White Party Palm Springs, Iconic Jeffrey Sanker Event, To Celebrate 25th Anniversary

Over the past 25 years, Jeffrey Sanker's White Party Palm Springs has become synonymous with mainstream gay culture.

Reportedly the largest gay dance music festival in the world, the White Party Palm Springs played an integral role in launching the careers of pop superstars such as Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, and Icona Pop. This year, Sanker is pulling out all of the stops for the party's 25th anniversary, slated to be a tribute to Cyndi Lauper.

“What began as a gathering for 300 of my closest friends celebrating the rites of spring 25 years ago, has evolved into 30,000 men from across the world coming together and re-defining the meaning of 'DESERT HEAT!’” Sanker said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

This year's White Party will consist of eight massive parties over the course of three days: April 25-28. Check out the video above for a sneak peak and head here for more information.
