KCON USA Is Returning to NYC and LA: See the 2018 Dates for the K-Pop Festival
Get ready, U.S. K-pop fans: KCON USA is bringing their Korean music and culture festival back to the States this summer!
During the "How K-Pop Grew Beyond Niche" panel at SXSW on Thursday (March 15), the organizers behind the event, CJ E&M, announced that KCON will return to both the East Coast and the West Coast for its seventh year, offering attendees access to Korean food, panels, products, culture and, of course, K-pop performances.
KCON NY will hit Newark, NJ's Prudential Center the weekend of June 23 and June 24, while KCON LA will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on August 10-12.
Billboard reports that in 2017, KCON saw more than 128,000 attendees turn out for the two events, and that 2018's installments will "see an added focus on Korean beauty."
