In partnership with Korea Management Federation (KMF), CJ E&M conceived “idolCON” for constructive development of idol market along with expansion of idol fan culture and development of K-Pop market.
First held in May 2017, a big selection of idol groups and over 10,000 people gathered in the center of the K-Pop craze and brought together 54 experiential programs and various stages marking its presence as the representative K-Pop idol festival.
The sequel to last year’s successful launch, idolCON 2018 will return to an upgraded size, more diverse contents, and a more powerful lineup than before.
If idolCON 2017 presented 30 idol groups, it will double in size this year, and it will be a hot festival venue, not only for newcomers, but also for existing popular groups.
Various experiential contents ranging from fan meetings, signature sessions, high-touch, quizzes and recreational programs are expected to boost the lively vibe of the gathering of K-Pop fans.
Fan club booths, idol related goods’ stores, exhibitions, dancer auditions, as well as, vocal and dance lessons will be housed in the festival.
