aespa is ready to take it to the "next stage."
K-pop's rapidly growing group has been confirmed to perform on weekend 2 of the 2022 Coachella Music Festival. They will be performing on the main stage Saturday, April 23rd. After Blackpink's 2019 appearance and 2NE1's surprise reunion at 88rising this year's set, Coachella marks the third time that a K-pop band has performed there.
The foursome of KARINA, WINTER and GISELLE, (NINGNING, WINTER, GISELLE, and GISELLE) have been busy since their debut in late 2020. They released their first EP, Savage. Their title track reached No. 20 on the Billboard 200, which is the highest position for a Kpop girl group's debut on U.S. charts.
Coachella will mark the group's debut performance live in America. This gives a few lucky North American fans the opportunity to witness the performers in person.
aespa was part of our 2021 roundup, which included 10 K-pop acts that dominated the year and our 2022 list 15 Rising Artists to Look Out For.
