Splash House Brings the Heat For August Weekend 1

The popular west coast pool music festival, Splash House, returned to Palm Springs in August which marked a decade dancing under the sun for the iconic musical festival.

This year Palm Springs city council officially declared August 11, 2023, as “Splash House Day” a commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the popular musical festival.

This year’s Splash House season offers 3 weekends to dance while poolside. The first weekend was June 9-11 with the other 2 back to back weekends August 11-13 and August 18-20

Stages are located at three different hotels: Saguaro, Renaissance, and Margaritaville. There is also one stage located at the Palm Springs Air Museum which is where the after hours event is hosted.

All four stages are within Palm Springs city limits. A free shuttle service is provided that runs to and from all of the stages. Shuttle rides can be a fun experience of its own.

All three stages located at a hotel had a significant upgrade in production and stage ambiance from the previous years. There also were upgrades added to help festival-goers beat the heat such as more mist machines, fans, relaxation stations with coverings, and most noticeably a beautiful cabana that nearly doubled from the previous year at Renaissances.

All of these upgrades were highly noticeable, appreciated, and helpful towards splash mates having a more enjoyable experience.

Splash House has had some star-studded talent play on its stages over the decade. Artists that have made a splash on stage in previous years include Diplo, Dom Dolla, Gorgon City, Green Velvet, Chris Lake, Claude VonStroke, and John Summit.

With this year being Splash House’s 10-year celebration fans expected a heavy headliner lineup and Splash House did not disappoint. August Weekend 1 was full of the world’s most popular house DJs.

Odeza started the weekend off with one of their highly anticipated rare DJ sets at the After Hours at the Air Museum. Saturday CID, Jworra, and Lee Foss B2B Deeper Purpose all had headliner closing sets that would make any house music fanatic believe they were at the best set of the day. Sunday’s lineup was epic with top artists Vintage Culture, Wax Motif, and LP Giobbi as closing headliners.

Wax Motif and LP Giobbi both had high-energy sets that made their fans dance happily until the last beat while gaining new ones that night. Vintage Culture came out ready to give splash mates a set they soon will not forget. He played a set full of his most top songs like “ You give me a Feeling” and “Free” while also playing his popular mixes to songs such as Duke Dumont’s “The Power” and “Drinkee” by Sofi Tucker.

If Splash House can keep getting top-tier Djs and maintain its vibrant positive experience, then there will be many more decades of dancing under the sun for the iconic festival.
