    There's the Super Shuttle you can book. From what I can remember, it's $32 per person roundtrip. When you arrive at LAX, once you exit look for the Super Shuttle people. They'll ask you which hotel you'll be staying at and they'll take you there. When you're going to leave, (ask the driver for a business card for the number to call), call the number the day before to let them know when you'll like to be picked up. When the driver gets to your hotel, they usually call you if they don't see you outside. Otherwise you're usually options are either to rent a car if you are able to or get a taxi. I hope this helps.

    Thanks. Shuttle is one of the options I was thinking about but I may end up taking the metro instead. =) I'm pretty good with the muni system in SF so I'm thinking it's about the same in LA.

    Anyone else arriving at LAX around 12:20pm on Friday?


    Probably no chance of Shinhwa coming here for a comeback show either huh?

    This will be my 5th KMF this coming year. Coincidentally, I got the same exact box seats as I did in 2011. I'm looking forward to going as they are very decent seats. Hopefully this time around the people in the box in front of us won't hold their signs up constantly. If that happens, I'll politely tap on you reminding you to stop. ;)

    As for the line up I'd love to see ZE:A, Infinite, DMNT, Block B, B1A4, Tasty, A-JAX, VIXX, 100%, B.A.P, After School or Orange Caramel, Nine Muses, EvoL & Ailee. Super duper long shot as their chances of ever coming are slim to none, but I'd also like for 2NE1, f(x) & EXO to come.

    Let's hope someone awesome & likeable will come and the line up on paper is decent. The anticipation kills me!

    Cannot wait for April!  This is my 5th year as well.  ^_^  And my sister will be back from Japan then!  We got Pool Circle, but I hope the tickets work out properly.  I got SecA, Row 7, Seats 9/10, but Korea Times called me today to say that there was a computer issue and my order had gotten messed up.  She was working on fixing it, but now I'm nervous. 

    For those of you worried about the line up, I have always enjoyed all the artists - young, old, and in between.  KMF has been my primary source for discovering new Korean music since I first got into it.  On the other hand, if you're thinking about attending only on the chance that you'll see Beast, Shinee, Big Bang, 2NE1 or something like that... you should probably save yourself the disappointment.  I'm not saying it's not possible... just that it's highly unlikely.  Yes, those groups have attended (I don't know about 2NE1, but everyone else has) but generally speaking they were rookies or at least still fairly new-ish when they did.  And I'm pretty sure it's been a while since SM or YG sent anyone.

    Last year, almost all the artists were super friendly and sweet at the hotel.  I met a lot of awesome people and had a lot of fun. 

    The super shuttle from LAX was a pretty stress-free way to get to the hotel and cheaper than a taxi.  Also, if you're staying at the Sheraton, there's a train/tram/light rail ~thing~ right across the street that drops you off a few blocks down from the venue that is much cheaper/easier than trying to figure out other ways to get there.  Driving/parking the day of the festival is awful.  Just an FYI for anyone who hasn't done it before.  Do yourself a favor and don't bother driving if you're staying in the Sheraton or it's nearby vicinity.

    Normally I wish for 1TYM/Danny Im, but I got to meet him at KCon last year, so that's one life's wish fulfilled even if he didn't sing.  So I guess my wish list this year is Gummy, Lexy, Se7en, B.A.P., NU'EST, Miss A, A Pink, T-ara, VIXX, Lee Hyori, TRAX, CN Blue.... and 1TYM. I can't help myself.  ^_^  And obviously, I'd never say no to Beast or 4Minute.  : /  I know there are a lot of Shinee fans in the world (or on FB, at least) asking for Shinee, but honestly I'd probably sell my ticket if they came.  Of all the artists I've seen in 5 KMFs (and KCon/KPop Masters), they're the only ones I've ever walked away disliking more than I did going in.

    anyways!  ^-^_/))  Looking forward to another awesome year!

    There is like NO HYPE for this years show and there were/are so many pool and garden seats still available. Is this a bad sign already?
  • nemkessnemkess Posts: 92Member

    I think the price hike has a lot to do with it.  I know a lot of people who decided they weren't going to buy tickets this year until they saw the aritsts.

    Also, a lot of the scalpers who buy out those tickets early on and sell them here and on FB for stupidly jacked up prices got bit in the butt last year when they couldn't sell them all, so I think some of those people backed off too.

    That's what I'm hoping for too. I mean the servers still crashed at first on the sale site, but things seemed to smooth out easier than last year and there are definitely more tickets still left at this point.

    I think releasing the sale date and new pricing very last second may have thrown people off as well. For me I was already expecting that weekend to be it, but I still saw the posting only after a friend pointed it out.

    Maybe they'll be able to get the setlist going a lil earlier this year and people can have a lil more time to decide. Last year was pretty last second when the final list was the week of and I didn't even know who the MCs were till I opened my program at the concert.

    Yeah, I expected the tickets to go on sale the last Saturday in January, so I wasn't caught by surprise. The ticket prices were a little ulcer-inducing, but I paid more at KPop Masters and honestly, the show wasn't as entertaining.  Which isn't to say it wasn't entertaining at all, because it absolutely was.  There's just a vibe at KMF that is more fun and welcoming than pretty much any other concert I've ever been to.  The atmosphere is just awesome.

    I'm really, really hoping BAP and/or Nu'est will be there this year.  My sister has been in Japan for the last two years and she's been pouting at me via SKYPE because I got to see them at KCon (especially after I saw her #1 fave group, BEG, twice last year without her).  If neither group comes, I'll never hear the end of it.  ^^;;

    regardless of the lineup, KMF is always a fun concert :c its really chill and laid back.
