On Saturday, March 29 tickets for the upcoming KBS LA K-Pop Festival will be distributed online through Ticketmaster, with a surcharge. While admission for the April 12 event is free, utilizing Ticketmaster will help to solve some of the logistical issues that could have been created through the use of other methods. Tickets will be released at 10AM PST on March 29.

The LA K-Pop Festival will be one of the largest K-Pop festivals in North America, with an estimated 100,000 people in attendance. Some of the hottest acts in K-Pop will be performing at the festival including INFINITE, SHINee, 2PM, CNBLUE, SISTAR, Girl's Day, Dynamic Duo, Lena Park, Kim Taewoo, musical prodigy Song Sohee, and trot vocalist Seol Undo. The star studded event is being held in celebration of 111 anniversary of Korean immigration to the United States. The LA K-Pop Festival is a joint production of KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) and the Korean American Federation of Los Angeles (KAFLA), highlighting the best of the Hallyu Wave.
In 2011, KBS held a free K-Pop festival in New Jersey conjunction with the 29th Korean Festival. In this instance, ticket distribution occurred at businesses such as H-Mart leading to lines of fans which exceeded the amount of tickets on hand. Fans who wished to attend the 2011 festival who were out of the ticket distribution area also faced scalpers who charged excessive fees for what were supposed to be free tickets. It is nice to see that KBS has taken measures to protect fans who are willing to travel to see their favorite acts at the LA K-Pop Festival by utilizing Ticketmaster.
The LA K-Pop Festival will be held at the LA Memorial Coliseum with the festival beginning at 10AM. The concert will begin at 6:30PM.
