM – 2:00 AM) Bass Stage
2012 has already proven to be a big year for Canadian producer, Felix Cartal. Felix brings a mature sound, with a sweet combination of club bangers fused with melodic electro ballads. His single “Don’t Turn On the Lights” hit big, and has received playtime across numerous media platforms this year.

3LAU (11:30 PM – 12:30 PM) Bass Stage
Justin Blau is primarily known for his jam packed, bangin’ mashups… and his Deadmau5 spin-off stage name. 3LAU uses popular electro and progressive house beats paired with the perfect combination of pop vocals to create an EDM concoction that has everyone singing and dancing along. It’s hard to pick a favorite…. But "DubSex" takes the cake for me.
Harvard Bass (10:30 PM – 11:30 PM) Bass Stage
Victor Hugo’s rich musical flavor has landed him some big gigs in the last year. Most recently, Harvard Bass tore up the stage at the 2012 Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. His style can be described as ‘a combination of elegant, smooth and sophisticated minimalism on one side and bad ass dirty jacking ghetto house grooves with filthy drums and simple, obsessive riffs on the other.’ Count me in.
Bart B More & Harvard Bass: "The Funky One"
Krewella (9:30 PM – 10:30 PM) Bass Stage
Chicago Natives Krewella have recently released their debut EP, Play Hard, in June 2012. The trio, comprised of producer Kris Trindl and sister vocalists Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf, are making a name for themselves by highlighting the group's sexy female vocals contrasted with heavy hitting bass music beats.
