After a successful stop in the East, KCON USA returns back to where it all started in the Golden State!
KCON USA has already begun its takeover of our country! After a record-breaking attendance of 53,000 fans just last month for the KCON 2018 NY extravaganza of all things Hallyu, the West Coast has been patiently waiting for their chance to catch the Korean Wave! And that time has almost arrived, bringing the trademark half convention, half musical festival to the Staples Center on August 10th through August 12th.
As this annual Korean youth culture fandom event can trace its American roots to Los Angeles, we know that the recent East Coast KCON was just a trial run and many more record-breaking moments are ahead. Last year, more than 85,000 people attended KCON LA 2017. Judging by the rise in attendance on the East Coast, we are due for a record-shattering three days as well. This year’s event dedicated to celebrating the best in Korean entertainment, cuisine, and fashion will highlight the aspect of “Korean Beauty”, and include a special panel just for the LA event entitled “How K-pop Grew Beyond Niche.”
We know that KCON USA is a major global event. When the Korean Wave hits the western side of the world, fans from all over will be flocking to our area to have a chance experience this ever-growing culture on American soil. Thus, whether you are flying into town or a local of the area, the perfect complement to your KCON USA experience is booking a room with us at Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel. Our convenient location next to the Hollywood Burbank Airport ensures that your experience will be comfortable and stress-free. Less than 20 miles from the KCON LA events, let the Marriott be your home base as you ride out the Korean Wave in luxurious comfort and style!
