KCON 2022 LA will celebrate its 10th anniversary, blending K-pop and K-culture into a singular K-POP utopia, ‘POPPIA,’ which is the title for this year’s visual theme. The event will include brand new experiential content where attendees can become K-pop stars themselves by participating in dance competitions and global auditions, on top of original fan favorite programs. It will be carried out as a hybrid event that encompasses both in-person and virtual to make sure that fans across the world can all join the fun.
The concert and meet & greet line-up will be revealed starting mid-June. More details will be available at www.kconusa.com/la.
"We are excited to showcase a revamped ‘KCON’ especially as this year marks the 10th anniversary,” remarked Don Kim, General Manager of Live Entertainment Business at CJ ENM. “From our very first KCON in 2012 to the most recent ‘KCON 2022 Premiere’ held in Korea, Japan, and the U.S. in May, KCON has become the signature K-culture festival. KCON 2022 LA will be the first to present a digital hybrid KCON, where fans from all around the world can join in on the festivities both in-person and virtually. “
First held in 2012 in the U.S., KCON’s growth has married the spread of K-pop and K-culture throughout the world. The event has amassed millions of fans across nine cities/regions including North America, Europe, Asia, and more. From its first event that attracted 10,000 visitors, KCON has seen an incredible growth gathering 291,000 attendees in 2019 (the last in-person event). During the pandemic, the event went virtual with 'KCON:TACT,’ which saw more than 22 million K-pop fans tune in over the last two years.
Meanwhile, ‘KCON 2022 Premiere’ held in May attracted more than 6 million participants across 171 territories.
