The 2019 Busan One Asia Festival will get a new home this year after the city of Busan’s decision to move the main event venue.
The main K-pop concerts have been held at the Busan Asiad Stadium since 2016, but this year will be moved to Hwamyeong Ecological Park.
Two main events — The K-pop concert on October 19 and the Family Park Concert on October 25 — are expected to attract about 30,000 fans to each concert.
The city announced that the venue has to be changed to prevent damage to the football field turf at Asiad Main Stadium for the successful host of the East Asian Cup 2019, the football championship of East Asia, which is scheduled to take place in December 2019.
Also, as per the city policy to enhance its support for the development of the West Busan area, the city has decided to change the venue for the Family Park Concert, previously held in Busan Citizens Park, to the West Busan area.
The Busan One Asia Festival will take place October 19-25, 2019.
