Music Bank Kpop Festival in Paris!

A while back we reported that Korean TV Program “KBS Music Bank” (Korea’s version of the U.K’s “Top Of The Pops”) would be having a concert in Paris next year. Well confirmation has just been released in the form of ticket prices and seating categories.

There are two scheduled concert dates, Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th February 2012, showcasing Kpop groups and idols such as Girls’ Generation (SNSD), 2PM, BEAST, SHINee, 4Minute, T-Ara, U-Kiss and SISTAR.

Tickets are put into categories and will be on sale from October 25th at 10am. They can be purchased online through Fnac Tickets


Prices :

Cat 1 (seated): £87 (99.40 Euros)

Cat 2 (seated or pit): £78 (88.40 Euros)

Cat 3 (seated): £61 (69.70 Euros)




This wouldn’t be the first Kpop concert held in Europe. Earlier this year in June, S.M.Entertainment held their family concert “SMTown” in the Le Zenith Concert Hall in Paris. The Music Bank will be the second time that SHINee and SNSD have performed for the European fans, and a first for the other idols. Quoted from Soompi: “There are nearly 50 artists accompanied by their respective staffs, total delegation to Paris for the event should be over 110 people.” With this recent announcement, fans are already planning out hotels, travel, and friends to stay with. This could be another exciting concert, proving yet again that Kpop is slowly, but definitely, coming to the European music market.

If you are not familiar with any of the groups mentioned, check out the following video. It is a fan-made mash up by DJ Masa (aka: MasaMixes) featuring all the mentioned bands, plus a few added extras of the Kpop world. DJ Masa recently got noticed by Super Junior’s Shindong, and is currently collaborating with him to make his own mash up, with a personally made music video by Shindong’s dance crew “Shin’s Family.”
