From August 19 to August 21, the much-awaited KCON LA 2023, a three-day music festival, is expected to roll out with an exciting list of artists and their performances. The annual series this time will be held at the Crypto.com Arena and Los Angeles Convention Center with three varieties of interactions with artists prepared for the anticipating fans.

While the artists kick off the event with their mini-concert, performing a few songs from their discography, this will be followed by a fan meet-and-greet session. Though this was the tradition followed for a few years, for KCON LA 2023, a special signature event called SHOWCASE: NICE TO MEET U has been added.

This year's KCON, which will be the 11th anniversary of the K-POP cultural festival, will have three different hosts for the days of the festival. IVE's Wonyoung, K-pop soloist Rain, and Stray Kids' Bang Chan will reportedly take the role of the MCs at KCON LA 2023.

KCON LA 2023 is finally here, and the artists have been boarding their planes to reach the festival's venue to roll out their show-stopping performances. The festival has been one of the most-looked-forward-to events of the year not only because of the grandness and the events during the show but also the artists' lineup.

In addition to the already exciting list of events, KCON has introduced a new section names SHOWCASE: NICE TO MEET U. This event specifically focuses on new-and-coming artists and has an interactive session and special performances for the groups and their fans separately.

K-pop groups and soloists from various different generations are expected to be gathered at the event soon, and fans can hardly wait to see the never-before-seen combination of artists to get on stage. While the show will be an offline event, there will also be live streaming through KCON's official YouTube Channel.

The event is expected to kickstart around 12 pm KST or 8:30 am IST on all three days, with the live streaming on the YouTube Channel kickstarting simultaneously. While the live streaming requires the viewers to buy a YouTube membership, the individual performances of the artists will be accessible for free once the event has ended for the day.
