It just keeps growing: Last year, the annual Global Dance Festival expanded from one rave-tastic night at Red Rocks to two -- and the Triad Dragons have just announced a third GDF night at the premier outdoor concert venue in the country. Headlining will be Australia's Empire of the Sun, an electro-acoustic-psychedelic outfit.
The rest of Thursday will feature Kid Cudi, Big Gigantic, Innerpartysystem, Sam Adams, Hottub and some local acts. And if you need a refresher for the rest of the weekend: Friday night's lineup includes LMFAO, Major Lazer, Skrillex, Nero, Dieselboy, Paper Diamond, Manufactured Superstars, Axis of Evil, Fury, Ishe and more; Saturday night you'll see Benny Benassi, Gareth Emery, AVICII, Dada Life, Dave Aude, Emma Hewitt, Metropolis, Ecotek, Page, Dragon, Trajikk, Hycloud, James Egbert and more.
