KCON USA, the world’s largest Korean culture convention and music festival, announced its return at SXSW 2018 in Austin, Texas. The seventh edition of KCON USA will run this summer in the New York metro area on June 23-24 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, and in Los Angeles on August 10-12 at STAPLES Center & LA Convention Center. The festival will continue to be the leader in spreading Korean pop culture to new and existing fans, with its star-studded concerts and convention expanding this year to include additional K-beauty and esports offerings. Angela Killoren, COO, CJ E&M America made the announcement during a SXSW panel entitled "How K-pop Grew Beyond Niche."
More than 128,000 fans came out to experience KCON USA in 2017 – the most in the history of the event since it launched in 2012. This year’s KCON USA will continue the tradition of providing unprecedented access for American fans to a line-up of A-list concerts, celebrity meet and greets, as well as workshops and panels that cover every aspect of Korean culture and entertainment. The programming does not stop at music, with food, fashion, television, film, esports and more playing important roles in the bi-coastal event. This year, KCON will expand the K-Beauty component of the convention bringing in brands normally inaccessible to U.S. consumers. Participants will be announced in the coming months.
