[★BREAKING] KCON 2016 to be held in Abu Dhabi for first time ever

The biggest K-Pop festival in the world, KCON, will be expanding in 2016 and heading to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates for the first time ever.

The historic KCON festival will be held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on March 25th. This will be the first time such a large K-pop event is being hosted in the Middle East and marks an enormous expansion of K-Pop overseas.

CJ E&M revealed in a statement that, “We will host KCON in Abu Dhabi in March. We still haven’t discussed the details nor signed any papers.”

Koreaboo joined with CJ E&M to co-found KCON starting in 2012 with the goals of spreading the Hallyu Wave into other markets outside Korea. The festival has gained momentum since its inaugural launch, from 10,000 attendees to over 50,000 attendees to date.
