Ariana Grande is headlining Coachella, but BLACKPINK will make their US debut in the desert as well

With a desire to branch out into other markets, BLACKPINK is the first female K-pop group to play Coachella.
I love that BLACKPINK is performing at this year's Coachella festival in April. From the list of participating artists, it also looks like they are in the top tier billing, just below the main headliners. That's pretty cool for a female K-pop group looking to extend their fan-base in North America!

I've read that Coachella founder, Paul Tollett, went to South Korea last year to personally invite them to be part of the lineup. I was recently able to track down a copy of their album, Square Up. Bands like BabyMetal and BLACKPINK shake up the traditions of their genres. It's nice to see them be recognized and invited to expand in the US and other territories.

Are you going to Coachella this year?
