BLACKPINK Makes History As First K-Pop Group To Headline Coachella
The girl group is racking up high viewership hits on YouTube
BLACKPINK is in the area as the main act to headline the 2023 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. K-pop heavyweights Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé stunned the audience with a spectacular choreography and hit catalog. Holding an hour-long performance, the quartet pleased the crowd with its chart-topping discography: “Pink Venom,” “Kill This Love,” “How You Like That,” “Whistle,” “Lovesick Girls,” and “Forever Young.”
The tracks sent the concertgoers shouting and banging heads back and forth as BLACKPINK filled the stage with nothing short of history. Light sticks were high in the air as BLINK fans accentuated the surroundings with tireless spirits, adding vigor to the atmosphere. The group’s global status was sealed yet again as a yield of almost 3 million viewers marked Coachella’s YouTube live stream.
The first Asian and all-female ensemble to banner the event, BLACKPINK is making a comeback with music icons Bad Bunny, Frank Ocean, and many more. The Puerto Rican performer and the American singer-songwriter are also headliners of the highly-anticipated music and arts festival, and the three frontrunners are all artists of color. Staged in the city of Indio in California, the gathering was a meeting ground for music fans and worldwide fandoms.
