→ What is this K-Community Festival all about?
It's a way to bring different K-Fan Communities in Belgium and Europe who love Korea's traditional & contemporary culture together! Korea has a lot to offer and now you get to witness it all!
→ What is a K- Community and what do they do?
A K-Community is an organisation or group of people that share the same interest and passion in (South) Korea. This interest is very wide and can be in both K-Pop related or more traditional Korean topics, as well as Korean culture, Korean music in general and fashion.
→ I'm not part of a K-Community, can I still come?
Off course you can!! This festival is for everyone that is interested in Korea and wants to enjoy a fun day experiencing different traditional Korean or K-POP activities.
→ How can I receive more information about this festival?
We will update our website regularly with more information. Please come back to this page often so you won't miss out on anything.

→ Do I have to attend both Hallyu Wave and the concert?
You’re free to do with your ticket as you see fit. However those already inside will get to re-enter first once the doors to the concert open again.
→ What will the concert bring to you?
DREAMCATCHER and UP10TION will be there to give you an amazing performance! But on top of that the communities are also brought to the stage. Four representative communities of various countries have gotten the chance to learn traditional arts from some of the best teachers in Korea and will be presenting you with their amazing show at the concert! In the next few days you will get to see their introduction videos on our social media!
