BTS' Bang Bang Con is returning in 2021.

The K-pop band took to social media on Saturday (April 10) to announce Bang Bang Con 21. The virtual event is scheduled to take place on April 17 at 3 p.m. KST on the septet's official YouTube channel BANGTANTV.

"BTS concert in your room #BANGBANGCON21 coming soon!" the group wrote on Instagram.

Billboard has reached out to BTS' representatives for further details.

Last April's inaugural Bang Bang Con was a free two-day online concert series featuring live performance footage dating back to 2015. The event arrived after the act's 2020 Map of the Soul tour was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That summer, BTS followed up with Bang Bang Con: The Live, a 90-minute pay-per-view concert. The virtual performance was held June 14, a day after the band's seventh anniversary.

BTS recently dropped the new song "Film Out," a collaboration with J-pop band Back Number that appears as the ending theme in the new Japanese film Signal: Long-Term Unsolved Case Investigation Team. The track will be included on the the septet's next Japanese-language album, BTS, The Best, which is scheduled for release on June 16.
