ATEEZ talk about being the first K-pop boy band to perform at Coachella. The boys discussed their preparation and confidence in their performance and how they were inspired by other artists’ sets they watched, including Ice Spice, Tyler, the Creator, Doja Cat and J Balvin.

Tetris Kelly:

Hey, it’s Tetris with Billboard News hanging out with ATEEZ. What’s up? I know it’s been a minute. Being the first ever K-pop boy group to play Coachella, how was it?

San:

It was really hard, but we’re gonna just show ourselves and that’s what we’ve been doing so far. And we are 100% confident about it. It was really cool. It was really cool. It was really an honor to us, and we will do more and more.

Hongjoong:

We just do our things continually. Many, many good artists and many good K-pop artists … go to huge festivals continually.

Tetris Kelly:

And then I heard you over there talking about Ice Spice — did you guys get to go see anybody else’s set while you were there?

Hongjoong:

Yeah, some of our members went to Ice Spice’s set, but it was crazy. We were really surprised with every moment.

San:

A few members watching Coachella at other artists’ stage and they were really crazy. J Balvin and Doja’s and The Rose, we really learned from them.

Hongjoong:

Yes, I think Tyler, the Creator and Doja and J Balvin in the three stages gave me big inspiration. So after that, I just make music after going back to the hotel.

Tetris Kelly:

Oh, I love it. You were right back to work! Yeah, that’s cool. Have you guys been on TikTok lately? Because you’re all over TikTok.
