KCON announced today the dates and locations for its 2020 festivities. For KCON USA, KCON New York will return to the Javits Center for the second year in a row from June 12 to 14. KCON Los Angeles will return to its home at the LA Convention Center from August 27 until August 30.
As always, KCON 2020 will provide their signature, unparalleled amount of access for fans to engage with artists through programs like Artist Engagements, Star Square, Star Live Talk, and artist booth visits, while also immersing themselves in every aspect of Korean culture including food, beauty, lifestyle, drama, movies and more.
KCON USA is just two stops for the worldwide series that also revealed dates for all of its 2020 events. KCON will return to Tokyo, Japan, April 3 through 5 at Makuhari Messe, and Bangkok, Thailand, September 26 and 27 at Impact Arena & Exhibition Center.
KCON USA enters its ninth year of bringing the ultimate Korean culture fan experience to the U.S. Since the festival’s inception in 2012, KCON has seen tremendous growth in attendance. Last year, KCON USA closed out the summer with over 158,000 attendees, breaking its previous attendance record. KCON LA expanded to four full days for the first time in 2019 as demand for tickets boomed. Over the years the star-studded concerts have featured a combination of the top names like BTS, MONSTA X, TWICE and rising stars. Last year, breakout acts included ATEEZ and ITZY.
Mnet, a leading global entertainment network part of CJ ENM, and the organizer of KCON, is expanding KCON into more cities to further its core goal of giving fans around the world more access to the best in K-pop music and Korean culture.
Ticket on sale dates as well as concert lineups will be announced in the coming months. For more information and the latest KCON USA news, fans can visit www.kconusa.com and follow @KCONUSA on Twitter and Instagram, where more information will be rolled out.
