That’s exactly what will transpire in Denver this summer, as the Mile High City will usher in the high of the warm season by throwing the biggest dance party the Rocky Mountains has ever witnessed. That party is the Global Dance Festival, which adds one more reason as to why Colorado’s largest metropolis is one of America’s best areas to party.
The Global Dance Festival is exactly what it sounds like, a huge festival that will bring some high energy acts to Sports Authority Field. This party is so large that it will span an entire weekend in late July, and the lineup is pretty spectacular.
In addition to Future, deadmau5, and Tiesto rocking the stage, EDM fanatics will also get their fill of Gucci Mane, Cosmic Gate and a host of others. The fun is all rolled up into a unique package that will have all those who pass through the gates still waving their glow sticks well after the show has ended.
Below is the complete rundown of artists scheduled to appear in Denver for the dance fest this July. Be sure keep this article pinned and check back for updates here as the fest announcements roll in.

As winter turns to spring in California, the birds and the bees are doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing at this time of year; all those “the birds and the bees” things. Case in point, these gracefully gorgeous American avocets, (Recurvirostra Americana) captured in a postcopulatory display by photographer Don Quintana. Don writes:
Probably my most favorite mating display to watch is the display of the American Avocet. Black-necked Stilts share a very similar display with water splashing, mounting, cloacal kiss, and then a short dance where their bills are crossed. But the Avocet with its bright red head and curved bill just captures my heart.
It’s certainly one thing to take a stunning portrait of a bird but capturing behavior is just the icing on the cake! Whether it’s dancing cranes, grebes running a top water, or American Avocets caressing afterwards, the mating display of birds is a must watch event. Each one has its intricate details, and fine beautiful moments. If you are out there taking photographs, now it’s the time to watch for this behavior!

A Montreal driver says his passionate rendition of C+C Music Factory’s 1990 hit “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” earned him a $149 fine.
On September 27, Taoufik Moalla was driving to the store to purchase some water when the cheesy 1990s pop hit began playing. Without any hesitation, he began passionately singing along. As he belted notes in his car, he heard a police siren playing behind him.
“I was thinking they wanted to pass, but they called on the speaker, ‘Please go to the right side,’” Moalla told CTV Montreal. “I stopped and four police came, two on each side, and checked the inside of the car. Then they asked me if I screamed. I said, ‘No, I was just singing.’”
According to Moalla, police checked his license and registration and then came back with a $149 ticket. The offense? Screaming in public. A Montreal bylaw states: “to cause disorder by screaming” violates “peace and tranquility” and is punishable by a fine of $50 to $1,000 for a first offense and $100 to $2,000 for subsequent infractions.
Said Moalla, “I don’t know if my voice was very bad and that’s why I got the ticket, but I was very shocked. I understand if they are doing their job, they are allowed to check if everything’s okay, if I kidnapped someone or if there’s danger inside but I would never expect they would give me a ticket for that.”
He added that his singing wasn’t very loud. Apparently it sounded “just if you are happy and you like this song.” Though the ordeal was ridiculous, the Montreal citizen managed to keep calm. He recalled, “I said, ‘Okay, thank you,’ because I know I can contest the ticket. They were doing their job.”
Moalla will be contesting the ticket. He says that once he is in front of a judge, he will simply recount how he got the ticket. “Imagine if the Canadiens won a game,” he said. “All the fans are going to scream out of their cars. They’re going to sing. Are you going to give them all tickets?”
Humorously, his wife said she isn’t surprised her husband’s vocals resulted in a fine. Moalla told the press, “She told me, if it was for singing, I’d have given you a ticket for $300.”
