First artists announced for KCON 2018 LA! Superstars Wanna One appearing

KCON USA, the world’s largest Korean culture convention and music festival presented by Toyota, announced today that chart-topping K-pop artists Wanna One and Chung Ha will perform at this summer’s Los Angeles edition on August 10-12 at the Staples Center & LA Convention Center.

This year, KCON Los Angeles will expand the K-Beauty, food, and gaming components of the convention, while offering even more access to K-pop artists as it returns for its seventh year.

KCON has grown exponentially since its launch in 2012, to become the undisputed epicenter for all things Hallyu (a.k.a The Korean Wave). The expansive event, that urges everyone to “Let’s KCON,” garnered more than 128,000 attendees last year between NY and LA combined. KCON 2018 USA will feature 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. Not only does the programming offer insight into Korean pop music, it also covers food, fashion, television, film, e-sports and more.

The New York metro area edition of KCON 2018 is taking place at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on June 23 and 24.
