As an attendee of every Splash House function since the events inception, it’s amazing to witness the progression. What began as a laidback pool hopper’s paradise for disco and house music has turned into a mecca for a much wider spectrum of the electronic music scene. With a festival scene saturated with big room sound, wild crowds and limited personal space, Splash House continues to prove its ranking as one of the top Summer destinations.
As an atendee of every Splash House since the pre-Goldenvoice era, I can tell you that this is much more that your average music festival. A weekend getaway to the deserts of Palm Springs, cool pools, cool people, and cooler tunes are what you can surely expect to draw from the experience. The best in house, nu-disco and future electronic music will yet again grace the desert decks this summer in June & August — and you won’t want to miss it. The Saguaro, Hacienda and Hilton will be the hosts for this year’s festivities, with shuttles running non-stop to get you to every set. Notable acts this go-around include Justin Jay, Tokimonsta, Cashmere Cat and a ton more. Opening Friday through Sunday June 12-14, ticket + two night hotel bundles start at $170, with tickets starting at just $99. Check out last years recap video & ticket links after the jump.

Sultan of Summer. Dance Music’s Jimmy Buffett. Mayor of Vibestown. Whatever you wanna call Viceroy, it’s clear that he has home field advantage at any summertime pool party, and Splash House in Palm Springs is the homecoming game. Round 2 of this summer’s poolside soiree is coming up quick (August 8th-10th), so we wanted to check in with our pal Viceroy in a little different way — with the Hawaiian shirt honcho responding to our inquiries only in the form of GIFs.

Last weekend, the GDD™ crew took off to Palm Springs for the 2nd annual poolside festival, Splash House, where the grooviest of DJs converged for a weekend of sun-soaked tunes spanning across three venues — The Saguaro (where we spent most of our time), Hacienda, and the Hard Rock Hotel. With hundreds of Angelenos making the short drive on the 10E, Splash House proved that a summertime pool festival is not just a good idea, it’s a GREAT one. Big ups to LED and Goldenvoice for putting on a successful weekender. There’s no doubt that GDD will be back for every Splash House in the future.
