What: KCON LA is back this summer to connect even more fans, artists, and industry professionals for an unforgettable weekend celebration of K-pop and K-culture. KCON is the world’s No.1 K-culture festival, and the Los Angeles convention is their flagship event. It is poised to be the biggest and best KCON LA yet this year.

This year, KCON returns with an expanded, 3-day show experience with full scale, which also means an extended and even more star-studded artist lineup. Show attendees can enjoy various performances, including collaborative stages, fan-engaging events, and the return of the fan-favourite DREAM STAGE.

This year’s KCON LA will have more fan-engaging programs, upgraded panels, and workshops involving more artists. The convention portion of the weekend will reflect 2023’s theme, “BE A KCONer.”

The convention area will feature various “missions” to take attendees on a journey through the world of K-culture. Fan favourite panels and workshops like DANCE ALL DAY will return better than ever with a space at the convention to film short-form videos of the choreography they learn in the workshops, allowing KCONers to enjoy KCON to the fullest.

After debuting at KCON JAPAN 2023, “SHOWCASE: NICE TO MEET U” will come to KCON LA to showcase K-pop artists and new performances. As KCON continues to serve as a platform for K-pop artists and new acts to meet their global fans, the showcase will bring the artists to their fans for sessions filled with closer-than-ever interactions.

KCON LA 2023 will be presented by Samsung Galaxy as the title sponsor, ensuring a richer and more exciting experience for K-Culture fans by showcasing brand experiential zones and various artist collaboration content.

K-pop is one of the biggest and most talked-about trends in the U.S. music scene today, and for 11 years, KCON has been a driving force. Globally there were 7.8 billion K-pop tweets in 2021, and today there are more than 200 million fans worldwide. The K-pop events market is a $8.1 billion industry as of 2021, estimated to reach $20 billion by 2031.
