It was confirmed by the girls’ quartet itself, on their official social networks, that Coachella invited aespa to perform on the main stage of the festival next Saturday, the 23rd. With that, aespa is the first girl group to be a confirmed attraction of the festival main stage in Coachella history.

Prior to aespa, among South Korean groups, BLACKPINK was announced in the event’s line-up in 2019, but on the Sahara stage. Earlier this year, 2NE1 surprised the audience by gathering on the main stage of Coachella, during the show of CL, the festival’s announced artist.
The performance at Coachella will also be aespa’s first major show in the United States, in addition to its festival debut. Prior to that, the foursome’s biggest show had taken place during the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
