BLACKPINK became the first girl group and Korean act to headline Coachella after they delivered an energetic performance at the festival on Saturday, April 15.
The Korean-Pop Girl Group consists of members Rosé, Jennie, Jisoo and Lisa. BLACKPINK recently became the best-selling Korean female act in US History*. The group has achieved many records since their debut in 2016.
The group first performed at Coachella back in 2019, where they delivered a wild performance - with crowds jumping and singing along to some of their greatest hits.
During their fantastic Coachella show, BLACKPINK’s Rosé thanked the fans.
"The reason all four of us are here is because of you guys,” she said.
Throughout their almost two-hour show, the group performed some of their biggest hits like Pink Venom, How You Like That, Kill This Love, and more.
The crowd was wowed, with BLACKPINK attracting one of the largest crowds Coachella had ever seen - and now BLACKPINK’s 2023 Coachella set is set to become one of the most watched sets in the festival's history as it is predicted to bring in 250 million livestream watchers on YouTube, according to TechRadar.

Immediately after their performance began, BLACKPINK trended worldwide on Twitter. The hashtag #BLACKPINKatCoachella reached over three million tweets in just as many hours.
Many fans and non-fans took to twitter to express their excitement and praise the group.
“From the Sahara stage to the main stage,” @LEGENDHARMONY wrote - referring to the group’s first set in 2019 where they performed at the Sahara stage of Coachella.
“If Shakira and Beyoncé had a child it would be Rosé,” @rsdolI wrote.
The four quartets will return to the Coachella stage this coming Saturday to headline the festival and wow the audience again.
