Summertramp, L.A.’s Waterpark-Cum-Nightclub, Returns to the Desert

Opt for fun in the sun (and booze and skimpy suits and waterslides) the weekend of Oct. 1 at the Saguaro Palm Springs

Pack up your sexiest swimsuits and a tub of sunscreen and head to the desert, as L.A.’s favorite poolside party is making an eastern trek. SummerTramp, the brainchild of local party people Andrés Rigal, Justin David and Luke Nero, is bringing its “magical brigadoon of decadence and delight” to The Saguaro Palm Springs for the weekend of Oct. 1 and 2.

The party, which began six summers ago, has but three demands of its revelers: Roll deep, come hot and get thirsty. “The final SummerTramp of 2016 will have all the best parts of her DTLA dragmother,” says Rigal. “Including two giant inflatable waterslides, copious amounts of inflatable toys, bubble machines and a giant pool full of all the beautiful colors of the rainbow. Mario Diaz will be tramping around alongside a cross-section of the best DJs in the scene.”

From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, your wet and wild soundtrack won’t stop. On Saturday: DJs Aaron Colbert, Casey Alva, Derek Monteiro, Jonny Drubel (you remember him from E!’s Rich Kids of Beverly Hills) and Josh Peace. On Sunday: DJs Aaron Elvis, James Cerne, Patrick Ryan, Sindri Salad and Whitney Fierce.


As always, peacocking is encouraged at SummerTramp, a party where elaborate getups are the norm and people-watching is a sport.

Book your weekend-long stay at the host hotel while rooms are available, and use the code SUMMERTRAMP when booking at to score a trampy room rate. For more info on the party, and to purchase merch, head to

“Yes, hitting the beach in the summertime is great. There’s no denying that,” Rigal says. “But sometimes when everyone else is heading west, it’s all about driving toward the desert and venturing to a magical pansexual waterpark weekend paradise. Because let’s face it, summer is not over until she says it’s over.”
