A total of 12 K-pop groups and artists were set to perform across the weekend event. The Boyz and Itzy were just some of the acts set to take to the stage during its O2 Arena takeover.

In a statement on the K-pop Lux O2 Arena event page, organisers confirmed the September event would be cancelled as it told fans and ticket holders the event had been postponed due to "unforeseen circumstances."

The message began: "It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the postponement of the Kpop Lux London show. We have tried to find a way to keep the show alive but have just run out of options. We know that you will be disappointed and no doubt angry.

"Our aim to ensure the show is made to the highest possible quality, and due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to deliver that at this stage. We acknowledge where we have gone wrong and that we have disappointed so many of you."

They explained: "We hope that you will consider joining us once we announce a new show date and when we can promise to bring you the best show."
