Summer 2016 Has Officially Arrived: Splash House is this Weekend!

Palm Springs is like the Hamptons of the West Coast. As any New Yorker will tell you, it is not summer until you’ve had a weekend in the Hamptons. Well sorry New York, but on the West Coast, a Palm Springs pool party trumps all and I am beyond excited to be kicking off my summer at Splash House.

Splash House June 2015 Palm Springs California.

Splash House is the perfect festival to begin and end you summer, as it will be over two weekends June 10-12 and August 12-14. This year, Splash House will be hosted at the vibrant Saguaro Hotel and iconic Riviera Resort.  The boutique festival has earned itself a reputation as a singular taste making stop for live acts and DJs on the summer festival circuit. Splash House is the perfect festival for those who can’t wait another 10 months to Coachella and need their desert fix! It is basically like being in the Yuma Tent, minus the disco shark and shade.

Much like San Diego’s CRSSD festival, Splash House curates an underground and tropical house line up to give you those #summer16 vibes. This year’s lineup features global underground titans Gorgon City, Guy Gerber, Justin Martin, Lee Foss, Bondax, MK, crossover specialists Odesza, Snakehips, Hudson Mohawke, Jai Wolf, and rising stars like Billy Kenny, Cut Snake, Bearson, Jerry Folk, and many more.


After Hours at the Palm Springs Air Museum was undoubtedly one of the festival’s highlights last summer. Dancing under the desert night sky amongst the hulls of the museum’s vintage aircrafts combines for one of California’s most unique party settings.  This year, The Air Museum lineup will feature the live electronic mastery of Flight Facilities, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Justin Jay & Friends, plus the mysterious Claptone.

With world-class music, convenient hotel venues, and scenic desert surroundings, Splash House offers a refreshing take on the live music experience.  Attendees can dance all day just steps away from their room and hop freely between venues in the Splash House shuttles.  It all comes together to create the unique sense of Splash House camaraderie that has fueled the festival’s growth into a staple Southern California event.

Guests must be 21+. Tickets start at $120. Travel Packages are available at the Riviera Hotel starting at $200 per person; all packages include weekend tickets and hotel accommodations.  Two-night Air Museum After Hours passes start at $30. So grab your bikinis, Ray Bans, and (if you are as pale as I am) sunscreen, and get ready to feel those Splash House vibes this weekend!
