Dream Concert in Busan, Korea May 27
Dream Concert holds more meaning
The excitement for this year’s Dream Concert is huge! Started in 1995, Dream Concert is the nation’s largest, longest-running K-pop concert and has seen over 604 artists perform to a total of 1.55 million people over its nearly 30 years. The 29th Dream Concert is being held at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium on May 27 in support of the successful bid for the 2030 Busan World Expo. The stadium has experience in hosting large K-pop events, including a BTS concert in October 2022, and a special K-pop concert in celebration of the visit by the Bureau International des Expositions. Busan is quickly becoming known to the world as a leading hallyu travel destination!

This year’s concert will feature an all-star lineup of Golden Child, KIM JAE HWAN, Kim Taewoo, DRIPPIN, DREAMCATCHER, BB Girls, OH MY GIRL, ONEUS, EVERGLOW, ITZY, JO1, NMIXX, TAN, TEMPEST, Lapillus, JUST B, NINE.i, and MIRAE. Ticket sales open online at Ticket Link on May 3 at 20:00 KST. Every year, tickets sell out very quickly, so you’ll have to hurry if you want to snag one! And if you don’t manage to grab a ticket to see the concert in person, you can still enjoy it in the metaverse! Dream Concert will air live worldwide (excluding Japan and China) on the concert platform LAVATA.
The Korea Tourism Organization is also preparing a special event. Keep checking the VISITKOREA website and social media channels for the chance to get free Dream Concert tickets!
