Moby, Claude VonStroke headline Splash House festival

Moby, Claude VonStroke, Purity Ring and Tycho are among the acts performing or DJ'ing at Splash House

Still not ready to give up your Sahara and Yuma Tent fix yet? Splash House, the growing summertime dance music mini-fest in Palm Springs, has set its 2014 lineup, and it's a notably suaver addition to the usual summer EDM-fest fare.

Moby, Claude VonStroke, Purity Ring and Tycho are among the many indie-friendly acts performing or DJ'ing between June 13-15. Splash House has expanded to three poolside venues - the Saguaro Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs (home to many Coachella-tied side shows this year) and Hacienda Cantina & Beach Club.

The dozens of acts also sport a few rising and notable names, including recent the Weeknd opener Anna Lunoe and Cherrytree Records signee RAC. 

Splash House has become an interesting attempt to expand on the increasing dance-friendly audience of Coachella, a crowd that's plenty used to traveling to the desert for electronic music, but is perhaps beginning to age out of the constant fireworks of the Sahara Tent.

The fest is a joint venture from Goldenvoice and its new EDM-promoter acquisition LED. Tickets are currently on sale
