    They did the Coachella Express in 2008, but not in 2009. As the event gets closer, you may be able to coordinate a ride from LA to Indio. This board is a great place to look.

    Are you and your friend planning on camping? If so, getting a ride to Indio and back to the airport would probably work. If you are planning on staying offsite, you might want to consider renting a car. There really aren't many hotels within walking distance.

    You may want to price flying into Palm Springs as well.

    LA to Indio is about 2 hours...even more with traffic.

    And of course I suggest you stay for all 3 days.

    how can you know you only wanna go for one day when you don't know what the lineup is?? seems like a long trip for one day of a three-day festival.. all the aussies from Sydney in our camping group last year had a great time and talk about wanting to come back next year too.

    Come back to these boards next February, and line-up/ticket info will all be here for you. And just like everyone else, I recommend all three days and on-site camping. I promise you, you'll love it.

    Ron, it doesn't matter how she spells Coachella, she's an Aussie with a girlfriend, planning to come to the fest next year! I think Aussie Girls have established themselves at Coachella enough to get away with trivial spelling errors and can probably get away with camping without tents if they wanted to! Hey!
    In any case, Miss Sydney,you can't just come for one day at Coachella! Ask anyone who's ever been. If it's your first time, you'll spend the first day in awe of your surroundings. You'll meet people while you're dancing and hear about the next day acts, and trust me...You'll forget about L.A. and wish you had just gotten the 3 day pass. (L.A. will always be there...This is a once a year deal!
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    If you're a typical Sydney girl I think Sydney might be scary as shit. Should I go to Melbourne instead if I ever head that direction?

    BD I was just saying that because the main point of the thread is Coachella, that is all ... It is like calling LA Las Angelos or Sidnay Australly ... cr****
