KCON, an annual global Hallyu convention held since 2012, will take place in Australia in September, featuring a star-studded lineup of K-pop artists, according to its organizer Thursday.

The event is being held for the first time in Australia. It will be from Sept. 22-23, marking the fifth and last stop of the cultural convention this year.

The two-day event at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney will showcase some of the biggest K-pop names, including Girl’s Day, Victon, Monsta X, Up10tion, EXO, Cosmic Girl, Wanna One, Pentagon and SF9.

Apart from K-pop concerts, the convention will allow participants to experience other aspects of Hallyu, such as K-beauty, fashion and food.

Since beginning as a one-day event in Irvine, California in 2012, KCON has attracted more than 350,000 attendees during its five-year run. This year’s convention kicked off in Mexico City in March, before moving on to Chiba, Japan, in May and New York in June.

It will head to Los Angeles from Aug. 18-20 before wrapping up in Sydney.
