KCON already dipped its toes back into US soil with its successful Premiere events in Chicago in May, but the convention/concert mega-event is diving in fully, returning with the wildly popular LA stop. Just like previous years, KCON 2022 LA Presented by Toyota will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center with the concert portion at Crypto.com Arena (formerly Staples Center) from August 19th through 21st. As KCON is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, the lineup was highly anticipated and hasn’t disappointed yet- the first set of headliners were announced to be CRAVITY, ENHYPEN, ITZY, NMIXX, STAYC, THE BOYZ and WJSN.
KCON has been held in countries around the world in the 10 years since its inception, including stops in Mexico, Australia, Japan, Thailand and more. During the pandemic, KCON celebrated virtually with its ‘KCON:TACT’ events, giving fans a chance to still see their favorite K-pop artists perform.
Los Angeles will see the return of ITZY, CRAVITY, STAYC, NMIXX and THE BOYZ to KCON’s US stops, with ENHYPEN and WJSN appearing for the first time. Stay tuned to KCON’s social media for more information and to see further announcements, or visit www.kconusa.com/la.
