Festival-goers of all ages are in for a jaw-dropping experience that lasts for two days in mid-July. The Broncos Stadium at Mile High heats up on its own even without the help of the summer sun! Downtown Denver is host to Colorado’s biggest summer musical celebration, with incredible acts performing on five stages.
Dance to the sound of a techno beat, move to the tune of a pop producing DJ, or sway to music that only you can hear in the multi-genre silent disco. Getting your musical appetite satiated isn’t the only thing going on at Global Dance Festival! You will find installations to wow even the most versed art aficionado and carnival rides to thrill the ultra-experienced. Foodies can get their fill of delicious food truck fare, and those who like to shop can buy unique festival merchandise. Impromptu carnival-like performances will awe and entertain.
After a day of sun and sensory fun, retreat to your RV to unwind and recount the experiences of the day. The Denver area is one to be explored as an interesting aside to the Global Dance Festival, so plan a pleasurable trip to include glorious garden spaces and educational museums.
A general admission ticket lets you explore the festival grounds over one or two days. VIP tickets give you access to the VIP Global Village along with extras like expedited entry. Tickets are available at the gate only if the event is not sold out by that time. It’s best to purchase Global Dance Festival tickets online in advance and have them shipped to you so that you don’t miss out! Prices for General and VIP admission range from $75 to $350. If it’s a Cabana you want, you must reserve this unique space by contacting Global Dance Festival organizers.
I-25 is the route you want to take to get to Global Dance Festival. You will have a front seat view to many Denver attractions as you approach downtown, but keep your eye on the prize and set the coordinates straight for the festival. Upon arrival, festival security will expertly direct you to the secure parking area.
Parking in the neighborhoods surrounding the stadium is forbidden, and those who do park will risk towing of their vehicle. Play it safe and park within the stadium parameters. Parking tickets are sold as you enter the venue; despite the fact that there are 6,500 stadium spaces it is advised that you arrive early to ensure that you have a spot that can accommodate your RV.
Getting to Global Dance Festival is easily accomplished by using the convenient and comfortable light rail train system that has numerous stops just a few minutes walk from the stadium. Check the Regional Transportation District website for accurate and up to the minute information on getting around the Mile High City.
It is not possible to camp overnight at Global Dance Festival. Anyone coming to Denver will want to have a view of the Rocky Mountains, the crisp, cool waters, or colorful trees anyway. Guests can choose from several places where you can park your home away from home in a peaceful and tranquil setting.
If full hookups, cellphone reception, and a swimming pool to cool off in are high on your list, you won’t have trouble finding accommodation to suit your needs. If quick access to hiking in the Rockies, playgrounds, and cookout pavilions are more to your liking, you will find these without a problem, too! Point your RV toward those scenic views and drive to the ultimate weekend Denver retreat.
Global Dance Festival is a venue where attendees want to be on their feet and constantly on the move, traveling between stages so as not miss a beat of the music or a can’t-miss carnival ride. Because of the sheer density of bodies, there is no room for skateboards, rollerblades or any other type of wheeled transportation. Guests with a disability should contact organizers first to inquire about accessibility related to individual needs.
Heat and lots of it makes apparel that is light, airy, and comfortable a must. The weather can change from sun to showers, though; in addition to your summer attire, it is recommended that you tote some light rain gear in your bag. Bonus if that item can help you knock out a chill in the cool Colorado evenings. You are allowed to bring in a small bag that meets festival regulations. Sunglasses, a hat for the sun, and a change of shoes are two more necessities that will enable you to dance and party all weekend long!
A sealed bottle of sunscreen lotion (non-aerosol) is allowed and should be at the top of your packing list. An empty water bottle (or Camelbak) for refilling at the water stations is essential, too. Younger family members may appreciate a set of earplugs, and for recording your weekend memories, you can bring along a still camera or cellphone for taking advantage of those fabulous photo ops!
Denver is called the Mile High City because the elevation is a mile above sea level. This slight change of altitude for visitors to the area calls for attention to hydration. If you are native to the region, hydration is still important! Global Dance Festival will keep you dancing all weekend long; refill your water bottles often. The food trucks will be full of yummy snacks to keep your energy stores up. Reapply your sunscreen often and take shade occasionally throughout the day.
One of the best things about camping is the food. Fuel up for the day with a hearty egg and cheese submarine sandwich and when you return to camp after the festival, a fireside stir fry is always a favorite. If you forgot an item or hungry appetites are depleting your grocery supplies, shopping is nearby, so you can easily replenish the pantry. Before leaving for the weekend, check the propane levels in your rig.
Peppered throughout the city and very near to the stadium are eateries to satisfy every taste. Tacos, short ribs, steak, butter chicken, pasta and salads galore await. Whether you are in the mood for a fast meal before heading back to the campsite or would like to rest and chat over dinner, you will find no shortage of options!
Food trucks are one of the main attractions at Global Dance Festival. Local chefs and cooks will sate your appetite with the best Denver has to offer, allowing you to take your fill several times a day if you like! Snacks and full meal offerings are yours for the choosing in between eclectic theatrical, circus, and dance performances. Support local artists when you buy their music or clothing; ATMs onsite can provide you with cash if needed.
Global Dance Festival does not allow for re-entry. Once you have passed through security and have had your belongings checked, plan to make a day of it and stay put to enjoy all that the festival has to offer. Do not bring alcohol, marijuana, or narcotics into the festival; if you attempt this, you may be denied entry to this top-notch summer event. Global Dance Festival is an all-ages event; those 21 and up can purchase alcohol with a proper ID.
Denver is a location that typically sees a lot of sun year-round. Be prepared for unforeseen conditions just in case, but expect warm weather and low humidity in Denver. The city’s altitude plays a part in the making of glorious weather. July is the hottest month, though; pack your refillable water bottle to keep cool! Evenings can bring a crisp breeze, so throw a sweatshirt, hoodie, or long sleeves in your bag.
If you have medication that you need to bring to the festival, make sure that your prescription is easily identifiable in its original container. Medical staff will be on hand all weekend. If you see a fellow festival-goer in need, be sure to lend them assistance by alerting medical personnel.
