The year's biggest event is only a few months away and fans will be delighted to know about the announcement regarding future dates as well as a completely new venue location and changes! More space - more activities - more artists - more FUN!

It was announced earlier this week that KCON is preparing in advance and has revealed the dates for their NY and LA conventions. LA is getting an increase in time, as the event will now be over 4 days long! KCON NY is being moved over from June into July and will be seeing a new spacious interior to play with as it will finally take place in NYC, Madison Square Garden and Javits Center.

KCON New York will take place for the first time in Manhattan with two concerts at the legendary venue Madison Square Garden and a Korean pop culture convention during the day at the Javits Center on July 6th and 7th. KCON Los Angeles will take place August 15th through the 18th and will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center and STAPLES Center.
KCON is the world's largest Korean pop music and culture convention featuring Korean music, Korean food, Korean beauty products and, new this year, Korean lifestyle. KCON will continue to provide an unprecedented amount of access to the artists and influencers that fans cannot experience elsewhere, making KCON a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

Last year's KCON broke records with over 94,000 fans in attendance at KCON LA. KCON 2018 USA closed out the summer with a combined total of 147,000 attendees for its two U.S. events in 2018. KCON 2018 delivered on its signature goal of bringing fans closer to their favorite stars adding in programming that in addition to the concert, gave fans over 20 opportunities per day to engage and interact face-to-face with the biggest performing stars of the weekend. These included the newly added STAR LIVE TALK, a live talk show on the KCON stage, and STAR SQUARE, a once-in-a-lifetime selfie opportunity with the stars. KLUB KCON, a dance night featuring line-up artists before the event kicked off, and ARTISTS ENGAGEMENTS, the ever-popular meet & greet sessions, returned to the convention line-up as well. KCON also debuted SUPER ROOKIE SHOWCASE, featuring up and coming acts, and BEAUTY IT UP where artists shared their beauty secrets.
More information including lineup, ticket sales date and program details will be announced soon. For up to date news follow @KCONUSA and join the conversation using #KCON19NY and #KCON19LA. More info at KCONUSA.com
