Free Asian American concert coming to MacArthur Park in LA

A free Asian American music festival is headed to Levitt Pavilion at MacArthur Park, located between Downtown Los Angeles and Koreatown, on Aug. 13.

The inaugural KX Music Fest will feature performances by popular YouTube acts Dan AKA Dan and Rebecca Jung, as well as Justin Park, Yung Demi, Cathythekimchi, Fuzzy, Ammish and Korean rappers Sikboy and Absint, both alumni of the hit South Korean hip-hop competition show “Show Me The Money.”

According to organizer Joe Park, the event aims to highlight local and emerging AAPI talent – plans are underway to partner with the annual Los Angeles Korean Festival – the largest celebration of its kind in the country – to expand the concert into a two-day affair.

It’s also a tribute to Korean independence, recognized each year on Aug. 15, Park said. “This event is important for the community because it serves to create a stronger and more connected relationship between Koreans and the city of Los Angeles, while celebrating the diversity of cultures – especially with the popularity of K-Pop,” Park said.

The festival will include pre-concert food trucks and community sponsors, with giveaways and a singing contest by AfreecaTV, a live streaming app that has made stars out of ordinary people in Korea.

The concert is presented by Levitt Pavilion and YTN Multimedia. Visit for more information.
