White Party Palm Springs 2015

Well Jeffrey Sanker certainly did it again.

I can’t say that I’ll be able to survive the WPPS experience my entire life as greys start to appear on my temple, but, until the day the day my knees finally give out on me (wow, that came out a lot dirtier than I wanted!), I’ll be attending and enjoying this epic event alongside friends and tricks, knowing that I’m experiencing one of THE parties of the year. 2015 was no disappointment.

The largest gay dance weekend in North America, over 30,000 men (and begrudgingly I admit a few women) arrive with sunscreen and not much else in hand to this event, ready to have the time of their lives. Not just a time to bang and run, this tiny town of overwhelming universal gay acceptance turns electric as men of all shapes and sizes are welcome and find a space to have an amazing time. That SAID, both the pictures you’ll see from this event and the majority of those in attendance you’ll actually meet, have been hitting the gym and skipping the carbs a BIT in prep for this one. So, while there’s a type for everyone: if your type is perfectly sculpted everything with a face to launch a thousand ships, you’re gonna have a great time here. I myself keep it trim to the point of looking like a PSA for malnutrition- and let me tell you: even an old twink like me can still find fun and love in the desert. And, so can you.

In case you didn’t already know, White Party 2015 is just around the corner, taking place April 24-27 in Palm Springs, California. I have personally been to this event a few times now and have always had such a blast! Perfect weather, amazing music and performances, and sexy men everywhere you look. There’s certainly something for everyone.

White Party Palm Springs Producer Jeffrey Sanker has also the addition of WET ‘n’ WILD Palm Springs water park to his White Party weekend line-up. This massive outdoor event, happening all day Saturday, features 20 water rides and attractions as well as live DJs. Water parks are one of my favorite things and I think this is an excellent addition to an already “wet & wild” weekend.

As they do every year, the performers and celebrities involved are announced bit by bit (keeping us on the edge of our seats)and so far so good! In addition to plethora of great DJs, WPPS has announced that Leann Rimes, Kelly Osbourne, and Frankie Grande will all be there this year. Find out what they’ll be doing below.

Holy hell, do I already have to cut carbs out of my diet? It’s literally at freezing temperature in Vancouver and I’m looking to prep (both physically and mentally) for the incredible adventure that is White Party, Palm Springs 2014 (WPPS). Not only will Jeffrey Sanker– the party’s longstanding owner and developer- be pulling out all the stops and exploding the tiny desert town with an influx of all things hot, fun and gay, but this is their 25th anniversary… I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s a bit afraid of what that will entail. (Afraid means turned on right…?)

We’ve received a recent press release of the 3-day insane party with the deets on the location and specifics of the major events… but this is just the beginning. In the weeks and months to come we’ll keep you in the know on possible giveaways coming out for tickets as well as the lowdown on the acts and stars that will be performing and just generally attending with their awesomeness at this event. Below is the released plan for the weekend adventure and my specific opinion and recommendations on what you should know in prep for these parties. I personally cannot wait to get back down South to make up some new amazing memories… and, let’s be honest: bang some new amazing guys.

This past weekend, Adam and I attended the 24th Annual White Party in Palm Springs, put on by Jeffrey Sanker. Aside from the amazing weather and sexy boys, one of things I love most about White Party are all of the amazing artists that perform. On Sunday night, an artist named K. Rose performed and I was not prepared for what I was about to see.

K. Rose is currently with Epidemic Music (super-producers of Cool & Dre). The singer/dancer performed her two singles, “Sleep When I’m Dead” and “A Voi E A Me’ (You and I),” as well as a teaser for an upcoming single called “Boo-G-Girl.” Her songs are hot, her dance moves are sick, and she’s definitely has the look. Seeing her perform, I felt like she was the total package and I literally got chills as if I was witnessing a star being born. I even looked around and noticed people’s jaws dropped and one guy beside me kept repeating, “Oh. My. God….” LOL.

Check out the music videos for her two singles, as well as my video footage from her performance at White Party so you can get an idea of how full out she was. I had the opportunity to meet her backstage after and she was so sweet. Enjoy!

White Party Palm Springs 2013 was everything we wanted. Period.

Patrick and I attended WPPS (as the “kids” in the know quickly informed me is what White Party Palm Springs is referred to as) over this past Easter long weekend and barely survived we had that much fun. Stepping from 55 Fahrenheit and overcast in Vancouver to blue skies and 85-90 degrees in beautiful Palm Springs, California, we knew things were on track the second we got off our plane. Patrick had been working his contacts and even I got into the mix setting up meet and greets, interview and events for our 5 day trip and the payoff was one hell of a time. WPPS is an annual event that takes place in the desert town of Palm Springs and attracts tens of thousands of gay men (sorry ladies, while you’re certainly allowed you will by FAR be in the minority) with its promise of perfect weather, lavish events and exciting performances: and this year had them all in spades. We took our time getting in a day early and staying a day late to fully prepare and decompress after the bang out weekend and boy were our bodies and minds happier for it. No matter what the liver damage or how many shirts we sweat through- it was worth it.

While I won’t give away the details of the performances before the click through- yes, you’re going to have to actually read my review to get to the highs and see the Avicii “I Could Be the One” music video remake that Patrick has been diligently working at this past week of filming to prepare for- I will mention the bigger names and sights to wet your appetite. I had my arms around a 9 foot tall draggin’ Willam who took one look at my Harley Davidson shirt and said: “Bitch, you a queen- you ain’t go no Haaaaarley!”; Patrick is currently sporting a profile picture with the new love of his life Carmen Electra; I may have offered to sleep with Icona Pop‘s impossibly beautiful Aino Jawo; and, Patrick has discovered the newest and greatest thing to come out of the LA music scene. And, that was only the beginning…

In addition to the already announced lineup of performers for Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party 2013 in Palms Springs next weekend, this week some surprise additions were added and another has joined the pack. Earlier this week, it was announced that Carly Rae Jepsen would be performing at the Sunday night T-Dance. Then, we learned that Girls Gone Wild founder, Joe Francis would be hosting the T-Dance and celebrating his 40th birthday party, inviting all of his celebrity friends including the Kardashian sisters! Now, yet another performer has been added to the list.

Vassey has been added to the lineup, headlining the Sunday night party and surely performing her hit “We Are Young,” remixed by Dave Aude. The song has made it to #1 on the Billboard charts and recently celebrated the victory at The Abbey in West Hollywood. So exciting to have so many great acts and fun people at the event and I can’t wait for Adam and I to get there! We’ll have a video montage of our experience so see what it’s like and join us next year if you can’t make it this year.

Check out Vassey’s #1 hit below and hope to see you on Easter weekend in Palms Springs! If you see us, come say hi!

Listen to some of her hits after the jump…

I was SO not expecting this but I’m not gonna lie, I’m excited. Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the spinoffs have been guilty pleasures of mine over the last couple years so it would be fun to meet them if I get the opportunity.

The announcement was made this week that Joe Francis, creator of Girls Gone Wild and Guys Gone Wild, is celebrating his 40th Birthday at the Sunday T-Dance and has been asked to host the event by his friends Jeffrey Sanker and The Abbey founder David Cooley. He’s inviting some of his celebrity friends which include Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim Kardashian. I wonder who else will be there! With the “fourth sister,” Kris Jenner make her way to White Party? LOL. It’s going to be one hell of a 40th Birthday Party, that’s for sure.

From how they worded the announcement, I’m not certain that this is the official second surprise that they had yet to announce, but it very well could be. Earlier this week, it was announced that Carly Rae Jepsen was performing and that there was one surprise still in store. Are YOU going to White Party? If so, Adam and I will see you there!

YES! I have already been beyond excited about going to Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party in Palm Springs at the end of the month. Now I’m even more excited!

On Sunday, White Party teased Facebook fans that today there would be two surprise announcements. Carly Rae Jepsen is the first of the two surprises and I can’t wait to see what the second one will be! Jepsen will be performing at the Sunday T-Dance which is such a blast! Last year, Melanie Omaro and Neon Hitch performed at that party. There’s no doubt the gays will be going crazy for Carly at this party. Such a great choice for the event. The other performers at the Sunday T-Dance included Carmen Electra, Icona Pop, and Willam, Detox, and Vicki Vox.

No Carly Rae Jepsen for the boy scouts, but DEFINITELY for the gays! Can’t wait! If you missed my post on all of the other acts this year, you can check it out here. Stay tuned for the second surprise act which will be announced later today!
