Honestly BOYNEXTDOOR definitely have the right Vibe for Coachella and they are super strong live… but if I had to travel it would really be for TXT… I think their latest songs would be incredible on the Coachella stage.

I'm not saying that we shouldn't send recent groups... but seriously recent groups?! Sserafim was not enough of an example for you to understand that it is better to send talented groups who have experience of big stages and therefore at least a minimum of seniority?! Anything serious

Viburnum 76

The bands given are very good, but they don't have enough stage experience yet. Personally, I would have rather chosen groups like ATEEZ, EXO, NCT 127, STRAY KIDS, ENHYPEN, SEVENTEEN, SHINEE, and for the girl groups DREAMCATCHER, RED VELVET, G-(I)DLE, MAMAMOO. Well, that's only my opinion

Yunna

You're right. These bands are good, but have no experience of big events and big stages, for some, they haven't even done a concert yet where they had to hold a show for several hours. It's too cool to send them to Coachella.

I would like to have ATEEZ, STRAY KIDS, SEVENTEEN, BABYMONSTERS, ITZY, and of course I want to see IU participate too think about her

Betty

Stray kids! They set the stage on fire from the first second. With their multiple talents, they have reached a very high level

k-pop2772

I am happy that he finally recognizes the talents of the 5 gen in particular babymonster, riize and kiss of life

We are one

Before all these groups (who have not yet toured or who do not have enough experience on stage) I would rather have seen G idle, Stray kids, NCT, Red Velvet and even TWICE

Nani

Straykids and seventeen would be amazing at coachella

Remark

Carrément!

Titice

Soul

I agree about Babymonster and Kiss Of Life but I would have added (G)i-dle anyway
