Korean pop sets its sights on Tenerife
TLP Tenerife 2019, the largest technology and new trends event in the country, is to host the TLP K-Pop Championship national championship.
The event, sponsored by Tourism of Tenerife, will bring together the best Korean choreography teams.
K-Pop is one of the most avant-garde trends followed by a young audience. Korean pop drama also extends to Japanese pop (J-Pop), with a huge following online as well.
TLP Tenerife 2019 will be held from July 15th to 21st at the Tenerife Trade Fair Centre under the organisation of the sociocultural association Innova7 and the Cabildo de Tenerife – through the Tenerife 2030 area and INtech Tenerife. The meeting has a 24 hour open area where 2,000 people enjoy the greatest connection in the country and the telepera experience. The area open to the public is the TLP Summer-Con, while TLP Esports brings together professional and amateur videogame competitions and TLP Innova offers specific training in areas close to technology.
This year, one of the highlights of TLP Summer-Con is TLP K-Pop Experience, an initiative of TLP Tenerife to promote Korean pop in Spain. The prize will be the possibility of travelling to TLP Tenerife Summer 2019, with transfer and stay included, and a place in the national final of the TLP K-Pop Championship national contest thanks to the support of Turismo de Tenerife.
TLP K-Pop Experience is a qualifying championship consisting of two phases. A first phase of preselection and another one of voting. In the first phase, interested national groups will upload a video cover of K-Pop to twitter with the hashtags # TLP2019 and #TLPKPopExperience. After this first phase, 15 will be selected. Of all the participants, a jury will select ten. The process of selecting the first phase will be completed with the five participants with likes in their publication.
