Kickstarting with the K-pop girl group, the event will conclude on September 2 with the Black Eyed Peas' performance. Apart from the world-famous K-pop girl group, the lineup for the Good Morning America (GMA) Summer Concert Series 2022 includes the following international artists:

Tickets for the summer concert series can be purchased from the news channel’s official website or from 1iota by clicking on the "request free tickets" option. The gates of the venue will open at 6 am GMT.

Following K-pop boy group BTS’s appearance in 2019 and 2021 at the GMA Summer Concert Series, the girl group is only the second K-pop act to perform at the event.
