Back for its fourth year this summer, Splash House will once again take place over a pair of weekends in the desert with a dance-focused lineup that should catch the attention of EDM fans throughout California and all along the West Coast.

The boutique music festival that’s more or less one giant pool party in Palm Springs this June and August will feature sets from headliners ODESZA (DJ set) and Gorgon City (DJ set), along with Guy Gerber, Justin Martin, Snakehips, Hudson Mohawke and many more at The Saguaro and The Riviera. See the artist lineups for each weekend below.

For those who won’t get their fill just by catching all the action poolside, Splash House will also host after-parties at the Palm Springs Air Museum, where Flight Facilities, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Justin Jay & Friends and Claptone are scheduled to perform.

Tickets for the 21-and-over event start at $120. The Riviera has travel packages starting at $200 per person with weekend tickets and hotel accommodations included. Two-night passes for the festival’s after-parties will be sold separately and start at $30.

Mad Decent Block Party takes over a sold-out Greek Theatre Berkeley

Los Angeles-via-Philadelphia record label Mad Decent has been throwing its increasingly popular block-party series for the last seven years, starting as a free event in 2008 before charging admission for the first time in 2014.

The label, which was spearheaded originally by producer, DJ, songwriter and why of course infamous shit talker Diplo, stepped up its block-party game in 2015, impressively selling out the Greek Theatre at U.C. Berkeley earlier this month with an electronic-heavy bill of artists.

Headlined by Diplo’s reggae/dancehall/moombahton side project Major Lazer, the Northern California version of this year’s Mad Decent Block Party also featured sets from CL, RL Grime, What So Not, Thomas Jack, Giraffage and Slaptop.

SF Show of the Week // GO4FREE to Tensnake at Mezzanine 9/11 (FRI)

Marco Niemerski, better known by his stage name Tensnake, emerged from the disco-ball spotlight in 2010 with his hit single “Coma Cat”, which has since appeared in more than 50 compilations. Born in Hamburg circa 1975, the sounds of disco, boogie, soul, funk and of course 80’s pop all contribute to the groovy reverberations of this German DJ and producer.

In 2014, still celebrating the success of “Coma Cat”, Tensnake released his debut full-length album Glow featuring collaborations with Fiora, Jacques Lu Cont, MNEK and Nile Rodgers, among others. The album received favorable reviews, especially for the choice to include Fiora in almost half of its tracks.

This Friday, Niemerski will bring his luscious 80’s disco hooks to SF’s Mezzanine with Plastic Plates, Slaptop and The Split providing support. You can buy tickets for $25, or you could win a pair of tickets by registering your full name and email below.

Contest ends this Friday at 3 p.m.
