KCON 2016 is coming to Abu Dhabi, marking the first time a Korean cultural convention will be held in the Middle East. After travelling to the US and Japan, the event will now bring Korean culture, food and beauty trends to the UAE, along with some of Asia's most loved K-pop musicians.

Abu Dhabi will welcome the biggest names in the industry including Ailee, nicknamed the Korean Beyonce. Other major acts confirmed for the show are BTS, Taeyeon, Kyuhyun, Double S 301, Monsta X and Spica. 


"We hope to see KCON 2016 Abu Dhabi serve as a catalyst to spread Korean culture in the Middle East, where the whole world is paying close attention these days for its vast business opportunities," said Ahn Suk Joon, CJ E&M Music Division President and KCON Organiser.


KCON 2016 will be held on March 25 at the Du Arena, Yas Island. Tickets start from Dhs350 and are available at Virgin Megastores and ticketmaster.ae.
