Update: KAMP LA 2022 Announces More Last-Minute Changes To Lineup Due To Visa Issues

Updated October 15:

MONSTA X has now announced that they will also be unable to attend KAMP Los Angeles 2022 due to visa issues.

On October 15, following KAMP’s announcement that Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, EXO’s Kai, GOT7’s BamBam, Jeon Somi, Zion.T, and Lapillus would not be performing at the festival as planned due to visa issues, Starship Entertainment released their own statement announcing that MONSTA X was facing a similar issue.

Starship Entertainment stated, “Although MONSTA X fully cooperated with the organizers of ‘KAMP LA 2022′ to receive performance-related visas, including providing all necessary documents in advance, we ended up with no visa approval.”

The agency also revealed that KAMP had asked them to hold off on making the announcement that MONSTA X would have to drop out of the lineup. “Our company was made aware that our statement could be released only after the release of the organizers’ own announcement, but we decided that we could not delay our statement any longer for the fans who are waiting,” said the agency.

Starship Entertainment’s full English statement is as follows:

Hello. This is Starship Entertainment.

This is an announcement regarding the cancellation of MONSTA X’s appearance at “KAMP LA 2022” and other scheduled events in the US (October 16-17 2022 United States local time).

Although MONSTA X fully cooperated with the organizers of ‘KAMP LA 2022′ to receive performance-related visas, including providing all necessary documents in advance, we ended up with no visa approval.

Our company was made aware that our statement could be released only after the release of the organizers’ own announcement, but we decided that we could not delay our statement any longer for the fans who are waiting

Due to the same reason, iHeartRadio LIVE with MONSTA X, which was originally scheduled to be on October 17, is also inevitably cancelled.

Please understand that many other artists scheduled to appear at “KAMP LA 2022” have also not received visa approval. We were unable to inform you earlier about the situation due to delays from the organizers.

We would like to sincerely express our gratitude to MONSTA X fans, who always send us their unconditional love and support.

KAMP Los Angeles 2022 has officially announced several last-minute changes to its lineup of performing artists.

On October 14 local time, less than 24 hours before the start of the two-day festival, KAMP Los Angeles announced that a number of artists would not be able to take the stage at the Rose Bowl that weekend as planned.

According to the festival’s organizers, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, EXO’s Kai, GOT7’s BamBam, Jeon Somi, Zion.T, and Lapillus are all “unable to travel as planned due to unforeseen U.S. work visa issues and circumstances outside of the artists’ and promoters’ control.”

As all of these artists except for Zion.T were scheduled to perform on Saturday, October 15, KAMP announced that it had “increased artist set lengths on Saturday… and added MOMOLAND and T1419 as special guests.” Of the artists in the original Saturday lineup, Super Junior, iKON, and P1Harmony will still be performing as scheduled.

MONSTA X, aespa, Chungha, MOMOLAND, Epik High, and T1419 are currently scheduled to perform at the second night of the festival on Sunday, October 16.
