pool+music festival in Palm Springs
We So-Cal natives do our best to stay cool indoors with air-conditioning and iced-cold drinks. Suddenly every bit of shade and shelter from the sweltering heat counts. The Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism’s newly minted ads express it most succinctly, “Yes, it’s hot out here. That’s the point.” — this is how we say, “welcome to summer” in the Coachella Valley.
When it comes to pool parties, Palm Springs has them in legendary style and this summer, Splash House is kicking off Saturday June 13 – Sunday 14 promising to take that tradition to the next level with an epic, music-fueled festival by the pools of its three main venues: The Saguaro Hotel, Hilton Palm Springs and Hacienda Cantina & Beach Club.
Hosted under blue skies, glimmering pools, and palm trees of beautiful Palm Springs, California — it ranks No. 5 inEsquire magazine’s list of 8 sexiest cities in America. “The city’s vintage appeal attracts hip LA-types looking for some good old fashioned R&R, and delivers surprising allure, eroticism, and excitement.”
According to the Splash House website, this pool+music festival is unique in its closeness and diversity of its venues; attendees will be able to pool-hop between them to attend the different DJ sets and after-parties – all within a 5-minute shuttle drive of each other.
Splash House debuted in August 2013 attracting over 3,000 young adults. Conceived by two young locals based out of Palm Springs, Splash House takes a novel concept between Music Festival and Pool Party and blends them together along with the desert’s inimitable style. This summer, party people will get down with Bakermat, Cashmere Cat and the hottest DJ’s this side of the mountains. With Goldenvoice, the promoter of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Stagecoach — Splash House is poised to make some big waves in Palm Springs this summer.
