Red Velvet, EXO’s Suho, Chung Ha and more have been confirmed to participate in MIK Festival 2022, which will take place in London.
The one-day event, called Made In Korea Festival, is billed as “the largest outdoor K-pop festival in Europe ever”.
SM Entertainment’s girl group Red Velvet will top the charts at Southwark Park on July 30, featuring artists like Suho, Chung Ha, Pentagon, and Golden Child. Newer artists, such as VIVIZ – new group from GFriend’s SinB, Eunha and Umji – FNC Entertainment’s Cherry Bullet and rookie girl group Billlie, will also appear.
More performances will still be announced for the festival, which will run from 12pm to 9pm. Tickets are yet to go on sale but will cost £108 for general admission and £168 for the golden circle, according to MIK’s Instagram.
The festival will also feature K-fashion, K-lifestyle, K-culture, street food, drinks, dancing, flash mobs and more. You can find more information on the MIK Festival website.
The MIK Festival follows the announcement that the HallyuPopFest, which was launched in Singapore in 2018, will be held in London this year. That event will take place at OVO Arena Wembley from July 9-10, with acts including Hwasa, Kai, KEP1ER, CRAVITY, EVERGLOW, P1Harmony and more.
Red Velvet released their latest mini-album “The ReVe Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm” in March. In a three-star review, NME speak: “[The record] feels significantly substandard, if only because of the repetitive flavors and unimaginable rotation across genres.
“Compared to their previous outputs, this is a less enticing festival and more of a festival you’ve been to too many times – save up for new attractions often, that’s what you’ve never seen before.”
