Friend had this predicament last year. We packed up everything from the campground before going into the festival on Sunday, which was a major buzzkill in itself. Plus I lost my black bag with contacts, glasses and all toiletries in it. I was not happy. But then we drove straight to Ontario after Rage and I had never felt such exhaustion. The driver had a lot of trouble staying awake and the rest of us were passed right out. I think he totally regretted booking such an early flight.

I don't recommend this method, in summary.

Personally, I think I'd go there after the show and just park in the airport for a few hours. You can usually find a nice quiet corner to sleep in.

That was the scenario I remember last year. Traffic is less than ideal. I'd figure on arriving btwn 4 and 5, which doesn't really leave any sleep time.

Brutal. It will be worth it.

I have a 7am flight on Monday out of PSP. Hopefully that won't be quite as bad, but I'm not looking forward to it.

Yeah, you should probably be at the airport 1.5 hours early...a lot of people will be trying to go through security at the same time, either because they're leaving or because they're headed out of town for business (Monday morning is one of the busiest travel times of the week).

I just checked our flight loads-our flights out of Ontario and Palm Springs aren't even full yet. Shouldn't be too hard to change your ticket to a later flight.
