    Can't wait for the concert! I've had a blast the last two years, hopefully this year will top both of them since it's the 10th year. :) I'm hoping for BIG NAME artists to be going this year since they are saying it's going to be really "special".

    Super excited to go again! We already booked our plane tickets. I hope there's a good line up!

    I'm very excited for this year and I'm hoping they have a great line-up because it is their 10th anniversary - they better make it special. However, I'm sure I'm still going to have a great time even if some of my favorite artists aren't coming. (=
  • alasamalasam NYC Baby&#33;Posts: 741Member


    i was afraid they would pull a date change like last year and didn't buy my plane ticket right away. And between yesterday and today it just moved from $299 to $454! :crazy:

    BIG BANG!!

    I think I speak for a lot of the VIPs out there when I say- come to America and we will treat you well ;) kekeke

    But seriously, please? your music would definitely be appreciated here, so why not come to KMF '12 and show everyone in LA what you guys are capable of?

    And shouldn't KMF's 10 annual concert go out with a BANG?!... of course I mean BIG BANG!<3

    love always and forever,

    a faithful VIP.
    VIP for LIFE

    i feel like KMF is exaggerating about it being "super special" this year since it's the 10 year?

    like ya they'll do something special, probably give out great prizes but artist list? :/
    not so sure...i mean i sure HOPE so cuz i'm considering to go this year since it is their 10th year but again, mola.

    Can't wait for this year's Korean Music Festival!!! This year I'm gonna try to get pool seats because super seats were a bit far considering that you couldn't really see the artists. :(
    In 2011, I wasn't really satisfied with the line-up. There was only like 2 or 3 artist I liked, but I wasn't a HUGE fan of them. But the concert ended up being REALLY fun! No matter who's there.
    I know a lot people are expecting or doubting that this year will be BIG since it's the 10th annual. I sure hope it will be bigger because of all these kpop/korean concerts that has happen for the past few months or so. Plus there was a lot of negative comments about the Last year's Korean music festival line-up. So hopefully they listen/read the fans feedbacks.
    But I'm gonna go, no matter who's there. I mean if you are TRUELY a KPOP FAN you would still go no matter how much you don't like the line-up.
  • kfashionistakfashionista Posts: 42Member, New Member
    I hope they do something huge as far as line-up goes considering it is the 10th anniversary, but I'll be going regardless.  I had a blast when I went in '10!

    I can't wait for this!!! I have never been to one I supposed to go to the '10 one with B2ST but my friend bailed so hopefully this year it won't be like that and some good acts come that will be awesome ^_^
  • YuffieKYuffieK LAPosts: 136Member
    Did you guys see the poll they have on the official facebook? Korea Times is asking everyone which artists they want to see the most at KMF!! Everyone go vote! I voted for so many artists... lol!!
  • _FallenLeaf__FallenLeaf_ Posts: 6Member
    So excited for this year's KMF!! It's their 10th year so I hope they do something special. No matter which artists go it's still really fun.
    Going to camp out and try to get a garden box. If anyone wants to share with me and my best friend pm~

    It would be nice to see 2Ne1, Tablo, Miss A, f(x), SHINee, INFINITE, or MBLAQ to come. It would be a major place if Brown Eyed Girls or DBSK come! Hehe, love them! But nevertheless, I would enjoy my time there. I did last year. ^^

    :( It's on my birthday... I would go, but I keep changing my mind.
    Sigh. @____@!!!! It's going to be my 21st Birthday. AHHH. *go crazy* Maybe I'm too old now to go, I remember first going to HB in 2008. Yesung came :D i was happy hahaha.

    I wish to see IU <3 PLEASE. and FT Island (LOL if I do go, it's always expensive :()
    Songs are my inspiration.
    Struggling as I write this love story,
    composing a tomorrow I cannot see.
    I want to be by your side when I'm standing still in loneliness.
    So I won't get lost.
    Love, fly away . . .

    I'm really hoping for B1A4, Block B, Boyfriend, and/or Infinite to come this year~ I would include U-Kiss, but I doubt they'd bring them back a second year in a row. :\ And my other bias groups aren't popular enough to come, so yeah. xD
    Can't wait for this concert!

  • ticklemepinkzticklemepinkz CA, "U SA"Posts: 263Member

    Definitely worth the camping out for great seats. I know it will be hectic during the actual ticket sales and i bet online would crash like last year.. :wacko:

    They usually announce on march, but even if your favorite artists dont come.. like all the other posts said.. its definitely worth going and seeing up close. You would always have a blast no matter what and would definitely not regret a thing but you would regret not having a closer seat :P Also, you can resell your ticket if you'd like.

    Remember guys, its for all generations, not called an "Idol Festival"
  • 91DLG91DLG Posts: 110Member
    I have a question regarding section D and E seats. I know that entire section is filled with benches, but when you buy tickets for it, are you given a specific row to sit in? Or do you just sit which ever row you want to? Someone online said that I should get there early (if I buy section D/E tickets) so I can get the best view, but I'm not too sure what they meant. 

    If you guys could help me out, that would be great! Thank you for reading!
