BST Hyde Park returns for 2023 and today announces that the global superstars and unstoppable K-pop trailblazers, BLACKPINK will join the capital’s biggest festival bill on Sunday 2nd July

Once again making history, BLACKPINK will become the first K-pop act to headline a major UK festival. The South Korean quartet join previously announced Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Billy Joel and P!nk on the BST Hyde Park billing for their London festival debut. 

Last month, tickets sold out instantly for BLACKPINK’s two upcoming shows at the O2 Arena, and next summer their loyal army of fans, BLINKS, will help light up the world’s greatest outdoor venue, a stage befitting of the planet’s brightest and biggest artists.

Over the course of their 6 year career, BLACKPINK have released 2 studio albums, 3 EPs and have collaborated with fellow global superstars, from Lady Gaga to Cardi B, Dua Lipa and Selena Gomez

Comprised of members JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA, the group have earned acclaim by becoming the #1 most subscribed act on YouTube (with over 80M) and earning their status as the most-followed girl group on Spotify. They’ve continued to smash their own boundary-defying records with the release of BORN PINK, debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 in the US, the highest-charting album by a girl group in over a decade. BORN PINK also reached #1 on the UK Official Album Charts, the first ever K-pop girl group to achieve this.

With their countless record breaking hits, BLACKPINK have taken the world by storm. Single ‘SHUT DOWN’ from latest album BORN PINK launched at #1 on the Billboard Global Charts, and previously released single ‘Pink Venom’ made history as the biggest release this decade by a female group or solo artist. At over 269M views, the record-breaking ‘Pink Venom’ was YouTube’s biggest debut of 2022, amassing 90.4M views within the first 24 hours.
