We’ve just received some amazing news — the Free NYC K-Pop Concert has been confirmed once again!
A concert organizer revealed exclusively to allkpop today that they had finally secured Overpeck Park in New Jersey
for their venue. The free concert was on the verge of cancellation due to capacity issues, but it seems that’s blown over for now.
Organized by KBS, the Free NYC K-Pop Concert will be part of ‘The 29th Korean Festival’, ‘The 15th Agro Exhibition’, and ‘The 20th Anniversary UN Admission New York Korea Festival’. This two-day event will focus on Korean culture on the first day, and be entirely dedicated to K-Pop on the second day.
Not only will the concert see performances from the hottest K-Pop stars, but there’ll also be a special mystery guest who’s only going by ‘Mister K-Pop Idol’ for now!
Christine J. Productions, in partnership with KBS, is the official coordinator of the “2011 KBS Concert at the New York Korean Festival” Thanks to Christine J Productions for arranging a free concert for all the fans to enjoy!
allkpop would like to emphasize that fans refrain from contacting Overpeck Park for additional information. Again, please do not contact the park for additional information. The park will not have enough resources to handle the huge surge of interest from K-Pop fans, and it could aggravate another venue cancellation. Also, there will be no overnight camping at the park for this two-day event. If you have a burning question that you absolutely must ask, please hit up @eunduklee on Twitter.
allkpop will be there for both October 8th and 9th, so stay tuned for another surprise announcement!
Exact details and information about admissions and everything else you have questions about will be revealed soon through allkpop, who will be the first to update on this exciting event. Be sure to check back for exclusive updates, only on allkpop.
