K-pop girl group aespa to perform at New York City’s mega-festival

SEOUL-- South Korean girl group aespa will perform at The Governors Ball Music Festival 2023, a major annual outdoor music festival in New York City, the group's agency said Wednesday.

It will become the first K-pop act to perform at the festival, according to SM Entertainment. This year's event will be held at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens from June 9-11, featuring acts from a wide range of genres, including electronic, indie, rock, rap and hip-hop, with Lizzo, ODESZA and Kendrick Lamar as headliners.

The Korean quartet will perform on the main stage on the second day of the festival.
