In 2019 Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé, and Lisa were the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella. Now the global superstars are the first Korean act to ever headline the festival.

“So… let me start off with, four years ago we were invited to perform here for you at Coachella at the Sahara tent and that made a mark in all of our hearts,” said Rosé.

“I must say, this is a dream come true … the reason all four of us are here is because of you.”

The girls opened with their new hit “Pink Venom” then continued to perform fan favorites such as “Kill This Love,” “How You Like That,” and one of their debut songs “Whistle.”

Solo stages

The next part of their set allowed the members to show off their individual talents through their solo songs.

Jennie started it off with her unreleased single “You & Me” which she’s been performing on Blackpink’s tour. This time, she added a new rap verse while strutting on stage draped in diamonds and pearls.

Jisoo performed her new debut single “Flowers” while wearing a red asymmetrical dress made of plastic flowers to match the song.

Rosé went next in a chain metal dress to sing “Gone” and “On The Ground” as she dangled her legs from the elevated stage.

Lastly, Lisa closed this section of their set with an explicit version of her song “Money” while sporting a structured mirrored metal bodysuit.

The finale

The girls came back together to perform “BOOMBAYAH,” Blackpink’s first number one single. The set continued with even more hits such as “Lovesick Girls,” “Shut Down,” and “DDU-DU DDU-DU.”

Blackpink ended the show with the uplifting “Forever Young” as fireworks lit up the sky.

Over 125,000 people were in the crowd at the main stage that night, while millions of fans tuned in online to watch the livestream.
