Blackpink makes history as first K-pop group to headline Coachella

Blackpink will be playing along with Jackson Wang, DPR IAN and DPR LIVE.

The deets for Coachella 2023 are finally out. Blackpink will be headlining this year’s edition of Coachella. They will be the first ever K-pop act to do so.

Headlining the festival, together with Blackpink, are Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny and American singer-songwriter Frank Ocean.

Then, they performed a few of their top hits like Ddu Du Ddu Du (2018), Forever Young (2018) and Kill This Love (2019).

Joining them this year are Asian acts like Jackson Wang, DPR Live and DPR Ian.

Wang performed at last year’s Coachella. But it will be DPR Live and DPR Ian’s first time at the valley.
