KCON LA 2022: Date, venue, tickets and K-pop lineup including Itzy, Enhypen and Ateez


It seems the days of online events being livestreamed and giving that Zoom vibe are over. With the pandemic under control, we are finally resuming concerts, in-person events and world tours. Fans are saving up like crazy as band after band stage world tours like Seventeen, Stray Kids, Monsta X, TWICE, Itzy, TXT, Ateez, NCT, The Boyz and more. We also had the explosive KCON two years after the last offline KCON Thailand in 2019. The premiere of KCON 2022 in Seoul, Tokyo and Chicago generated a lot of hype as fans were ready to see and interact with their favorite idols in person. And now, KCON USA 2022 is back just in time for the convention’s 10th anniversary.

Like VidCon, ComicCon, and DragCon, KCON is an annual convention for K-pop fans and idols launched in 2012 by CJ E&M and Koreaboo to bring K-pop to the United States. It expanded to Japan in 2015 and eventually branched out even further, becoming the K-pop version of Coachella. We had iconic collaborations and scenes while fans got to hang out with K-pop idols. And now KCON is returning to its LA roots in 2022 with an exciting lineup featuring rookie monsters Enhypen and NMIXX along with popular bands like Itzy and The Boyz.
