    Default Any other Brits travelling to see Rage?...

    Being a HUGE rage fan I simply had to obtain tickets, although it wasn't easy (since when do country drop down menu's use 'Great Britain' and what the schwod is 'will call'??!)

    Anyhoo, totally psyched, the other band line-up's ain't too shabby either, would be great to know of any other rage fans making the distance over the pond to camp and rock out....

    Yep, I'm coming from UK to go see RATM!

    That annoyed me as well with the Great Britain drop down bit, took me like 5 mins to finally figure out it was Great Britan, and by that time had to rebook my tickets because it had timed out!

    It looks like i'm gonna be goin it alone and camping for the whole time i'm there, hoping it's easy to make friends there for a bit of company as i hate being a loner :-(

    Well I booked mine up a long time ago. I stay at the same hotel in Palm Springs every year, and I get a discount there now, so it's less than £30 a night.

    Which airport are people flying to, I was set for flying to LAX and then getting the greyhound to Indio because it works out to be fairly cheap, but i've now heard that the Greyhound is 20 or so miles form the LAX airport, and it doesn't take you straight to the festival, meaning more complications of how to get the greyhound, and the festival.

    So I think i'm gonna just spend that extra bit of money to fly to Palm springs, and get a taxi from the airport straight to the festival entrance. Is anyone else gonna be taking the palm springs option?

    Yea thats what I'll be doing too, just seems the sensible option.

    Which company would you be flying with? Cheapest I've seen is with American Airlines i think, and it's a 15hr Journey.

    I just bought my ticket and 2 of my friends will be doing the same tonight. So thats 3 more brits coming over for rage. The other bands are good but i wouldnt have decided on coming over had it not been for rage.

    Still not sure of flight plans yet. We are gonna sit down and go through all the viable options this week and research into which one seems the most affordable and least effort. Any people who have made the journey before feel free to give me your opinion on the travel side of things.

    Cool Re: Any other Brits travelling to see Rage?...

    Yes i certainly am!!!! me and two mates are flying from england to california on the 25th of april just to see rage!!! I rekon the rest of the festival will kick-ass we got the chillis to look foreward to, ive seen em once before and they are pretty shit-hot! i remember a few years ago me and a few mates were discussing how much we'd pay to see rage reunited and we all said we'd pay over a grand.....now i'd never of thought that dream would come true and now it has, i was so exited when i found out the news i nearly cried!!!! It has to be done i saw that they where playing and i thought fuck yeah im there!!! its costing a fair bit, but every penny shall be worthit!!!! I Can't wait i could barely believe that they were reuniting but when i saw it on the official site i just had to book tickets!!! I've found a return flight to cali and back for £315 on americanairlines.com for those of you unsure about flying arrangments. COME ON BRITISH RAGE FANS LETS SHOW CALIFORNIA HOW TO ROCK, COS WHEN RAGE COME ON THERE'LL BE A SHIT LOADA ROCKIN TO DO!!!!!

    Yeah flying over from london for rage pretty much! will be the best money i've ever spent. Anyone who's going from london airports (think i'll probs go via gatwick) message me. i'm going into palm springs the night before the festival begins. if anyone knows how to get from there to the festival, let me know at vodkalix@hotmail.com add me on msn or just e-mail will be great. also, when is the opening and closing of teh campsite? because i cant be arsed sleeping on the street!

    I'm going for Rage! Me and my cousin are coming from London.
    The whole will call thing is nuts, I'm a bit apprehensive about traveling thousands of miles without a ticket... but fingers crossed no ticketing problems.
    Oh and yeah.. moan/whinge about Great Britain, sometimes it's England, sometimes UK, and sometimes they would place "common" countries at the top.

    i quite like the wii call thing, think of it this way do you really want your ticket to be posted to you and get lost or not arive in time, or just go the the box office and pick them up much safer just remember to bring a passport, print out of the ticket conformation email, and the card they where bought with (or a photo copy of it) phone ticket master in la if you have any questions 0012134803232

    Me and my sis are coming from Kent, im mainly intrested in seeing Rage, but theres plenty of other bands/ artists who are really gona make this festival kick ass! I think a British rage camp is deffently in order, i say we all go Glasto style and show these Americans how to party!

    I got my plane tickets from travelsupermarket.com, they compare prices so you can find the cheapest flights, im flying to Ontario on the Monday before the fest, cant remember if im going from Gatwick or Heathrow though!

    Does anyone know any details about renting cars? I wana get a Cadillac.....
