KCON USA is taking over America, again. KCON NY already dominated the east coast when the convention took over the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, June 23-24. Now, KCON is gearing up for KCON LA which will be heading to the Los Angeles Convention Center and STAPLES Center to bring the celebration of Korean culture to the City of Angels, Aug. 10-12.
KCON is dedicated to bringing “All Things Hallyu” to the American fan base. Hallyu, aka the "Korean Wave," refers to the rise in popularity of Korean entertainment and culture around the world. This year's convention will mark KCON's seventh year of celebrating Korean culture with American fans in the US. The convention showcases various aspects of Korean culture and entertainment; from beauty to snacks and music to dance, there is something for everyone at KCON.
KCON LA will span over a three day period at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Aug. 10-12, with musical performances taking place next door at the STAPLES Center the last two days of the convention. KCON has already begun announcing this year's musical guests, with more expected to be announced before the event. Check out KCON LA details and what K-pop artists are on this year's lineup below:
