Teen Top & AOA Join KCON 2015 New York Lineup
Almost a month after its first two artists were announced, KCON's inaugural New York festival gets a new pair of performers joining the bill: Teen Top and AOA are the latest confirmed artists for the growing festival.
The boy band and girl group added to the previously announced Girls' Generation and VIXX at the Prudential Center-based fest. AOA will also perform and meet fans at the Los Angeles date of KCON a week earlier, making them the first artist confirmed for both dates.
Coincidentally, both Teen Top and AOA dropped new singles on June 22, with the former returning with the zippy "Ah Ah" while the latter embraced EDM on "Heart Attack."
Teen Top last hit the Billboard charts with their emotional hit "Missing," which peaked at No. 14 on the World Digital Songs chart. The boys are essentially KCON veterans at this point with KCON 2015 marking their third visit. The sextet also held a four-date U.S. tour in early 2014.
Meanwhile, AOA made their U.S. Billboard chart debut last year when their slinky hit "Like a Cat" bowed at No. 9 on World Digital Songs.
Tickets for the New York's KCON date go on sale this week with more artists are expected to be announced beforehand. Check out the full KCON lineup below as of press time:
