BTS Announces 2024 Festa in Seoul to Celebrate 11th Anniversary

BTS has announced plans for its 2024 FESTA celebration.

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

The 2024 FESTA will feature an official appearance by BTS’ Jin following the completion of his military mandatory obligation. The singer-songwriter will be giving a hug (or handshake, if preferable) to 1,000 lucky fans at the complex’s Jamsil Arena, according to a news release. Jin will also deliver a message “consisting of a variety of segments promising an unforgettable experience for ARMY,” the release says. The artist’s message will be livestreaming to those with ARMY Membership through Weverse Live.

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

On Saturday (June 1), BTS unveiled the official timeline for the 2024 FESTA. Leading up to the main event, the boy band share a collection of unreleased photos, stream previous concerts, and post handwritten content from each of the seven members.

BTS’ Jin, RM, SUGA, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook are currently serving in the South Korean military, which mandates an 18-month military enlistment for all able-bodied men by the time they turn 28. A few of the members have pursued various solo projects amid their service, and the full group is planning to reconvene for band activities in 2025.

BTS made its first Billboard chart appearance in 2013, when “No More Dreams” debuted at No. 14 on World Digital Song Sales (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 have now scored solo hits on the Hot 100.

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