The Los Angeles installment of the 2016 KCON festival will feature some familiar faces, new guises for established acts, and a whole lot of rising stars.
The boy-band quintet SHINee is scheduled to headline the annual convention for South Korean pop culture July 29-31. The group joins previously announced major acts including the hip-hop group BTS and the Girls' Generation spinoff TTS.
Each of those larger acts has had major, well-received sets at recent KCONs, and have helped make the festival the largest of its kind in the U.S.
Other confirmed acts for the fest include the rap-inspired group Block B, pop groups Gfriend and Twice, balladeers CN Blue and rising acts Astro and Dean.
