MUST HIT: Desert Tea 2013 - White Party Weekend

White Party weekend is approaching — March 29 - April 1, 2013 — and one of the most talked-about Palm Springs events during that three-day party festival is Desert Tea at the Pool. This year's sun-soaked event will be held March 30, and it returns once more to The Sagura Palm Springs.

Desert Tea was created by The Royalty Group, which includes popular Los Angeles promoters Justin David and Rob Dorman, along with TRG partners Jeffrey Kurt Thompson, and Pancho Mabante. This alternative option for guys in the desert is not an official WP event, but it's quickly become the most popular place to be on Saturday.

The reason is simple: Desert Tea harkens back to the classic tea dances of yesteryear. It's all about enjoying the outdoors, socializing, and dancing to strong vocal music that everyone can recognize. It's a perfect backdrop for guys of all looks and styles, and the friendliness at this party is truly amazeballs. It's an event for everyone, from party boys to regular guys looking to enjoy the excitement of a pride or circuit weekend, but without the cost, pressure, or hangovers that come from attending the formal evening events.

Check out our slide show from last year's Desert Tea below, but get all the important details here first!

TICKETS: This year's party is $30 presale, $40 on the day of the event. Buy your tickets here.

SPINNING: The fabulous DJ Dawna Montell, who always has the crowds dancing with their hands in the air as resident DJ at The Abbey West Hollywood, is opening the day. International DJ and producer Tracy Young from Miami is headlining the event and will knock the party into orbit.
