Splash House 2024

When: Aug. 9-11, 16-18, 2024

Find your wet and wild paradise at the 21+ Splash House. Hosted across three Palm Springs hotel pools (and the Palm Springs Air Museum!), this summertime event is like a mini music festival. Electronic dance music bumps through the speakers while you vibe in the pool with your besties. Hotel and festival packages can be purchased online for one of two weekends (Aug. 9-11 and 16-18)—or both if you’re feeling extra frisky. GA passes include transportation between venues with upgraded passes, tables and daybeds available. To get the ultimate experience, we recommend snagging the VIP after-hours passes and renting a cabana! Bring your favorite floaty, and don’t forget your sunblock. This party gets super hot!

The weekend kicks off with The G Spot Friday pool party at Margaritaville Resort’s main pool, and then rotates through other Palm Springs venues, like Reforma Nightclub. In the past, live entertainment has included the likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and The Pussycat Dolls. Rose Garcia, from the reality show “The Real L Word,” will be hosting this year, while the hottest desert DJs will be spinning your favorite hits. Tickets are available the day of, or you can buy a weekend festival pass—definitely the way to go if you ask us!
