On February 2, EXO‘s Kai was officially confirmed to be joining the final lineup for KPop.Flex, Europe’s first ever K-Pop festival, just as tickets sold out for the event.
The impressive 7-artist lineup now includes (G)I-DLE, MONSTA X, ENHYPEN, NCT DREAM, MAMAMOO, AB6IX, and Kai. The festival will be held on May 14 of this year at the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Germany, and promises a show duration of 5 hours in total.
The festival first started announcing its lineup in January, with (G)I-DLE and MONSTA X being one of the first artists to be confirmed. ENHYPEN and NCT DREAM joined the lineup soon after, and anticipation continued to build with each new announcement. MAMAMOO was confirmed to be joining on January 27, and just as AB6IX and Kai were announced on February 2, tickets completely sold out.
Kai has been trending on Twitter ever since…
…with fans in Germany and Europe still in disbelief over the announcement.
