Monolith may get more press, but of the summer's Red Rocks festivals, Global Dance Festival is not only bigger and more well-established, it's also a better place to see lots of gorgeous, half-naked women (see the video embedded above, which may be NSFW depending on your workplace. Yowza.) And this year, GDF promoters the Triad Dragons are reaching out to the community to choose the fest's headliners. The list of possible choices includes most of the popular DJs and live acts of the electronic dance world, including DeadMau5, Richie Hawtin, Kaskade and the Chemical Brothers. Currently, DeadMau5 is the clear favorite, with almost a quarter of the votes cast. Close behind him are Armin Van Buuren and Tiesto (17 percent and 13 percent, respectively). If those choices don't quite line up with what you'd like to see at the festival, make sure to hit theTriad Dragons MySpace page
to vote for your favorite and/or bitch about who's winning.
