I'd imagine so. They wont ship your tickets but you collect them from Will call at the Tennis Gardens

Lots of people go every year from Australia, Japan, UK, etc.

Thanks, thats actually what i was wondering about. Was just worried, because its also easier for people from Australia and japan and other places to get Visas. South Africans battle a little, you'd think we all like "Die Antwoord"

I would have to seriously question your interest in Coachella. Everyone knows south Africans all love die antwoord.

Just start the application process for the visa now. They are good for 10 years, so even if you don't go this year for whatever reason at least it's one less thing to worry about when you do decide to go.

I came over from England for 2012, and plan to do the same for 2013. As people have said, its dead easy - the tickets don't get sent out, you just pick them up from the Tennis Club a few miles away from the site. You should definitely do it.

hey PixZee,
we did exactly that this year (2012). Applied for B1 visitor's Visas from the US consulate, bought our tickets online like everyone else and just picked them up at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens on our way in. Easypeasy. And sooooooooo worth it.

Actually ran into quite a few South Africans. Seems big music festivals just attracts us like flies :)

Just shout if you need any pointers with regards to Visas etc.
