Global Dance Festival Facts

Costumes are a big part of Global Dance Fest 2016 and every year's festival, some very unique and others simply racy and barely there. There are people dressed as cartoon characters, wearing fur-trimmed everything, body paints, clown attire, incredible wigs, and superhero get-ups. And there are many who wear next to nothing at all. Similarly, the same type of music and sub-culture exists at the annual Nocturnal Festival in both Texas and California.

The preparation that goes into setting up Global Dance Fest in its entirety is pretty amazing. The work done on the stage itself takes days to complete with hundreds of people contributing efforts to get the sound prepped and perfected, set up and test all the lasers and lights, and heave up the massive LED screen that sits in front of the stage. Together, all these elements come together to create an unforgettable live show with some of the best DJs in the world, like Benny Benassi, the famous Italian DJ, and Sasha and John Digweed.
