    Default An even longer shot.. Any Uk folk going ?

    I'm pretty pumped on going to this thing, but theres alot to sort out. I'm coming all the way from Yorkshire, England.

    Any UKers catching flights over there or anything ?
    Or maybe someone renting cars or anything from the airports over there ?

    I can't drive myself but I'd pitch in with costs.

    Hit me back,

    Sheri .

    Nice .
    I'm from Sheffield, this is going to blow leeds festival out of the water.
    I went to leeds in 05 and it doesn't sounds nowhere near as good.

    You know any cheap flight websites or anything ? I'm kinda hoping to drop on a good deal.. Which airport were you thinking of flying from ? Manchester.

    Alright Sheri, I'm heading over from Sheffield as well.

    If you're a student, or under 26, I got a price from STA travel for £268 flying from Manchester, it was cheaper than any of the London airports.

    BA and Virgin often have deals on though, could maybe get a flight for about £250, but usually it only applies if you fly out that same month or something, so if you fancy chancing it by waiting until april...

    You can get the same price on Virgin Atlantic and Continental to LAX (try expeida.co.uk), Indio's only a few hours from LA, you'd have to get another flight from SFO to LA though, it's a hell of a hike

    Hi all,

    I'm from the UK but live in Sydney now. I went to Coachella last year. It's a bit more sterile than Glastonbury but a whole lot drier and warmer. Great line up this year too and an extra day. I've got my ticket. It will be great. Go!!!

    I'm going to Glasto this year as well

    As a student, really shouldn't be spending this much money. Going to have to put a lot of hours in at work to pay for it all.

    I'm determined to go to this and i'd definitely want to hook up with some other UK folk instead of going on my own if none of my mates can come up with the cash.

    I know a few people that have said they'll be going but whether they will or not is a mystery. I've done my sums and should just manage to afford it. So yeah any other UKers going, we could meet up at the airport or something ? Share info on cheap flights etc, would appreciate it loads !

    Thanks,
    Sheri.

    I'm from Glasgow, and flying out on the 26th, coming back on the 30th is working out about £350-£400, which combined with the 3 day ticket is far too much.

    So now I'm thinking of just flying out on the Saturday, and buying a one day ticket for the Sunday. I MUST see Rage.

    Anyone else have similar travel plans?

    I've also had a look at transport to Indio, and Greyhound run a bus for $25, takes about 3-4 hours.

    Only problem is I can't seem to find any info on getting from the Airport to wherever the hell the bus station is in LA.

    Finally, can anyone who has found cheap fares post links please?

    Yeah we should all help each other out with travel and stuff, as i'm pretty sure most people, like me, haven't got a clue at the moment what to do.

    That sounds goo to me. I searched www.carsupermarket.com and it gave me a good list of flights.

    Anyone staying for longer than the festival ? Maybe a day or two before & a day or two after ? Seems a waste to go to america and leave pretty must straight away ! I wanna see stuff !

    Thanks,
    Sheri.

    Been doing some major research for flights, looked at going from Glasgow;Edinburgh;Manchester and Heathrow, and the thing that's really scaring the shit out of me is the flight times on the way back.
    9am out of LA, but getting back to the airport seems like it could be a hassle.

    Does anyone know if there are overnight buses running from the festival on the last night?

    Im from Sweden but my flight is connecting at Heathrow.
    Not sure if my poor student friends can afford the trip, but I kinda promised myself that if I have to see Rage no matter what, so I HAVE to go
    Sure would be nice to not having to travel alone :>

    If anyone's going wednesday to wednesday the flight times out of LA are ok, but thats if your flying from heathrow. This is what i think me and my mates will be doing, might as wel have a full week if we're going all that way.

    You camping then staying in hotels the inbetween days ?
    I'm kinda looking to do the same thing. Stay a few days before, few days after. Seems a waste to go to the US and only stay a weekend. I'm flying from London now I think, haven't booked my flight or anything yet though.

    Can you share any flight details for those dates ? If so, that's be great :].

    thanks,
    Sheri.
