Knowing that another year of Global Dub Festival was here to start off the season, it made the hike up those stairs much more worth it than usual. Global Dub Festival at Red Rocks Amphitheater was an amazing weekend spent with unlimited happiness and loads of bass.

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the lineup for this year and how exciting it was to await its arrival. With artists like Ghastly, Slander, Bro Safari, Datsik, and of course, the back to back to back set brought to you by Funtcase, Cookie Monsta, and Doctor P. The show threw massive amounts of bass to your face with some heavy trap music tossed in here and there.

As we walked into the venue, GA is already packed with the crowd getting lost in the music while Ghastly played a few of his bangers. Next up, the back to back to back set we had all been waiting for. The three bass gods managed to immediately transform the crowd into a giant head bangin’ circle. Everyone went wild as they dropped a remix of Flux’s original, “Gold Dust” while tossing a whole pan of chocolate chip cookies into the crowd at the drop.

What fired everyone up the most was how many bangers Funtcase threw into the set and how much he interacted with the crowd and diversified the music. With his signature look and hidden identity, Funtcase once again looked like a straight badass. With a variety of euphoric and trippy visuals, this set was outstanding and epic. We couldn’t have asked for a better trio of Funtcase, Doctor P, and Cookie Monsta. Each artist played a few of their tracks flowing into each other and of course, your variety of more heavy bass music to provide what was one of the greatest sets we’ve ever heard.
As the master himself came on, Datsik, it was as if a whole different kind of energy emerged from the crowd. Smoke dispersed from the stage and Datsik’s epic intro instantly assured you that this set was about to be one for the books. Not only did he play many of his newest tracks like: “Smoke Bomb”, but he also spent a lot of his set playing his oldest throwbacks. As one who has listened to and seen Datsik for many years, this was by far one of the best sets he has ever played. He shared great energy, interacted well with the crowd, and displayed his endless love for Red Rocks and the opportunity to headline at such an amazing venue.
A combination of his music and the biggest smile on his face made it the ultimate experience. The bass felt fantastic and the vibes were on point. We truly look forward to seeing Datsik headline again, and seeing what he has in store to come.
