Coachella: Who are the stars of the legendary desert music festival? | Art News

Blackpink will make history later this year when they become the first K-pop group to hit the world famous Coachella music festival.

Known for hits like “How You Like That” and “As If It’s Your Last,” the four-member South Korean girl group will close out on two Saturday nights in April, with Frank Ocean on Sunday appeared on the main stage.

Also notable is Bad Bunny — the Puerto Rican rapper has been the most listened-to artist on the streaming platform Spotify for the past two years. He will perform at Friday’s event.

The Grammy and Brit Award-winning Ocean was due to perform in 2020, but the event was eventually canceled after multiple rescheduling due to COVID-19 regulations.

Rounding out the lineup is Björk, who will perform on Sunday, while Spanish singer Rosalia, who often goes viral on TikTok, will join Friday’s lineup.

It’s been a good year for British actors, too, with Calvin Harris, Damon Albarn’s Gorilla, Yongbroad and Mercury-nominated Wet Legs also performing.

Idris Elba will appear, as will electro-pop star Charli XCX and rock legend Blondie.

Fans can start getting advance tickets on Friday, with organizers warning that the number of tickets remaining for the first weekend is already “very limited” and considering a second wave of events.

Last year’s headliners included Harry Styles and Billie Eilish, while The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia for Ye (formerly Kanye West), who quit a week before the festival was reported.

The Coachella music festival, held in the Southern California desert, draws an estimated 250,000 people over two consecutive weekends in April.
