Report for duty Friday night at the all-new Commando Military Ball, fueled by ADDICTED ES Collection.  Choose your battle:  Gear up in your best uniform or dress down in commando underwear. Join the troops for a full frontal assault happening from 9pm - 5am at the Renaissance Hotel.  Secure clothes check available or leave them behind in your room.

Saturday, dive headfirst into the fun at WET n WILD Water Park.  Grab your swimsuit and shades, all 21 massive acres are exclusively ours, from 11am - 6pm!  Get swept away by the sounds of Aussie DJs Dan Slater and Wayne G!  We’re making even bigger waves this year with a larger dance floor, party areas, expanded bars and more room to relax and catch some desert rays.  With more than 18 water rides, it’s a day of photo ops to last a lifetime.  Continuous shuttles bring you right to the action with ease.

More than a year in the making - the weekend’s most anticipated moment happens Saturday night as Jeffrey Sanker propels White Party to a completely new level.   It’s a 10-hour dance marathon that begins through a jaw-dropping illuminated entrance.  Feel your senses erupt and your spirit ignite as the beats and rhythm beckon you to the dancefloor.  State of the art lighting and effects shower the crowd in a kaleidoscope of colors and lights.  Mind-blowing custom LED visuals spring to life from every angle.  Meanwhile, a non-stop flow of amazing entertainment and performers keep you captivated throughout the night.

Direct from Tel Aviv, International Mega-DJ/Producer OFFER NISSIM returns to the desert to headline White Party’s main event and lead an incredible DJ line up including Dani Toro and Nacho Chapado.  From the clubs of Tel Aviv, to the top of the charts, Offer Nissim is a force to be reckoned with.   As a producer, he consistently delivers top-selling remixes for superstars such Beyoncé, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Deborah Cox.  As a DJ, his live performances are a spectacle to behold.

On Sunday, it’s time to converge under the desert sky for an afternoon of pure magic at SUNSET T-DANCE.  Warm breezes and hot bodies fill the dance floor at White Party Park with music by DJs Grind and Ralphi Rosario while you soar to new heights on the world-famous White Party Ferris Wheel. 

This year, we crown dance diva and newest “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne “Queen of White Party,” where she will celebrate her coronation with a crowd stopping performance.

And, as the sun sets against the mountains, and more artists take center stage, the excitement will climax with the desert’s largest choreographed fireworks display, set to an exclusive remix from DJ Grind and Toy Armada.

The weekend concludes at the CLOSING PARTY 10pm to 7am back at the Renaissance Hotel.   To keep the night pumping and energized, we’re flying in DJ sensations Sagi Kariv (Tel Aviv) and Danny Verde (Milan) together for the first time anywhere. 

Stay where the boys are!  The center of the action is at our host hotel, the Renaissance Palm Springs.  For more information and reservations visit:  www.jeffreysanker.com

JEFFREY SANKER'S BIOGRAPHY

The MIAMI HERALD dubbed him “the high priest of gay parties.” GENRE MAGAZINE lists him as “Circuit Master.” NEXT MAGAZINE describes him as “the sultan of soirees.” And CIRCUIT NOIZE MAGAZINE simply calls him “the man.”  With every accolade, Jeffrey Sanker further solidifies his name as the premier producer of gay nightlife and entertainment.

In 2014 Jeffrey Sanker received a star on the famed “Palm Springs WALK OF STARS,” aptly placed on the S.E. corner on Palm Canyon Drive and the (very gay) Arenas Road!

Jeffrey Sanker is the founder of LA-based White Party Entertainment, Inc. and creator of such signature events as WHITE PARTY PALM SPRINGS; New Year’s Eve celebrations in Los Angeles, Miami & Rio de Janeiro and the One Mighty Party at Orlando’s Gay Days.

Sanker has been credited by the MIAMI HERALD as being “the father of the modern gay event party.”  Nowhere is this more evident than with Sanker’s trademark extravaganza:  White Party Palm Springs, which has evolved into the nation’s largest gay dance music festival, attracting more than 30,000 attendees from every corner of the globe. 

Sanker’s passion for parties began during the early eighties in New York City.  Working at such legendary locations as Studio 54, Palladium and Private Eyes, he fine-tuned his skills as a promoter and special event producer.  He has hosted parties for numerous celebrities over the years.

Sanker moved to Los Angeles in 1987.  His innovative technique of using landmark venues for trend-setting themed events was credited for breathing new life into the Los Angeles scene.   Since then, he has worked with all of the hottest and trendiest venues and nightclubs in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Miami.        

Superstar entertainment has become a hallmark of Sanker events.  Lady Gaga, Carmen Electra, Jennifer Lopez, Icona Pop, Kelis, Ke$ha, Deborah Cox, Boy George and Lisa Vanderpump, have all graced the stage at Sanker events.  Over the years, Jeffrey has also helped launch the careers of hundreds of new and up & coming performers.

World-class DJs reign supreme over Sanker’s packed dance-floors as well.   His events feature high caliber DJs/producers, including: Dave Aude, the late Peter Rauhofer, Junior Vasquez, Victor Calderone, Freemasons, Manny Lehman, Rosabel and Tony Moran.

Jeffrey has also helped ignite the careers of countless other rising-star DJs by giving them their first big break.  This prompted NEXT Magazine to comment: “the two best friends a DJ can have are Madonna and Jeffrey Sanker.” 

Sanker has proudly produced fundraising events on behalf of numerous charities and community organizations, including Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing (GLEH), The Trevor Project, and Desert AIDS Project.

Sanker currently resides in Los Angeles.  More info at www.JeffreySanker.com
