Get the most out of your time at Splash House with these essential tips and highlights from the MP3 MAG team.

Dive into the Lineups

The lineup for both weekends of Splash House is spectacular, with a blend of iconic names and rising stars in the electronic music scene.

Weekend Two is equally impressive, with performances from Skream, Tchami, and a club set from DRAMA. Add to that an After Hours performance from Chris Lake, and you have a surefire recipe for unforgettable nights of music.

Relish the Host Hotels

Splash House offers a unique festival experience at three Palm Springs hotels: Renaissance, Margaritaville, and Saguaro. Each venue features its distinct style and vibe, providing festival-goers a vibrant backdrop to dance, relax, and make memories. From your poolside room or balcony, you can catch your favorite artists before joining the dance floor action.

Unearth the New Additions

This year, festival attendees have more accommodation choices with the addition of offsite options at Palm Mountain Resort & Spa and L3 Oasis Hotel. Conveniently located near the festival venues, these hotels also provide shuttle services, ensuring you never miss a beat of the action.

Settle in for After Hours

The After Hours event at the Palm Springs Air Museum is a must-attend for any festival-goer. Surrounded by historic aircraft and the stunning San Jacinto Mountains, dance to the sets of leading artists such as Maya Jane Coles and ODESZA in Weekend One and Channel Tres and Chris Lake in Weekend Two.

Let the Music Guide You

With such a diverse lineup, attendees will have a chance to explore a wide array of electronic music styles. From the viral hit-making tunes of Veggi and LP Giobbi’s crossover style in Weekend One, to the hard-hitting beats of Sidney Charles and the unique stylings of Demuja in Weekend Two, every musical preference is catered for.

Make the Most of Shuttle Services

Stay connected with the festival venues thanks to the shuttle services. These shuttles, free for those with a festival wristband, run hourly between the Palm Mountain Resort & Spa and Renaissance Palm Springs, and the L3 Oasis Hotel and Margaritaville, from 12-7 P.M.

Preserve Your Energy

Remember, Splash House is a marathon, not a sprint. With multiple days of non-stop music and fun, it’s essential to pace yourself. Make sure to stay hydrated, get plenty of rest, and keep fueling up with food throughout the event.
