Summer is upon us, and if you’re in Southern California, that can only mean one thing: Splash House. This year, the desert oasis known as Palm Springs is once again hosting the trifecta pool-party otherwise known as Splash House. 2022 marked the first time the weekend was to take place over three different weekends. With the June edition now behind us, we are focusing on the two remaining August dates, which are expected to premiere this weekend, August 12-14. If you’re about to go, keep reading because you might end up having fun by the time you’re done reading.
In typical Splash House fashion, the fun is split between three of Palm Springs most iconic hotels/locations. here are the Renaissance Hotel, Margaritaville Resortand Saguaro Palm Springs. On top of that, the After Hours nighttime lineup is set to take place at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Note that a single ticket gives you access to all three, as well as the free shuttle linking all the evenings together. For a brief overview of each location, check out each location’s respective map below.
Before I get to the daily lineup for each day, I wanted to share with you some of my personal recommendations. I will skip the headliners such as Nora In Pure, John Summit, Dombresky, Polo and pan & dabin, because I’m sure your own musical tastes will dictate where you end your evening. I’m personally torn between seeing Nora and Summit, but will most likely try to split my time between the two. On the other hand, I have to say I’m excited to see who the unannounced special b2b will be, so there’s a chance I’ll head there instead. Without further ado, I will now focus on some of the other artists on the lineup, as well as some of the opening acts.
To start, I recommend you to check Offaiah. If you’ve been around for a while, you might recognize him by his old nickname and real name. Michael Woods. A legend in his own right, it goes without saying that he knows how to move the crowds.
The next step is Joshua. The London-based DJ/producer has quickly become one of the most exciting names on the underground dance scene. You might know him from his escape trail’my bumps‘ next to Lee Foss.
Luke Andy is another name that comes to mind, I’ve seen him play a few times, and he always brings the heat. He has releases on major labels such as Dirtybird, Rules Don’t Apply, Desert Hearts and Basement Leak. If you want to have a good time, check it out.
Cassian is the following. A last minute addition, replacing Reprimand, Cassian is one of my most anticipated sets of the weekend. He works closely with Rüfüs Du Sol, and even won a grammy for his work on the RDS track ‘Living’. While his work with them speaks for itself, his own sets and productions are out of this world. His air’React’ has been stuck on loop for a few months now, and his recent remix of RDS’s ‘On my knees‘ is just as good. You don’t want to miss this.
My final recommendations are going to be Massanand torrent foot. Massane came out on Lane 8’s “That never happened”, and shares a similar vibe to the label boss. Torren Foot, meanwhile, is an Australian producer/dj. He was nominated for the 2017 ARIA Award for Best Dance Release for his song “Be Randy” alongside Dom Dolla. They are both worth seeing.
While the latter part of each day’s respective lineup is filled to the brim with talent, the earlier parts are no different. For starters, I highly recommend checking out Eric Sharp. It will be his beginning and always brings warmth. We wrote about his last Emergence EP that is worth the detour. You can check this here.
As for the rest of the range, your choice is as good as mine. Splash House is known for its excellent selection of programs, and this year’s events are no different. I heard a few sets, as well as tunes from Twin Flame and Rozegarden, Brett Hartand AM In the afternoon. That said, I can’t wait to catch their sets. For a preview of what to expect from this weekend’s festivities, check out the official times below.
