If you haven’t been to Splash House because you were worried it was just another Vegas pool party, you should know that’s not the case. Splash House is an essential festival for all SoCal party-goers, and is a unique experience for anyone looking for a good time. Not only do they make each hotel into the wildest parties you have ever seen, they have created an experience like no other.
All three hotels in Splash House have a mind of its own. Saturday we hit the Riveria and saw the pool splash away to the point where we couldn’t even keep the camera close to the pool as everyone raged themselves to a point of musical confusion. Griffin Stoller brought the fans to life and moved the crowd to a dancing phenomenon. He incorporated some hip-hop throughout the house that got the crowd going.
Riveria was the wildest of people who brought the party, but as we moved to Renaissance we saw fans of the music who were there to work the crowd and feel each DJ who came on stage. As Walker and Royce moved on stage they had a full house, where people in line couldn’t even make it in the show. As insane as the show ended being up, Louis the Child grew a crowd that couldn’t end up stopping; they threw themselves to the music to the point that we couldn’t stop moving.
Since the last time we saw Louis perform, they seemed to have grown as an artist. They knew to throw mixes of Kid Cudi that made the crowd throw down more than any other stage we had seen and a few grimey beats that worked our legs through the floor.
Day 2 brought out some of the finest people as we waited for some of the bigger sets, but as the day progressed Saguaro was the place to be. The party moved as Kyle Watson dropped all the beats before Will Clarke blew people away.
We made the decision to remain at the Saguaro for the night instead of moving over to the Renaissance for Gorgon City. We partied at the Saguaro as the sun set to the sounds of MK. He blew minds when he brought on Fisher as a surprise guest, after his now third time performing for the weekend, letting ‘Losing It’ work the crowd. MK continued to rock the party until the officials asked him to close out.
This not only became one of the best Splash Houses I have seen but worked its way in with some of the most cheerful people with the hottest beats…
