Following a successful inaugural event in Frankfurt, Germany, which saw 65,000 fans descend on the city, Kpop.Flex comes to London for three nights at The O2, Sept. 22-24, 2023.
Europe’s largest K-Pop festival will fully utilize The O2, from its 20,000-capacity main arena to the indigo at The O2, as well as a range of other locations across the campus.
A Fan Fest will offer fans a range of activities to immerse themselves in Korean culture. Fans can expect an array of the world’s biggest K-pop idols.
The inaugural Frankfurt event brought EXO’s Kai, Monsta X, ENHYPEN, NCT Dream, Mamamoo and more to the stage.
Steve Sayer, VP and GM at The O2, commented, “We’re so excited to be hosting Europe’s largest ever K-Pop festival here at The O2 in September 2023. In recent years, K-Pop has taken the world by storm and so this is a huge milestone for us.
“We can’t wait to build on the success of previous hugely popular K-Pop performances at the venue, and welcome some of the world’s top K-Pop acts and their legions of fans to The O2 for a fantastic weekend festival event that will take over the full campus at The O2.”
Kpop.Flex is being staged by Kpop Europa, in partnership with promoter PK Events. Kpop Europa is a joint venture between Live Company Group and Explorado Group.
David Ciclitira, founder and chairman of Live Company Group, commented, “We’re delighted to be working with The O2 to deliver 3 incredible days celebrating K-pop to fans across the UK and beyond. We are super excited about the first edition of the International KPOP.FLEX Awards, which will showcase the very best talents of the K-Pop world!”
Kpop.Flex also recently announced that the festival will be returning to Frankfurt in 2023, June 17-18 at Deutsche Bank Park stadium.
