The annual global K-pop festival has released the artist lineup for its upcoming KCON 2022 Premiere event.
The lineup includes popular boy bands BtoB, Cravity and TO1 as well as girl groups STAYC and Nmixx for performances on May 21 and 22 at the Rosemont Theater in Chicago.
The KCON 2022 Premiere serves as an official precursor to the main KCON 2022, which is set to take place from August 19 to 21 in Los Angeles.
The upcoming event, which will mark the 10th anniversary of the largest fan celebration of Korean culture and music in the world, will return to being in person after two years of being solely virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The inaugural KCON was held in Irvine, California, in 2012 before expanding into more countries across North America, Europe and Asia. Approximately 291,000 fans attended their last in-person event in 2019.
While in-person KCON 2022 Premiere tickets will be available for purchase on KCON’s official website starting April 15, global fans can also tune in virtually through their digital program KCON:TACT.
