Seventeen, BLACKPINK to join Japan’s summer music festival

February 28, 2019

Two popular K-pop bands, Seventeen and BLACKPINK, will perform at Japan’s annual Summer Sonic music festival scheduled in August in Tokyo and Osaka, the event’s lineup showed Thursday.

The 13-piece boy band will appear at Osaka’s Maishima Sonic Park on Aug. 17, the second day of the three-day festival in Tokyo and Osaka, according to its official website.

The event will run from Aug. 16-18 with performances by well-known musicians from around the world, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Chainsmokers and The 1975.

BLACKPINK will appear on the Tokyo leg on the last day of the festival to follow in the footsteps of the group of Korean artists who performed at the famous annual Japanese festival, including BIGBANG, BoA, Girls’ Generation and BTS.

The two K-pop bands are enjoying enormous popularity in Japan, with Seventeen selling more than 120,000 copies of their Japanese debut album in the first week of its release in May last year.

Seventeen also received two prizes at the 33rd Japan Gold Disc Awards earlier in the week, proving their prominence there.
