Splash House is an all-new, multi-venue pool party happening next Saturday and Sunday out in bright and sunny Palm Springs. Our friends from Private Label, LED, and Pacific Festival have curated a fantastic 2-day lineup with stages at the Saguaro, Curve, and Caliente Tropics hotels, featuring some of the best names in poolside tunes including Classixx, Bag Raiders, Eats Everything, and yes, Poolside. In honor of this event, we’ve teamed up once again with our friends at TAVIK to give away TWO packages for one guy and one girl, with tickets, t-shirts, swimwear, and more. Enter to win these packages worth well over $250 below. Continue Reading

March is by far the busiest, yet most fun month of the year for dance music lovers and professionals. SXSW (Austin) and WMC (Miami) both host tens of thousands of enthusiasts from around the world, and this year we teamed up with our good friends TAVIK, a music driven lifestyle brand designed for active individuals engaged in modern beach culture, for an epic RV road trip across America, hitting stops from Los Angeles to Miami over the course of nearly two weeks, starting Tuesday, March 19th. With our very own GDD DJs Bones, Troy Kurtz, and Burn Unit in tow, we hopped on board a few of our friends’ showcases, as well as presented a couple ourselves. Here’s how it all went down…

After a much needed sleep recharge, we awoke the next day revived and ready to hit Austin hard. Downtown was already bustling with crowds swarming the streets, a cool breeze making our trek all the worth while. We headed straight to the Fader Fort party, eager to experience what had been talked up as a must during the week of events. Our early arrival paid off huge, beating the masses (which would later make to be one of the most serious lines we had ever seen). The Fader Fort was no makeshift showcase – the fort-like layout featured interactive areas with everything from free haircuts to foosball to a serious open bar with Bushmills Arnold Palmers and unlimited tall cans of Budweiser.

We got there just in time to see the SXSW debut of UK’s Rudimental, an incredible live performance that as they described “put soul back into electronic music.” After some downtime in the couch abundant lounge area, we caught sets by Ra Ra Riot, afro-punk duo The Bots, the heavily anticipated live performance of Disclosure (that did not disappoint), and phenom rapper Future, who brought out T.I. and Usher…
