Epik High to perform at Coachella

Korean hip hop group Epik High (YG Entertainment)

Korean hip-hop trio Epik High will be performing at popular American festival Coachella Valley Music and Arts.

In an interview with the group released Tuesday, Billboard reported, “Epik High plans to make history at Coachella as the first major South Korean act playing (at) the music festival.”

It is definitely a venue that we always dreamed of performing at,” the group’s rapper Tablo said in the interview. He also urged festivalgoers to come check out their stage, promising to make it worthwhile.

On the following day, Fuse TV mentioned the group’s upcoming performance at Coachella along with that of Guns N’ Roses, while introducing “8 Acts You’ll Only See at 2016 Coachella.”

The channel talked about the group’s success at Austin’s South by Southwest festival and its North American tour in 2015, and said that there would be everything people would expect from a rap concert: high-energy head-banging tunes, moody down-tempos and quirky humor.

The festival will be held in Indio, California, from April 15 to April 24, on Fridays and weekends. Epik High will perform at the Sahara stage at 1:20 p.m. on April 17 and 24. For more information, visit www.coachella.com.
