The growing popularity of K-pop all across the world has led to multiple organizations pooling efforts and money together to have concerts for fans. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the rate at which these concerts were held has obviously decreased leaving fans a little disheartened. But with improving situations, K-pop has again become a household name for many. KPOP.FLEX is one such concert that will embark as one of the biggest KPOP concerts in Europe. 

The event’s representatives announced on February 14, 2022, that it will be adding an extra show. The performance, which will take place in May at Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Germany, is billed as Europe’s largest-ever K-pop festival, with nearly 44,000 tickets sold out in less than seven weeks before the inclusion of the second date.

KPOP.FLEX also announced revisions to its previously planned line-up

KPOP.FLEX also announced revisions to its previously planned line-up for its initial Saturday (May 14) performance, in addition to the additional date. AB6IX, ENHYPEN, (G)I-DLE, IVE, EXO’s Kai, MAMAMOO, and NCT Dream will now play on Saturday, with previously confirmed acts MONSTA X due to appear on May 15 instead.

On the addition of a second date, Deutsche Bank Park MD Patrik Meyer said in a statement: “The attraction of the KPOP.FLEX festival is enormous for fans, as the K-Pop wave truly arrives in Europe. The fact that we can offer the fans a second festival day in our modern stadium in Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, continues to increase the anticipation.”

According to a press statement, MONSTA X’s performance date has been changed owing to “domestic concerns.” Meanwhile, on May 15, three of the first day’s performances – AB6IX, (G)I-DLE, and IVE – will return, as well as boyband ONEUS.

Due to an unanticipated change in MONSTA X’s itinerary, ticket holders for the first show will be able to exchange or refund their tickets for the Sunday event until February 18 at 6 p.m. CET.

According to a press statement, KPOP.FLEX will be the first K-pop multi-group performance to ever visit Europe, with the goal of expanding the European K-pop listening audience through a five-year strategy aimed exclusively at the continent.

Aside from concerts, festivalgoers can expect to see unique artworks by WINNER’s Kang Seung-youn, Ohnim, and former SUPER JUNIOR vocalist Henry Lau, among others. These artworks will also be available for purchase as limited edition prints on location.

One element of surprise that the show has still maintained is that there is one performance that has not yet been revealed. This has created anticipation amongst audience as to who the possible K-pop start or group could be. 

How to buy the tickets of the show?

The event’s ticket prices start at €68.00 for upper-level seats and go all the way up to €288 for the VIP box. The TicketMaster website is where you can buy tickets.

In a report by the LVCG, Chairman David Ciclitira said: “KPOP.Flex is a tremendous opportunity for JV partners to showcase K-Pop to the genre’s huge European fan base at a world class stadium that has hosted concerts for global superstars such as Coldplay and Elton John. I am delighted that LVCG continues to diversify its revenue sources in the live entertainment space. Furthermore, with KPOP.Flex, we are building an asset value which in due course could be highly marketable to large event companies.”
