KPOPCON Returns for its Third Year at UC Berkeley


The original collegiate K-Pop convention, KPOPCON, is back for its third year to spread the love and fandom of K-Pop in Northern California.

“KPOPCON strives to gather fans of all backgrounds to celebrate the continuously evolving K-pop community in a social, creative, and academic setting. We aim to bring together like-minded individuals from across the nation to foster stronger fan relationships, provide university-level educational workshops and discussions, and positively impact fan identity.

This year’s theme of [Be] CHROMATIC embodies the vibrant spirit and mission of KPOPCON by taking the colorful and diverse aspect of the K-pop community and unifying it with its enormous potential to create, to dream, and to be.”


Where: UC Berkeley, California

When: March 8-9, 2014

The first day will feature a special Keynote address, workshop sessions and performances from local talent, showing off their K-Pop moves.
