With Summer quickly approaching, festival goers are eager to see their favorite acts perform live post-pandemic. House music lovers in particular are geared up for this year’s Splash House in Palm Springs, California. This pool party paradise lasts for three days and features some of today’s hottest DJ’s and music artists. While headliner Diplo is always a must-see act, 360 are keen on seeing Chanel Tres, Kito, and Walker & Royce to name a few.
Artist, producer and DJ, Chanel Tres, has paved a new path for groovy house tracks mixed with hip-hop and R&B influences. His newest self-produced album, “refresh,“ speaks volumes to his skill and innovation as it features funky dance instrumentals, different than some of his past projects. Recently witnessing his set at the Coachella Soho House party, you can trust that he’ll be causing some ripples at the pools. Get ready to bump to something unexpected once you get a taste of his Chicago house sounds infused with classic West Coast rap.
Kito started learning how to produce using FruityLoops and got her kickstart on Diplo’s label, Mad Decent. Her 2021 banger, ‘Recap,’ features R&B duo VanJess and Chanel Tres, and was at the top of all our dance music playlists. Fans will surely be hype to hear it live along with other familiar favorites like ‘Bitter’ plus her diverse mixes. Mashing genres and culture from her gigs around the world makes Kito’s futuristic pop sets something worth watching.
Walker & Royce
The dynamic duo that is Walker & Royce have been producing their emotive, subdued and groove-heavy deep house since 2011. Fans can expect the ‘Role Models’ to bring their futuristic sets to the desert. From Holy Ship! to EDC Las Vegas, they’ve played an array of the top festivals. It’s exciting to see what they have in store for the show as they haven’t released new music lately and fans are eager for what’s to come.
Other artists 360 is excited to check out include Yung Bae and Shallou. It’s safe to say this year’s festival is back better than ever. For more info on Splash House and the rest of this year’s lineup, visit the official Splash House website.

The Summer festival series Splash House has announced the artist lineup for the first of its newly expanded triple weekend season in 2022. Celebrating its ninth edition, Splash House has established itself as a perennial favorite in the summer festival calendar, fusing forward-thinking electronic music, poolside partying, and resort amenities with the desert landscapes of Palm Springs. Splash House is now set to make a return to desert for an expanded three weekends this summer, taking place June 10-12, August 12-14, and August 19-21.
June attendees will be treated to a lineup that reflects the constant evolution of modern dance music, bringing together a mix of industry titans and emerging acts from around the world.
Artists announced for the June weekender include dance music’s most electrifying figures, such as Higher Ground and Mad Decent superstar Diplo, a DJ set from in demand Compton act and versatile beatsmith Channel Tres, and house hitters Dombresky and Noizu teaming up for a back to back set. Top billing continues with a DJ set from Sydney’s triple platinum tastemaker Hayden James, a b2b set from melodic dance producers Manila Killa and Chet Porter, electronica star Fort Romeau and groove-heavy house duo Walker & Royce.
All shades of house music in addition to crossover electronic live acts will be present throughout the weekend, including a mix of household names and emergent favorites. This includes the future-funk productions of Yung Bae, the infectious sounds of Dutch brother-sister duo Shermanology, a live set from emotive indie electronic singer and producer Shallou, bass-heavy house star Hannah Wants, and bonafide Chicago legend Gene Farris. The next generation will come proper to Splash House as well, repped by rising Australian record producer Kito, melodic house and downtempo producer Jerro, and singer-songwriter and producer Pauline Herr among many others.
By night, attendees can experience After Hours programming at the Palm Springs Air Museum while enjoying an open-air dance floor and witnessing artists perform alongside historic airplanes, all backdropped by the San Jacinto Mountains. This location has become a staple of the Splash House experience, while also hosting the debut of Desert Air last December. UK hitmaker Duke Dumont and progressive house favorite Yotto have been announced as the headliners, set to carry the day party into the after party at the air museum.
Attendees will again be spread across three resort venues, the Renaissance, Margaritaville, and Saguaro Hotels, which each have their own distinct feel transporting fans to multiple eras of Palm Springs aesthetic history all within the festival footprint.
It remains Splash House’s style-forward and fun-loving community that makes the event what it is. A hideaway from the urban sprawl of Los Angeles, Splash House fosters an environment fit for music fans, fashionistas, travelers, and those seeking a different kind of festival.
