Los Angeles will welcome a star-studded K-Pop lineup with KAMP LA 2022!
In a partnership between South Korea-based immersive entertainment brand KAMP Global and Eventim Live Asia (ELA), the festival will take place on October 15-16 at the legendary Rose Bowl Stadium to deliver one of the biggest, live-music K-Pop experiences in history.
KAMP is set to bring a truly blockbuster lineup to the Rose Bowl. Confirmed acts so far include MONSTA X, KAI (of EXO and Super M), JEON SOMI, Super Junior, iKON, BamBam, Zion.T, and Lapillus. The full lineup with additional headliners and artists for the two-day event will be announced in the coming weeks.
“It’s exciting to take part in the KAMP LA lineup,” says KAI. “This may legitimately be the biggest K-Pop event in US history.”
Lee Teuk of Super Junior added, “To be part of what should be the biggest K-Pop music experience in history is incredibly exciting. This is something special that K-pop fans will remember and talk about for years to come.”
This immersive two-day concert experience will boast arts, cuisine, gaming, and significant brand collaborations, including a partnership with legendary Los Angeles artist Kenny Scharf to create KAMP LA 2022 graphics and aesthetics. Through its brand partnership with South Korean media phenomenon Dingo Music and South Korea’s leading personalized card payment system i-Aurora, KAMP will also bring exclusive content and trending technology to the live music space, including personalized, collectible KAMP LA-branded South Korean payment-approved cards.
KAMP LA 2022 brings together the powerful vision and singular history of KAMP Global CEO Tim Kim with the global reach, experience, and network of Eventim Live Asia, led by CEO Jason Miller.
Kim has led KAMP to the forefront of the K-Pop movement. His experience includes working with high-profile clients in the Western music and Hollywood space. Kim identified the potential for K-Pop as a global force in entertainment very early on and brought KAMP to life to lead and foster K-Pop’s cultural expansion.
KAMP first came to life with its 2019 Singapore festival. The sold-out event featured Super Junior, NCT 127, Stray Kids, MOMOLAND, GFRIEND, Sonnet Son, WJSN, Chungha, Ha Sung-woon, and AleXa. TimeOut hailed it as “trailblazing” and urged, “Get all charged up for two days of music, state-of-the-art effects, red carpet events, and opportunities to get up close and personal to your favorite acts.”
“We want KAMP LA to be the ultimate K-Pop experience in all aspects,” says Kim. “U.S. fans have waited so long for great music because of the pandemic—they need to see their favorite artists for the first time in two years in many cases.
“Everyone in K-Pop wants to break into America,” continues Kim. “There’s a deep connection between Korean culture and L.A. This was always the place to start. But we are also going to bring K-Pop worldwide with KAMP and Eventim Live Asia. We will go to all markets where K-Pop resonates—which is everywhere these days. KAMP isn’t just about mega-concerts or historic events—it’s a culture.”
Jason Miller adds, “Kim’s vision was immediately exciting. KAMP Global and Eventim Live Asia share a true global vision for K-Pop and the experience to make it happen in unprecedented ways. KAMP LA is a meaningful first step in that direction. There are many more to come.”
