LOS ANGELES, Aug. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — South Korea-based immersive entertainment brand KAMP Global, in partnership with Eventim Live Asia (ELA), proudly present KAMP LA 2022. On October 15th and 16th, 2022, at the Rose Bowl Stadium, the most legendary venue in Los Angeles, KAMP LA 2022 will deliver one of the biggest live-music K-pop experiences in history.

KAMP LA 2022 brings together the powerful vision and singular history of KAMP Global CEO Tim Kim with the global reach, experience, and network of Eventim Live Asia, led by CEO Jason Miller.
Kim has led KAMP to the forefront of the K-pop movement. His experience includes working with high-profile clients in the Western music and Hollywood space. Kim identified the potential for K-pop as a global force in entertainment very early on and brought KAMP to life to lead and foster K-pop’s cultural expansion.
KAMP first came to life with its 2019 Singapore Festival. The sold-out event featured Super Junior, NCT 127, Stray Kids, MOMOLAND, GFRIEND, Sonnet Son, WJSN, Chungha, Ha Sung-woon, and AleXa; TimeOut hailed it as “trailblazing” and urged, “Get all charged up for two days of music, state-of-the-art effects, red carpet events, and opportunities to get up close and personal to your favorite acts.”
“We want KAMP LA to be the ultimate K-pop experience in all aspects,” says Kim. “U.S. fans have waited so long for great music because of the pandemic–they need to see their favorite artists for the first time in two years in many cases.
“Everyone in K-pop wants to break into America,” continues Kim. “There’s a deep connection between Korean culture and L.A. This was always the place to start. But we are also going to bring K-pop worldwide with KAMP and Eventim Live Asia. We will go to all markets where K-pop resonates—which is everywhere these days. KAMP isn’t just about mega-concerts or historic events—it’s a culture.”
Adds Jason Miller: “Kim’s vision was immediately exciting. KAMP Global and Eventim Live Asia share a true global vision for K-pop and the experience to make it happen in unprecedented ways. KAMP LA is a meaningful first step in that direction. There are many more to come.”
