Yo, K-Pop fans. We have some faboosh news for you.
KCON, the largest annual fan celebration of all things Hallyu, has revealed that the third annual convention will feature a free marketplace with vendors from around L.A. and a free outdoor stage.
KCON 2014 also revealed its program schedule for this year's two day convention, taking place August 9 and 10 in Downtown Los Angeles.
Building on last year's highly successful event at the Los Angeles Memorial Arena, KCON 2014 will return with a programming slate double the size and more varied than ever.
In addition to two star-studded K-pop concerts --up from one in 2013—along with special guests and a new program of panels and workshops, KCON 2014 will add a slew of first-time features to the convention. These include:
A free market and outdoor stage, which will showcase local artists along with vendors from the L.A. area including the "Taste of KCON," serving up some of the best food from K-Town.
Huge K-Drama appearing at KCON as special guests.
An E-sport exhibition match with professional League of Legends players.
Opportunities to meet the top YouTubers from Asia's #1 multi-channel network – Creator Group.
Anyone in L.A. headed to KCON next month?
