KCON 2019 New York just ended after a two-day extravaganza mixture of convention activities and concerts at Manhattan’s Javits Center and Madison Square Garden, and now KCON 2019 Los Angeles has finalized its lineup.
KCON 2019 LA will mark the first Stateside performances of ITZY, LOONA, and N.Flying, three high-profile newer groups that have received a lot of love both from international audiences and Korean listeners.
The six acts will join AB6IX, ATEEZ, Chung Ha, IZ*ONE, Mamamoo, Momoland, Nu’EST, Oneus, Stray Kids, and Verivery at the event, which is set to take place between August 15-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center and Staples Center. Over the four-day period, the 17 K-pop acts will appear at both the headlining concerts as well as convention events, where they will get up close and personal with their local fans.
Several acts are making repeat appearances after performing at KCON 2019 NY, but there are many fresh acts attending the LA event. Along with ITZY, LOONA, and N.Flying, Chung Ha, Mamamoo, Momoland, Oneus, Stray Kids are appearing at a KCON USA event for the first time this year in Los Angeles.
Update: On July 10, Everglow’s agency Yuehua announced via social media that the girl group would be unable to attend KCON 2019 LA due to visa issues, which also saw resulted in the act not being able to attend KCON NY.
