Los Angeles may soon host KAMP—first ever-international K-Pop festival. Yes, music festivals may feel far off the radar for the time being as we are still deeply in the midst of quarantine. But plans are being made. We don’t yet know the exact dates or details. But we have been informed that KAMP has set its sights on L.A.’s Banc of California Stadium for some major K-Pop action come 2021.
KAMP kicked off its inaugural event in Asia in 2019. At that event, 20,000 K-Pop fans from all over Asia came out to see acts by groups like Super Junior, NCT127, Momoland, Stray Kids, Chung Ha, Ha Sung Woon, G-FRIEND, AleXa, and Sonnet Son.
Tim Kim, the festival promoter and KAMP Global CEO and founder felt that Los Angeles was an obvious choice for the festival’s next destination.
“Los Angeles is not only the home to entertainment but a major global community that is home to so many different cultures. K-Pop has become a global music language and we felt that there was no better place to start our North American festivals. Most importantly, as an Angeleno, how could I not imagine a K-Pop festival under the beautiful weather of Los Angeles?
When I first envisioned KAMP, I imagined our festival being held in at least 10 major cities in different continents around the world. As we are the first global K-Pop festival, our goal is to bring a true and creative K-Pop experience to fans in all corners of the world.”
In addition to the music, the event will be offering a variety of amenities. Those will include VIP experiences, culture zones offering a variety of food options, and an e-sports/gaming showcase.
Sounds like a good time. Especially now when gathering in the VIP to listen to music is…not happening. Be good to us 2021. We need more concerts in our lives.
