COACHELLA

Probably the most hyped-up and exciting music festival in the world, Coachella is the one festival you'd need to go to at least once (remember #Beychella in 2018?).

In 2019, the headliners include Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, and Ariana Grande. Another reason to join the merriment is that there are many Asian reps performing in the 2019 edition, including Blackpink, Hyukoh and Jambinai from South Korea; as well as Japanese electro-pop girl group Perfume.
