KCON today revealed AB6IX, HA SUNG WOON, KARD, LOONA, MAMAMOO, PARK JIHOON, and SUNMI as the first slate of artists set to take the stage at ‘KCON:TACT season 2‘, a first-of-its-kind event delivering its unique experience virtually to living rooms across the planet. Additional artists to be announced in the near future.
Co-hosted by CJ ENM and The Korean Creative Content Agency (KOCCA), the global celebration of Korean culture and pop music is set to take place October 16-25 from Mnet’s world class television production studio in Seoul, South Korea.
‘KCON:TACT season 2‘ will grow to 10 days and will feature live concerts and meet & greets with dozens of top artists as well as countless hours of behind-scenes content from influencers and artists, both live and pre-recorded. Utilizing Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), and eXpanded Reality (XR) technology, the event will continue to push the limits of what is possible with virtual entertainment and strengthen the ways fans at home can participate in the show as a live audience.
KCON-ers from all over the world will be able to cheer together at the same time and the programs will provide English subtitles. KCON is again teaming up with YouTube to broadcast ‘KCON:TACT season 2.’ The entire program will be streamed globally and exclusively on Mnet K-Pop‘s and KCON‘s official YouTube channel globally. All interactive elements, including direct artist communication, will be available only through the YouTube platform and stream.
Mnet, a leading music entertainment network part of CJ ENM, and the organizer of KCON, will bring its expertise as the producers of Mcountdown and MAMA to further its core goal of giving fans around the world more access to the best in K-pop music and Korean culture.
