The weekend will be all about dancing in the sun, seeing friends, making new acquiaintances, and making up for lost time.

Joining already confirmed headliners, DJs and performers are several exciting additions to the talent line-up.

Queen of White Party

The enormously popular festival will be joined by Beverly Johnson, a ground-breaking supermodel whose pioneer status as the first African American woman on the cover of Vogue Magazine paved the way for others in the industry. She will be crowned as the 2022 “Queen of White Party” during a special ceremony on Saturday during the White Carpet arrivals.

“Looking forward to walking that white carpet with everyone and receiving the title of Queen of the White Party!”, said Beverly Johnson.

Special Sunday Big Top Circuit T-Dance Performer

Israeli pop artist and reigning Eurovision winner NETTA has been added to the roster of performers at White Party Palm Springs 2022. With over 100 million video views on YouTube, this internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter has hit #1 on Spotify in over 20 countries with her single “Toy” and continues to tour the world. She is an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and inclusivity, and is a self-described “nasty woman” who inspires people to be themselves.

NETTA is set to put on a powerful performance full of colorful, innovative experimentation during Sunday’s Big Top Circus T-Dance. Her powerhouse vocals are sure to pump up the Sunday afternoon party revelers as they dance the night away.

“With her trendsetting style and legendary accomplishments, Beverly Johnson is the perfect fit for Queen of White Party,” said White Party Global Executive Producer Chris Diamond. “It will be an honor to watch her coronation at this year’s White Party Palm Springs’ return to the desert. I’m also excited to see what NETTA will bring to this year’s Big Top Circus T-Dance. She has the fun and quirky energy that we want to create during this legendary party.”
