I totally agree. Last year was amazing :D!

I want Big Bang, Jay Park, JYJ, 2AM and B2ST again. I heard from somewhere that Big Bang will be in Japan in May but I'm unsure.I hope they attend KMF instead ^^. Anyways I've been waiting for this thread^^. So glad that it's finally up. Can't wait for updates and all.

I'm probably the opposite of everyone that wants idol groups. I love idol groups but I would love to have DJ Doc, Psy, or Drunken Tiger. Someone that would hype up the audience and entertain everyone

I really want UKISS and FT Island to come~ It'd be great if Beast were to come back for 2011 and for SHINee to show some love for their US fans :P As far as girl groups, 2NE1 would be amazing (but I doubt YG artists will come T^T). I would love to see Miss A, SNSD and Davichi; they always put on a good show!

Regardless! Can't wait to see the lineup for this year~

Hahah! I didn't vote for 2PM or Big Bang because of their Japan promotion schedules.. T^T But OH man, Jang Geun Suk as an MC would be a dream come true!

Hi! Please do keep us updated (is it too early for information?) as this will hopefully be my FIRST experience with KMF. I'm oober excited, but nervous I won't be able to get tickets & what not. & @#%^*!%, I'm hoping B2ST will attend the festival, though knowing they have a lot on their schedule as is. Woot Woot. my ideal would probably be: B2ST, T-ARA, Big Bang, Shinee.. and, I don't know. As long as B2ST is in the mix.

I couldn't just make one choice. So I chose the last choice. LOL. What a statement. So anyway, I want to see many artists as I like and love a lot of them. But the main groups I want to see in the festival are Super Junior, SNSD, SHINee and C.N. Blue. I'm sort of biased towards SM artist so yeah, it's just normal for me to wish to see them often in music shows and festivals.

oh man, i've been checking soompi for the 2011 thread since like september LOL. is this going to be the official thread?

anyway, i chose BEAST because even though i saw them last year, i went with my parents ishh and i didn't get to meet them like a lot of other people did and ughhhh idk. i guess i should appreciate seeing them live at all but BEAST should still perform again. there are a lot of american B2UTIES.

besides that, i want someone like psy, epik high, or supreme team instead of idols+oldpeople. but that old lady from last year had a nice voice and was so cute! the idol line up last year was a bit disappointing though because they usually have at least one BIG name like big bang or super junior. To mix it up, they should have a band like F.T.Island or C.N.Blue too.

also, they started releasing information JANUARY 30TH last year. i remember this clearly because it's my birthday lol so i hope they begin releasing info at the same time this year (: but the fact that they release artists one by one is so excruciating lol.

EDIT: I wish they would let the MCs speak English. Otherwise, what's the point of having people like Nicole and Brian Joo if they only speak Korean. I know it's a Korean concert but it's obvious that there are going to be quite a few people in the audience who don't know the language. And the people that ARE Korean mostly speak English anyway.

I've been waiting for this thread!!!!

Wow, I really can't believe it's already time to start thinking about KMF 2011... last years seems like just yesterday!

There are sooo many idol groups now, that I'm not too worried about the line-up because I know for sure there'll be at least 1 person I love going xD (last year I loved every group, so yeah XD )

I heard on the 2010 thread that tickets are going go to on sale next month (February).. is this true? I wonder when info will be out~

Hey guys!

A lot of you seem interested on seeing if any information has been leaked yet. Unfortunately, there has been no news as of late. I personally contacted ktimes via e-mail since, as we all know, the way of contacting by phone is a bit....lacking. Either way, as one of our soompiers has stated, tickets were sold last year on January 30th (which by the way- happy birthday to Wakii very soon!). When contemplated with previous years of experience from all patrons, I'm assuming they will be releasing the ticket sale date within the last two weeks of this month.

Now I'd like to tell everyone, just to reassure those of you who are very eager to learn everything possible about this year's KMF, I am constantly on the look out for any sorts of information, including rumors. Of course I will do my best to find evidence for whatever rumor may come across and you all will be the first to know. :) I will be posting all of the concrete information within the first post. Updates will be as frequent as the news, so make sure to keep checking once the dates are released!

On a final note, I see we all have different idols we'd like to come this year! So far....

1. Big Bang!

2. B2ST

3. ShiNee

....these are our top three groups we want going to the KMF! We'll just have to wait and see!

Until then, everyone take care and be patient! Time will fly and before you know it- we'll all be at the Hollywood Bowl screaming our lungs out.

Sincerely,

Admin. for the KMF 2011 Forum
