BLACKPINK at BST Hyde Park “It’s a dream come true”

BLACKPINK once again proved their true value as the world’s top girl group by splendidly decorating the “Hyde Park” stage.

BLACKPINK successfully completed the stage at the “Hyde Park British Summer Time Festival” (hereinafter referred to as “Hyde Park”) in London, England on July 2nd (local time). Following “Coachella” in the US last April, they left another meaningful mark by becoming the first K-pop artist to headline the UK’s top music festival.

“Hyde Park” is a festival where world-class pop stars and music fans gather and enjoy regardless of genres such as rock, hip-hop, electronic and R&B. Even though it was their first appearance, BLACKPINK attracted 65,000 people (based on BBC) and sold out, proving their wide popularity and strong ticket power.


Appearing amidst the heat that filled the scene, BLACKPINK started with “Pink Venom”, “How You Like That” and “Pretty Savage”. Then, from the hit song medley to the solo stages that maximizes 4 members’ charms, an overwhelming live performance with strong band sounds unfolded, raising the audience’s adrenaline.

In particular, BLACKPINK’s unrivaled stage presence and relaxed stage manners shone.


The members led the atmosphere by interacting with the audience, such as freely moving around the stage and handing microphones to the audience. Music fans responded with swaying waves of pink lightsticks and exploding singalongs, raising the scene’s temperature to the fullest.

The high-quality stage production that matches BLACKPINK’s status as a global artist doubled the immersion level. Special effects integrated with YG’s performance know-how, such as sensuous graphics, colorful lighting, firecrackers, fog and confetti, harmonized and satisfied the five senses.

BLACKPINK, who ran nonstop for about 90 minutes, thanked music fans for their support. The girls expressed their overwhelming feelings, “We’re absolutely honored to perform here at Hyde Park. It’s a dream come true.


After the festival, influential foreign media outlets focused on BLACKPINK’s performance. BBC said, “BLACKPINK made history. Now they are one of the biggest groups in the world beyond K-pop.” NME evaluated, “The Hallyu wave has yet to make its mark on the country’s music festivals, but all that could change with BLACKPINK’s headline performance at London’s BST Hyde Park.

Meanwhile, BLACKPINK is conducting “BLACKPINK WORLD TOUR [BORN PINK]”, which attracts about 1.5 million people. After holding an encore concert in Paris (France) on July 15th (local time), they will move to Hanoi (Vietnam), New Jersey, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles (the US).
