Hello,

Have wanted to go to Coachella for years now and am possibly in a position to finely do it!

I'm just wondering how I would the ticket delivered to myself and also how to get to the event.

Also any general advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
David

Ticket: Mail

Transportation: Airplane to LAX, a rental car or carpool to Indio.

Advice: Unless you're planning on camping on-site, start looking for hotels/rental houses/campgrounds now. Likely (though unconfirmed) dates are 4/16 - 4/18.

Ticket - You pick it up at the venue (they do NOT post them to the UK).

Okay cool I'll rent a car.

Yeah was planning on doing the campsite (It would be weird not too!). Just seen that you can't take alcohol into the campsite :O Man this is so different to english festivals :P

Thanks if anyone has anymore advice that would be great.

D, Last year was my first and hopefully not last Coachella.

Its so different from UK festivals...its fantastic. Especially the weather.

Print your own tickets before you leave home.
Had a week in San Diego, then hired a car and stayed in a Palm Springs Hotel so we could drive in each day - no travel hassles whatsoever.

I'll be coming from the UK too. I think I'll fly to SF and out of LA. Quite looking forward to this! I wonder how it compares to European festivals like Roskilde. I've not been to an English festival.

i'm sure it's great, but roskilde is the greatest thing ever so coachella has a lot to beat. can anyone who has been to both (sziget or lowlands or something) compare?

i'm actually from melbourne. just haven't lived there in years. kinda miss the music scene, but then again i live in london so i'm not really in a position to complain...

LA is a good 8 hour boring ass drive from SF. Just to warn you.

Well, i haven't been to Roskilde but it's on the agenda some day.

Melbourne, maaaaaate. It's still a great city and continues to be the epicentre of the Australian music scene.

Either Carpool from LA, or get a coach (greyhound) to Indio.
