What Is Splash House?

An entirely poolside music festival, Splash House takes place over three weekends and three days each, and features primarily EDM DJs, house, and disco music. Not only is the weather in Palm Springs ideal for a poolside festival, but the city also has access to luxury resorts and hotels that make the perfect backdrop for the event.

Where To Buy Tickets

Tickets for Splash House can be bought on their website. They have multiple tiers to choose from, including general admission for the poolside event, general admission to their after hours event, and VIP tickets that get you access to both.

Also included on their website are add-ons like private cabanas, field trips like Omakase dinners, and tequila tasting. They also have a store on their website with plenty of merchandise to commemorate your time there.

Where To Stay

While there are plenty of places to stay off-site, one of the best ways to enjoy the experience is to purchase one of Splash Houses hotel packages. The host hotels for 2023 include Margaritaville, Renaissance, and The Saguaro Palm Springs, as well as one off-site hotel which is Hilton Palm Springs.

These packages are truly the best bang for your buck, as you receive a full weekend stay at the hotel, GA passes for the event (and the option to add on the after hours event at a discount) and shuttle transportation to and from the venues.

Many past Splash House attendees highly recommend getting a room with a balcony as Splash has their “Bitchin’ Balconies” contests with prizes given out to the best decorated balconies of the weekend.

Where To Eat

In all three venues, there are plenty of food booths to choose from. It is possible to have anything from burgers and hot dogs to fresh, tasty Californian cuisine.

In addition to the food booths at the event, the hotels also offer some incredible restaurants, such as the Date restaurant at the Renaissance hotel and JWB Grill at Margaritaville, which offers delicious coastal cuisine and an incredible atmosphere.

What To Wear

You can leave plenty of room in your luggage for souvenirs, as all you’ll need here is your bathing suit and a coverup if you’re only doing the daytime event.

It is recommended to bring an extra change of clothes if you are also getting general admission to the nighttime event so you won’t have to wear a bathing suit for the remainder of the evening.

Splash House Essentials

There are some essentials you can’t go wrong with bringing to Splash House. It is important to note that many music festivals like Splash House have prohibited items, so it is wise to look up the specific policies on the website. With an event like splash house, permitted items are also up to individual hotels.


Towels are a must bring item to Splash House as you will be going from hotel to hotel and the venues will often not provide you with the towels themselves. Splash House says small-medium towels are permitted at all locations

Non-Metal Water Bottles

Staying hydrated all weekend is incredibly important at any music festival, but especially one like Splash House as Palm Springs temperatures during the summer months can reach up to 115ºF. Splash House policies require that any bottles brought be made of non-metal materials for safety concerns

Credit/Debit Cards

A credit or debit card is another important item to bring to Splash House, as the event is entirely cashless. Many attendees will use water proof card lanyards to make sure they have easy access to their cards at all times. Many vendors will also accept Apple and Android Pay.


Earplugs are often considered an essential for all attendees that want to protect their hearing. This is especially applicable if you’re someone who enjoys being as close to the stage as possible, as the speaker’s volume can damage your hearing without appropriate measures like earplugs.


With the aforementioned high temperatures of palm springs, it’s almost a guarantee that there will be sun all weekend long, that is why a high spf and waterproof sunscreen is a must for the event. It’s also important to make sure you reapply sunscreen throughout the day.

Phone Chargers

If you’re the kind of person who wants to make sure as many memories as possible are preserved on your phone, plenty of portable phone chargers are a must! Many online stores like amazon will offer a discount for chargers bought in bulk, so it’s a good thing to stock up on them.

Music Festival Etiquette

Music festivals are a great way to have fun, but it is important to be mindful of other people at the event. It is important to respect the space of others, be mindful of your volume when in your hotel, and to stay aware of your surroundings. Additionally, it is important to be respectful of the venue and the staff. Do not litter, leave your trash behind, or bring items that are prohibited.

It is also important to keep track of the people you are with. Do not leave your friends behind and make sure to know their whereabouts throughout the weekend. Be sure to look out for one another and make sure everyone is safe. Additionally, it is important to be aware of any suspicious activity and alert security if necessary.
