The self-proclaimed “biggest outdoor club in the world” is gearing up for this year’s edition at Korea’s port city of Incheon, with BigCityBeats World Club Dome Korea 2018 to be held from Sept. 14-16.

The Korea Tourism Organization on Tuesday signed an agreement with the Incheon Metropolitan Government and Peter Pan MPC, the host of the show, to cooperate for the successful operation of the event.

Last year’s event brought together over 100,000 fans from Korea and overseas. The organizers of the event expect the turnout to increase to 150,000 this year.
