BTS announces Festa 2024 in Seoul to celebrate its 11th anniversary

BTS announced their plans for their FESTA 2024 celebration.

This year’s event, which will be held on June 13 at the Seoul Sports Complex in South Korea, will mark the K-pop superstar group’s 11th anniversary.

FESTA 2024 will feature an official appearance by BTS’ Jin after he completes his mandatory military duty. The singer-songwriter will give a hug (or a handshake, if preferable) to 1,000 lucky fans at the complex’s Jamsil Arena, according to a press release. Jin will also deliver a message “consisting of a variety of segments promising an unforgettable experience for the ARMY,” the statement said. The artist’s message will be broadcast live to ARMY members via Weverse Live.

In addition to Jin’s appearance, this year’s FESTA will feature a variety of activities, including a sketch journal to commemorate BTS’ 11th anniversary.

Saturday June 1st, BTS revealed the official timeline for FESTA 2024. Ahead of the main event, the boy band shares a collection of never-before-seen photos, streams previous concerts, and posts handwritten content from each of the seven members.

Jin, RM, SUGA, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook of BTS are currently serving in the South Korean military, which mandates an 18-month military enlistment for all able-bodied males before the age of 28. Members have pursued various solo projects during their service, and the full group plans to reconvene for group activities in 2025.

BTS first appeared on the Billboard charts in 2013, when “No More Dreams” debuted at No. 14 on the World Digital Song Sales chart (before climbing to No. 2 seven years later). Since then, the group has broken numerous records, including the most Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 debuts among groups and the most top 10 debuts among groups. It’s been an exciting few years for the BTS boys individually as well, as all seven members of the group have now scored solo hits on the Hot 100.

Further information on FESTA 2024, open to the public, will be revealed at a later date. See BTS’ announcement on X (formerly Twitter) below.
