BTS is set to stage a free concert in Busan this coming October.

The concert, dubbed as BTS Yet To Come in Busan, will be conducted in support of the city's bid for the 2030 World Expo.

Big Hit Music announced on Wednesday, August 24, that the event will be happening at the Busan Ilgwang Special Stage in Gijang-gun, Busan on October 15 at 6 p.m. KST.


One hundred thousand fans are expected to attend the event. There will also be a real-time live play that will broadcasted at the Busan International Passenger Terminal. The show will also be streamed live on various platforms like Weverse, Zepetto, and Naver Now. 

A representative from Big Hit said that the concert will be free-of-charge according to a report of The Korea Herald. Those who want to attend the show need to register via Interpark. More details will be shared soon.

HYBE also announced that special packages from select hotels will be offered to concert-goers. 

"Special hotel packages offering accommodations and additional benefits will be available. We will soon provide you with more information: Paradise Hotel Busan, Grand Josun Busan, Park Hyatt Busan, Lotte Hotel Busan, and Fairfield by Marriott Busan Songdo Beach," HYBE posted.

It was in July when it was announced that BTS will be staging a concert in partnership with Busan.

"We thank HYBE for their active cooperation. We are confident that BTS’s support for the 2030 Busan World Expo will be of huge strength for the bidding of Busan, amidst this competitive situation. We will engage in recruitment negotiations, with the government also doing everything in its capacity," said Park Jung-wook, Secretary General of 2030 Busan World Expo, at the first strategy meeting for the expo bid last July 7.

HYBE’s Park Ji-won remarked that they will be working hand in hand with the city of Busan for its bid for the 2030 world expo.

"With the business agreement made with the city of Busan as the foundation, we will propose cooperative measures in various fields and plan to actively cooperate for Busan’s bidding of the 2030 Busan World Expo, a business that is important on a national scale," Ji-won said.
