PULP Live World announced the highly anticipated line-up for the upcoming sequel to the K-Pop Masterz concerts via its Twitter page yesterday (August 24). K-Pop Masterz 2 is set to be held in Manila at the Araneta Coliseum on September 23, with GOT7’s Youngjae and boybands iKON and ATEEZ confirmed to headline.

Tickets for the forthcoming gig will be made available for purchase from September 3 at 12pm local time onwards, via both physical TicketNet branches and the TicketNet website.

The official announcement of K-Pop Masterz 2 comes after a YouTube livestream, held earlier this month by Philippines-based event host Kring Kim and event organiser @happeehour, teased the return of the K-pop festival to Manila, with iKON having been confirmed as a performing act at the time.

ATEEZ were teased to have been part of the line-up, however were only confirmed when the official announcement was made. Youngjae’s inclusion in K-Pop Masterz 2 had not been mentioned during the original livestream.

Aside from K-Pop Masterz 2, the pair also previously teased two additional headline shows to arrive in Manila in the next two months. GOT7 member and soloist JAY B, as well as veteran hip-hop trio Epik High were mentioned as having possible shows scheduled for October, however concrete details and confirmations have yet to be disclosed to the public as of writing.

The second iteration of the K-Pop Masterz concert comes shortly after the original concert took place on July 29 at the SM Mall Of Asia Arena in metro Manila. That rendition saw a line-up that featured GOT7 members Jackson Wang and BamBam, as well as YG Entertainment labelmates TREASURE.

These hints of upcoming additions to the roster of live K-pop shows in Manila are the latest in a string of concerts announced to be arriving in the Filipino capital city in coming months.

Manila’s September line-up for K-pop concerts include (G)I-DLE, Jessi as well as Tomorrow X Together. SEVENTEEN will also be arriving in Manila as part of the Asia leg of their ‘Be The Sun’ world tour in October, however tickets for that show have been sold out.
