Published January 31, 2024

The South Korean music sensation Stray Kids is poised to make impressive headliner appearances at two major European festivals this summer, ready to capture the hearts of audiences in Milan, Italy, and London, UK. This would mark a historic moment as it's the very first time a K-pop boy group has been slated to headline these esteemed festivals, according to the band's agency, JYP Entertainment.

Stray Kids' Festival Debut

Stray Kids will have their first festival performance at Milan's I Days on July 12, followed by a show at the British Summer Time Hyde Park in London on July 14. The Milan festival is known for its high-profile acts, and this year's lineup includes notable artists such as Metallica, Doja Cat, Lana Del Rey, and Bring Me The Horizon. Meanwhile, details about the supporting acts for the London festival are still to be announced. Stray Kids' inclusion has been welcomed with excitement, with event organizers labeling the eight-member group as 'South Korean megastars.'

Notable Achievements and Future Plans

Prior to this announcement, Stray Kids made history last week in Paris by performing at a charity concert, which was hosted by France's First Lady Brigitte Macron. This event also marked a first for a K-pop boy band. In related news, Jungkook of BTS has maintained a presence on the Billboard 200 for his solo album, which has charted for 12 consecutive weeks. Additionally, boy band Highlight is gearing up for a comeback with a new album scheduled for a spring release. The year 2023 will be monumental for them as they celebrate their 15th anniversary since their debut. Moreover, K-pop veteran BoA has been appointed as a producer for the upcoming debut of NCT's final subunit, NCT Wish, which is highly anticipated by fans across Korea and Japan.
