Asia Innovations Group’s (AIG) Uplive, a global leader in video social entertainment, is proud to have presented the White Party Global Palm Springs, an annual multi-day music festival and the largest party on the US LGBTQ party circuit. This year’s headliner, legendary pop star and Grammy Award winner Paula Abdul, delivered a showstopping performance, featuring some of her #1 hits and world class choreography. The event was streamed live exclusively on Uplive. By expanding the audience beyond the 30,000 attendees in Palm Springs to hundreds of thousands of viewers around the globe, Uplive celebrated the LGBTQ community worldwide.

The event was held on Sunday, May 1st, in an outdoor stage constructed across from the Palm Springs Convention Center. It was the first in-person White Party Palm Springs since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and also the first since the passing of the founder and face of White Party Global, Jeffrey Sanker, who first launched the event in 1990. Over the years, the party has featured iconic performances from some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande.

In addition to Abdul, Uplive provided exclusive streaming coverage of DJ sets and live performances from Raye, Netta, and Karina Kay. Attendees in Palm Springs had the opportunity to visit the Uplive booth, decorated by Uplive banners and a beautiful Ferris wheel, to download the app, receive free gifts, and commemorate the event with pictures against a spectacular backdrop. By downloading the app, attendees were also entered for the chance to win grand prizes, including a 3-night stay at Hilton Palm Springs.
