Palm Springs Surf Club is Hosting a Coachella Pool Party

Every year, Coachella is a scorcher.

For instance, last year, temperatures hovered at or above 90 degrees Fahrenheit during the two weekends of the annual debauchery-filled music festival.

And all those sweaty concertgoers need a place to cool off.

Many attend pool parties, as supplementary soirees for the main event. Or, some just go out to the desert, skip the festival all together, and fist pump to house music at one of the many party-centric hotel pools in the surrounding area.

However, there’s a new, different kind of pool on the block this year; and they’re throwing their first Coachella-adjacent party during the festivities.

The Palm Springs Surf Club, one of the latest and most hyped wavepools to enter the chat in recent memory, will be hosting a music-filled shindig during the two weekends of Coachella. Artists will include Bicep (DJ set), Barry Can’t Swim, Skream and Benga, Jungle (DJ set), Neil Frances (DJ set), and others.

But there’s one problem: Will the wavepool be back up and running by then?

SURFER reached out for comment, but have yet to hear back. Although, this may be a good sign that things are coming back in Palm Springs.

For a little recap on the specs, here’s some info from the Desert Sun:

“The new $80 million-plus club is located on the former site of another iconic water-focused attraction from the city’s past, the Wet N’ Wild (previously Knott's Soak City) water park that closed in 2018 after 32 years of operation.

“[It] can accommodate 25 surfers who will be able to surf on artificial waves that can be individually customized for varying skill levels. Those waves will range from 2 to 7 feet.

“An hour surfing session will cost $100 to $200 depending on a surfer’s skill level (on top of the $20 club admission fee). Board rental is also offered at an additional fee.”

Here’s to hoping it reopens soon.
