Global Dance Festival

When: July 14-16 2011

OK, obviously you're going to want to skip school, work or whatever tomorrow, because tonight's Global Dance Festival headliners — semi-underground hip-hop emcee Kid Cudi and Australian dance/pop duo Empire of the Sun — are both pretty essential. The ninth annual rave-up at Red Rocks (18300 W. Alameda Pkwy., Morrison, globaldancefestival.com), which runs through this Saturday, offers three stages of continuous talent to keep you and your glow-sticks fully occupied. Naming all the acts could fill this blurb three times over, so suffice it to say that other must-sees include U.K. dubsteppers Nero and novelty funksters Major Lazer on Friday, as well as electro hitmaker Benny Benassi and rising trance artist Gareth Emery on Saturday. Festivities kick off at 4:30 today, and you can find the full schedule online. Three-day passes are unfortunately sold out, but single-day tickets are $69. — Bill Forman
