Got your dancin' shoes ready? Good. You're going to need them. This year's edition of the annual Global Dance Festival is about to take over Red Rocks for the weekend with a stacked line-up of the hottest EDM acts. Yesterday, we set you up with a full tip sheet of the Twenty Must-See Acts at GDF. Today, we've pulled together a handy survival guide with a complete rundown on everything you need to know before you go, from what you can bring to what you can't bring to what you should bring, as well parking info, maps and the full lineup. Page down to get the goods.


DIRECTIONS

From RedRocksOnline: Red Rocks Amphitheatre is located in Red Rocks Park near Morrison, Colorado, 15 miles west of Denver. Coming from Downtown, take I-70 west to exit 259, turn left at the bottom of the Morrison exit ramp, cruise on downhill 1.5 miles to the Red Rocks Park entrance. Coming from south Denver, take C-470 to the Morrison exit, turn west and follow the signs to the Park entrances. Here's a tip to avoid some traffic: You can also exit C-470 at Highway 285. Take it west to Highway 8 and then come north to the Amphitheatre!

PARKING

Global Dance Festival 2012 survival guide

As an experienced veteran, you probably already know that parking at Red Rocks is really simple. You want to arrive a little bit early and park as close to the entrance as you can, so you can get in and out quickly and without any problems. Parking is free. To avoid the congestion of traffic flowing in from I-70, you may want to consider using one of the alternate entrances off of Highway 74 rather than the main entrances off 93.


WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING


Global Dance Festival features some of the world's biggest names in dance music right now, and the music will be blasting you from all angles (there are three stages). With that in mind, it may be a good idea to pack some ear plugs. It'll make the experience a little more enjoyable, so that you'll actually able to distinguish sounds. You also might want to pack a jacket. A rain poncho wouldn't be a bad idea, either. You never know if the temperature is going to drop or if rain clouds will gather, and so it's never a bad idea to come prepared.


WHAT YOU CAN BRING

• Non-alcoholic beverages in factory sealed and labeled plastic containers

• Coolers 12" x 17" and smaller (must fit under designated seat)

• Cloth bags, soft packs, pillows, back rests, rain coats or ponchos

• Food (fruit or vegetables must be sliced)

• Binoculars

• Seat cushions or soft-sided stadium seats

• Umbrellas (as small as possible and without points) - ponchos are much preferred!

• Strollers (folding umbrella style ONLY)

Note: All items you bring must be able to fit underneath your seat!
