ETHDenver is slated to return to the City of Denver for its 6th Annual Community Gathering and Buildathon. A week-long conference for web3 professionals and enthusiasts, it kicks off on February 24th and runs through March 5th.
As those who are into cryptocurrency (such as the popular Ethereum token from which ETHDenver borrows its name) can tell you, web3 could be the future of the internet. From non-fungible tokens allowing individuals to establish ownership over digital media to decentralized financial technologies and everything in between, blockchain technologies promise to revolutionize the digital space. Touted as the “…next generation of the web’s technical, legal, and payment infrastructure” by the Bennent Institute of Public Policy, web3 has the potential to change the world.
One of the founding members of ETHDenver, Dustin Goodwin aka BigRedMachine, has decided to celebrate this year’s gathering with a two-night dance party. The gathering, ETH Dance, will take place at the historic Reelworks.
Night one of the event on March 3rd features the sounds of Bastian Bux, N2N, and T-Rav. Selecting for night two, March 4th will be Joeski, Ryan Crosson, and BigRedMachine. Both nights promise to deliver Funktion-One sound and next-level lighting production.
Reelworks, located in the River North (RiNo) arts and cultural district in Denver, provides the perfect setting for the event. Like most venues in this area, Reelworks is a renovated warehouse space. It is historically noteworthy for once being the second-largest employer in the state (behind the Adolph Coors Brewing Company). Its moniker comes from the fact that the previous occupants were the largest manufacturers of film reels in the world.
ETH Dance Denver:Show Preview
ETH Dance knows its audience and will cater to the fixed-beats side of electronic music for the tech crowd they anticipate. The mixes featured on the ticket sales page showcase a world-class blend of techno and house. A personal favorite of mine is the Bastian Bux mix, which brings elements of world music and funk to the forefront with the steady dance backbeat driving the rhythm.
Still feeling great? Keep it going late
For those looking to keep the party going well into the early hours of the morning an after-party for each night has been arranged by local promoter Tekunomama. Both nights’ after-hours events come highly recommended. For the late-night festivities of night one, the Denver debut of Mark Broom, with support from Max Garnder and J Claus will not disappoint! For the night owls interested in night two, Steve Bug will bring the heat all night long.
Tickets for all four events are available here.
