Lady Gaga Joining PSY, 2NE1 at Summer Music Festival in Seoul
Lady Gaga will join some of the biggest names in K-pop at a music festival in South Korea this summer. YG Entertainment announced on Tuesday that Gaga will headline day two of the AIA Real Life: Now Festival, slated to take over Seoul's Jamsil Sports Complex on August 15-16.
PSY, BIGBANG, 2NE1 and WINNER are the first Korean artists to be added to the lineup, with more to be announced soon. General admission tickets go on sale April 21.
It's been two years since Gaga performed in Seoul, the largest city in South Korea. At the time, censors deemed the singer's live show as unsuitable for younger audiences and slapped a ban on attendees under 18.
A spokeswoman for the state ratings board told Agence France-Presse that it was "too early" to say whether similar restrictions would be put in place for the August concert. "All we can say now is that our board could make a similar decision as in 2012, if her upcoming concert is seen as unsuitable for young, teenaged audiences," she said.
Gaga has not been shy about her interest in K-pop music, and last month announced that "Bar Bar Bar" girl group Crayon Pop will be the opening act on select dates for her upcoming "Artpop" tour.
