This year the number of participating artists increased to 24 from 20 including K-pop singers, and J-pop and indie musicians. 

In two days, the festival attracted nearly 22,000 on-site attendees and 18,000 online viewers for a total of 40,000. 

Day 1: First day of 2024 Weverse Con Festival held in South Korea

Of the total on-site attendees, 51 percent came outside South Korea while 64 percent of all online livestream viewers were fans outside South Korea. Overall, foreigners accounted for 56.5 percent of the total online and offline audiences.

The outdoor Discovery Park venue featured an all-live band stage, delighting fans with fresh arrangements of their favorite songs in an open-air setting. The stage featured performances by BOYNEXTDOOR, &TEAM, Tomorrow X Together, Lee Sung Kyoung, 10CM, XIA, Chuu, Just B, Billlie, ENHYPEN, imase, BTOB’s Seo Eunkwang and Lim Hyunsik, and Kim Jae Joong for two days.

Indoors at the Inspire Arena featured performances by ILLIT, The New Six, BOYNEXTDOOR, &TEAM, Yoasobi, Le Sserafim, Tomorrow X Together, TWS, JD1, Plave, fromis_9, ENHYPEN, and Seventeen. 

In addition, the festival boasted a series of special tribute performances dedicated to J.Y. Park (Park JIn-young), founder of JYP Entertainment and a legendary Korean artist celebrating his 30th anniversary. 

Bang Si-Hyuk, chairman of HYBE and Park’s longtime "music companion," made a special appearance, accompanying Park on guitar and piano for a rendition of his hit songs.  

The Weverse Con Festival also showcased digital innovation: 

- Weverse Booth, strategic physical hubs, offered a range of interactive fandom activities. Highlights included physical artist photo cards with invisible QR watermarks, which could be saved as digital photo cards using the Weverse Lens feature, backed by the Digimarc technology from Practical Method. Inc. Weverse Booth welcomed around 20,000 offline visitors, doubling last year's attendance.

- Weverse Queue, allowing fans to queue online without physically lining up for booths,  was used more than 24,000 times. 

- Live AR Photowall enabled fans to capture moments as if they were hosting their own Weverse Live sessions. 

- Weverse Con Festival Official Light Band, the complimentary wristwatch-shaped band for fans to enjoy an elevated concert experience, which can be used alongside the HYBE labels artists' official light sticks during artist performances, fostered a unified audience experience. 

In total, about seven million users accessed the Weverse app throughout the two-day event, representing 70 percent of the app's general monthly active users (MAU) over that brief period. 

Since the initial festival announcement, over 1.53 million global posts about Weverse Con have been generated on X (formerly Twitter).

"We're thrilled by the heightened interest in this year's Weverse Con festival, reflected in increased attendance and enthusiastic feedback on-site and online. It's gratifying to see our vision of a unified music celebration resonating across generations and genres. Looking ahead, we're committed to expanding and enhancing the festival to create an even more inclusive experience in the future," said HYBE.
