Hear Exclusive Splash House August 2023 Sets From Aluna, Anna Lunoe, QRTR & More

Most 10-year-olds don’t get poolside bacchanals for their birthday, but Splash House celebrated a decade of music, revelry and pool floaties with a pair of back-to-back bashes last month in Palm Springs, California, for their decade celebration.

The poolside dance/electronic festival hosted two weekends — Aug. 11-13 and Aug. 18-20 — at hotel properties around Palm Springs, along with evening parties at the Palm Springs Air Museum. These August events followed the June iteration of Splash House, which has been happening annually and biannually in Palm Springs since 2013.

“I’ve been putting on parties probably through grade school,” Splash House Founder Tyler McLean told Billboard in 2017. “Before it was any specific music or genre that people were feeling, it was just about throwing a party and the experience of bringing people in the doors and showing them a great time. As music tastes and all that grow, it all hit for me and I was like, ‘How about I just throw a party in my hometown with great music’ — this is during, like, peak Vegas, that whole big-room club scene — and I thought, ‘Why not throw the opposite experience?’”

Five years later, that “opposite experience” has become the prevailing sounds of global dance music, with Splash House again delivering a pair of cutting-edge and on-trend lineups for the thousands of fans arriving in the Southern California desert oasis.

Here, we’ve got nine hours of Splash House to relive, with exclusive sets from Aluna, on tour behind her sophomore album released in July; Australian house mainstay Anna Lunoe; Brazilian phenom Vintage Culture; QRTR, who’s been opening for ODESZA this summer and who’s playing the stacked Making Time festival in Philadelphia at the end of this month; U.K. powerhouse Sam Divine; and rising London duo JADED.
