GFRIEND will be making their second straight appearance at KCON this year.
Following the initial lineup announcement of TWICE and CNBLUE attending KCON New York, it was just announced that GFRIEND will also be joining the convention. This is GFRIEND’s second time appearing at KCON as they attended KCON LA in 2016.
K-Pop fans on the east coast will be delighted to see GFRIEND bring their talents and hit songs to their side of the United States. KCON New York will be held on June 23 and June 24 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey

KCON is the largest K-Pop Festival in the world and has branched off since its inception to include several cities throughout the world. KCON was created by Koreaboo’s founders in 2012 after approaching CJ E&M and Mnet with the idea to create a festival and convention for international K-Pop fans.
It has now expanded to cities such as Newark, USA; Chiba, Japan; Abu Dhabi, UAE; Mexico City, Mexico; and Paris, France and sees 100,000+ attendees yearly.
The convention gives fans the chance to see multiple K-Pop groups and indulge in Korean culture and is a must attend for all K-Pop fans.
