Jonny-

Palm Springs is a lot warmer than Aberdeen.

If you're using airmiles, Palm Springs or Ontario is closest... if you're paying, Los Angeles should save you loads of money (try also SNA or SAN, Orange County and San Diego).

You'll likely need to drive -- either rent a car or carpool... your best bet for lodging is on-site camping, but otherwise Palm Springs has loads of rooms. If cheap is what you're up for, try www.motel6.com

good luck -- my mates are coming from London... ratm are worth it.

palm springs i think is about 120 miles from los angeles, so 200km about.

palm springs is pretty big, the place i got is 20miles from the actual polo fields where coachella is.

Whats all this crap about finding a place to stay. Camping is half the fun! Seems like either there are limited spots at this festival or you are all a bunch of pansies! Toughen up! Desert or no, camping is the pure essence of a 3 day festival - old scotty you should know that! Although coming from scotland you'll probably burn alive...

On the same boat, but from australia, what do you think about getting there via greyhound or something? Carpooling seems to leave too much to fate for a several thousand dollar trip!

yea, i like camping at festivals in the UK, but i think we're just getting a one day pass, like i say we're only really coming for RATM! surely there will be some sort of coach/bus for palm springs to the festival???
