KCON NEW YORK 2020 announced today that it will be rolling out early bird ticket access for the first time ever. The new setup is intended to provide more access to fans so they can lock-in their KCON experience at a discounted rate. Early bird ticket holders to KCON will also receive a special 2-hour early access window to purchase Artist Engagement tickets, one of the most popular programs at KCON, when they become available.
The types of tickets available during the early window will be a General Admission Convention pass and KCON Rookies – a two-hour showcase of rising rookie bands in the global K-pop scene so they can be introduced to new fans. KCON Rookies is coming to KCON New York for the first time ever after a successful debut in KCON Los Angeles last year. The inaugural KCON Rookies showcase in LA featured ATEEZ, AB6IX, and LOONA. Prices during the early bird window are as follows:
