KCON 2017 Announces USA Dates And Venues


KCON 2017 is coming!

The world’s number Korean pop culture convention is returning to Newark, New Jersey and Los Angeles, California with a two and three day event, respectively.

East coast fans can look forward a two day convention and concert at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on June 23rd and 24th. The last two east coast KCONs have also been at Prudential, so fans are very familiar with the layout of both the concert venue and the outdoor Korean culture market.

On the west coast, fans can look forward to attending in the LA Convention Center on August 18th, 19th, and 20th. Like last year’s event, KCON LA attendees can look forward to a number of fantastic K-beauty, K-food, dance, and e-sports events.

Can’t wait for the summer? KCON Mexico is coming your way and fast! The inaugural KCON in Latin America boasts an impressive two night concert on top of the day’s activities. On Friday, fans can look forward to performances from the talented and sexy girl group EXID, the soulful soloist Eric Nam, SM Entertainment’s newest boy group NCT 127, and the global sensation group BTS. On Saturday fans have the chance to see the adorable Astro, the fun duo Infinite H, one of the strongest up-and-coming boy groups Monsta X, and the wonderfully talented Red Velvet. Tickets for KCON Mexico are still available and run between $50 and $225 US dollars. The show takes place at the Mexico City Arena, located in Azcapotzalco neighborhood. Grab your tickets here!

KCON has expanded all over the world including the UAE, Paris, and Tokyo, but their US-based shows will always feel like home to fans of the event. Don’t miss your chance to see some great shows and meet some wonderful fellow fans!

And stay tuned to K-Soul as we bring you all the details of this year’s #KCON17LA and #KCON17NY.
