I'm 16 so if age applies then that's fine but I'm willing to pitch in $25 for gas money.

I'm trying to get there by Friday (27th) morning before the doors open.

I look 15 and they've never asked for my ID, which is surprising

They don't really check PF. My friend got in fine, than again he looks like a rabbai so maybe that's why. *shrug*

I should say that unless my friend that's going to UCLA decides he's going I wont be driving through there, but I guess it is a possibility because he is a big you know what fan and they will be headlining, but if he really wants to see them that bad i might not bring him just to piss him off haha.

I'm coming over from Scotland for this, looks like i'll be landing at LAX at 14:20 on the Thursday... what do you guys recommend? Only 19 so I assume i'm too young to rent a car...

Contact some of the car rental's at LAX and ask if you can rent something. Wouldn't hurt to try.

Just hit google and it looks like most places are 25, lowest i've seen is 21. Ahwell... so how far is LAX from the site itself? How difficult would it be to use buses to get there?

LAX from the site? I'm not too sure on that but I can tell you it might be a bit tricky to get all the way to Indio. You can mapquest/google local it.

LA to Indio return on the Greyhound for 45 bucks. Doesn't seem unreasonable... haha, this is a real headfuck trying to organise this from however many thousand miles away. It'll be worth it, I have no doubt.

ficklecycle

Indeed it will be worth it. Hope it all works for you.

It's true that pretty much all the major car rental agencies require you to be 21 to rent (25 to rent without surcharges). But there's a sneaky loophole to this: you can rent from U-Haul when you're only 18, even if you're just renting a pickup truck or minivan. Most locations only charge around $20/day, so that's an option to consider if you'd rather not go the public transportation route.

Wow. Smart.

Has anyone who has gone before tell me if there's any way I can get away with sleeping in a car instead of renting a campsite/getting a tent pass? Is there a parking lot or anything near the festival?

They do but it doesn't head there from Union Station.

i slept in my sister's car last year, it was no problem at all other than the fact that you feel disgusting the next morning but its all part of the coachella experience!

FYI LAX to the festival is about a 2 1/2 hour drive assuming there's no traffic but then again you will be in sunny LA.

My girlfriend and I are in Anaheim at Disneyland on April 27th and are looking for anyone carpooling from around Anaheim to Indio. Anybody?

I'm from Australia but me and a friend are going to rent a car at the airport. If all you guys contact me i'll swing by and pick you up on the way to indio. Just leave your name, address and credit card details so I can get the fuel sorted out beforehand :o)

No but seriously, anyone in the LA area (particularly coastal areas good for skimboarding) are welcome to jump a ride.

myself and two humble canadian hombres are arriving at LAX on thursday, hoping to get to the campground around checkin. anybody who has space for three skinny-ish, harmless canadian guys aged 18-22 (and their tent/backpacks) in their vehicle, rental or otherwise would be a hero in my eyes. and obviously reimbursed for our share of rental/gas whatever. so if anybody's up to it send me a message. or if you wanna team up for a shuttle or carpool or something, that'scool too. I just don't wanna leave this up in the air. it'd suck donkey balls to get to LA from toronto and go "... oh shiite. now what?"

Actually, we scored a ride last night in bizarre circumstances, but now we may be able to give one other person a lift. Que serra eh.
