Brace yourself for a boozy blizzard at “WHITEOUT” on Saturday night. The Palm Springs Convention Center will be blanketed in snow to help guests cool down in the desert heat. Whether you choose to stick to the traditional white dress code or go all out with a snow and ice costume fantasy, “WHITEOUT” is sure to be an unforgettable experience. Get ready to dance the night away with DJs Shane Marcus (USA), Mor Avrahami (Israel), and GSP (Greece) at the main event.

On Sunday, celebrate under the beautiful Palm Springs sky at the world-famous White Party T-Dance. “ORBIT” reimagines T-Dance as an extra-terrestrial spacecraft landing on the “Stranger Springs” desert floor. State-of-the-art sound, lighting, video, and recently “abducted” White Party dancers will be on the stage all night long grooving to the beats of WP’s “OG” DJ lineup. For the first time ever spinning together, DJs Dawna MontellManny Lehman, and Tony Moran will lead you through time and space, culminating in an epic firework show with a final surprise that has never been seen in the Palm Springs desert.

The weekend culminates in a high-energy climax with “ESCAPE”, the closing party on Sunday night. As soon as “ORBIT” ends, DJs  Phil Romano (Italy) and Micky Friedmann (Germany) will take the reins and keep the beats flowing into the morning. Get ready to dance until you can dance no more.
