BLADE to the Festival in the Desert

The Music Festival in the desert is back, and so are we.

This year, we're offering more flights, more times and more ways to fly than ever. Save yourself the five hour drive into the desert and BLADE between our private lounges at Santa Monica and Thermal airport, right outside of Palm Springs, just minutes to the festival grounds. The flight is just 45 minutes and lands only minutes from the festival grounds.

Simply purchase a seat on a flight, or charter on your schedule. Your festival journey will begin as soon as you arrive at our BLADE Santa Monica Lounge.

Once you land at the BLADE Desert Lounge, you will experience a blend of great sun and chill vibes—thanks to our Partners, enjoy a NÜTRL on your flight to Thermal, a chilled Château La Coste Rosé upon arrival, ensuring you are well taken care of throughout both Festival weekends.

By-the-seat flights start at $995.
