K-PLAY FEST is the first ever K-pop festival run by fans, for fans, giving attendees across the country the opportunity to experience all things K-pop.

The 2024 tour started in Los Angeles earlier this year, with Seattle being its second stop.

South Korean rapper Sik-K was just announced to be headlining the event.

The artist, under the popular label H1GHR MUSIC, rose to fame when he competed on Show Me The Money 4 in 2015.

Since then, he has become one of the biggest names in the Korean rap scene.

One ticket gets you into all the events, including the Sik-K concert.

VIP tickets will be available at a future date according to the K-PLAY FEST social accounts.
