As all festivals so far have been canceled there is hope for summertime parties and festivals and I know that’s what we are all planning for. Pool parties are where it’s at during the summer. My favorite all-time music festival is SPLASH HOUSE! If you haven’t heard of it or haven’t experienced it yet, here is an overview of what it’s all about.
Splash House is a 3 Day House Music Pool Party Festival in Palm Springs. It is normally twice per year but in 2020 they have expanded it to 3 weekends. It is always the beginning of June and August. I haven’t missed one since 2016 and this year will make it 10 times I have gone. Each year just gets better and better. It has been around since 2013 with just 1 hotel and now it’s at 3 hotels. You will find different genres of house music at the Saguaro, Riviera, and the Renaissance hotels with an After Hours party that is held on the tarmac of the Palm Springs Air Museums for some deeper house vibes. Literally the coolest place to dance and party! This is a take over so hotel packages are available.
If you like Vegas this is even better with the vibe and the beats. With free shuttle party busses taking you to all locations any time you want, pick the lineup you want to see and the schedule.
This is a place where you can come with a crew or just alone and you’ll make so many new friends. I have only come with my party friend and this last year our whole splash house crew came together.
It is super hot so be prepared to get wet!
If you are staying with a hotel package, be ready to decorate your balcony for the bitchin’ balconies contest. During the weekend you will have your balcony judged for prizes of a free hotel package or tickets to the next year’s Splash House. Do you think you have what it takes to win? Let’s find out this year!
Here is a secret tip – after the After Hours Party (ends at 2 am), the Saguaro Hotel has an open common area by the pool with hammocks and just a place where people gather to dance and hang out. You don’t have to stay at this hotel to join and if you come this year, there will be a surprise party with some legit DJs. Also, be prepared to run into random dance parties in the all of the hotels after 2 am.
The Saguaro is my favorite as it is smaller and the hotel is closely surrounding the pool area. You can literally be on your balcony and still be a part of the party!
The Riviera has the stage right in front of the pool. If you want to splash around next to the DJ, this is where you go!
The Renaissance is the biggest pool area of the 3 hotels. Some of the biggest DJ’s play on this stage. This hotel party ends at 9 pm as the Saguaro ends at 8:30 pm.
You get to experience some amazing local LA DJs as well as some big names. How about closing to Claude VonStroke for some hard deep house by the pool at night!
There is such a vibe I can’t even explain. I haven’t experienced the same feel at other festivals I have been to. Because it is a smaller festival, it has a real community and family feel.
Bring those floaties, squirt guns, fans, and your funky pool party style! It is all about having fun!
Splash House to me is more than a festival. It is super special as I have met people who have changed the direction of my life in so many ways and it’s always something I will cherish.
