SUMMER IS over half over and your starting to thing about school. Hold on! If you're in the L.A. area, hurry on over to the Staples Center to check out KCON 2015 - LA, a three day festival of K-POP -- full of high-energy artists and workshops. Tickets and information here.
Normally the TGIF FEATURE will showcase an event or artist but this event is HUGE! so we couldn't go further into the weekend without mentioning it, in case you're wondering where your teenagers have disappeared to this weekend.
From their press release:
KCON USA is the original convention dedicated to bring “All Things Hallyu” to the American fan base. With three years of successful concerts and conventions under our belt, we strive to make each year bigger and better than the last, and we hope to exceed last year’s record of 43,000 fans in attendance.
Our goal is to bring even more of what makes KCON the most exciting fan convention in North America.
KCON is the only place you can interact with your favorite stars and fangirl in-sync at spectacular concerts, stimulating panels, and dynamic workshops– only at KCON!
KCON is also becoming a valuable platform for industry professionals to connect with their audience, create content, and expand the Hallyu community. It’s the one place where every element of Hallyu, from food to film to fashion, can be experienced and celebrated.Have a great weekend!!!! Bring earplugs.
The KPop concerts are on Saturday and Sunday with a full slate of entertainment. Here is a sampling of the L.A. lineup:
