Super Junior to Host ‘2012 Incheon K-Pop Concert’ with Kara, SHINee, IU and More
Aug 29, 2012
Incheon shook with the Pentaport Rock Festival in August, and again in September it’ll be having more fun with another K-Pop festival.
The 2012 Incheon K-Pop Concert will be taking place on September 9.
The 2012 Incheon K-Pop Concert will be hosted by Incheon City and overseen by the Incheon Development & Tourism Corporation (IDTC), and has confirmed for its initial lineup 15 of the biggest hallyu stars in the country, such as Kara, BoA, SHINee, IU, 4minute, Girl’s Day, Kim Tae Woo, Boyfriend, Dal Shabet, B.A.P, Jang Wooyoung (2PM), A-Jax, VIXX and Fiestar.
Super Junior will also be present as hosts for the event, which will take place for about three hours. Tickets are due to be made available on August 30, but Korean and overseas fans have already been bombarding the base with inquiries about the tickets and the concert.
The tickets are provided free of charge, and can be reserved through Interpark from August 30. More specifics about the concert have been uploaded on its official webpage.
Through the concert, the IDTC plans to set up Incheon as a musical city before it hosts the 2014 Asian Games and draw more tourists to the city.
More than 10,000 overseas fans are expected to enter Korea for the concert. The event is held every year in autumn, and is part of a project to help draw more tourists to Incheon. In 2011 it drew about 6,500 overseas audiences.
