The world of music has always been dominated by male artists, and K-Pop is no exception. Nevertheless, the expressive female characters in pop culture and noteworthy female musicians are steadily, and with confidence, taking over the music charts. K-Pop is a sensation that currently not only rules its domestic market but has also been embraced in the USA, Canada, Japan, Brazil, UK and the rest of the globe. Undeniably, it is a powerful force to be reckoned with as the industry gets bigger and better every year.

The K-chart’s Top Ten used to be dominated by F(x), Girl’s Generation and Twice; the spots have since been taken over by BlackPink and Mamamoo, but a new, strong player has just entered the house: Dreamcatcher. With JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Handong, Yoohyeon, Dami and Gahyeon as its members, the girl group officially debuted in 2017. Since then, the girls been promoting their new EP The End of Nightmare intensively, and with an innovative sound – Dreamcatcher skillfully combines K-Pop with strong guitar riffs and powerful drum beats, constantly moving on the line between K-Pop and K-Pop-Rock – this girl group seems destined for success.

Dreamcatcher swiftly caught attention of both music professionals and Western audience. They might not be recognized as a huge group in their native country, but they have surely made themselves known overseas. In 2017, they were voted no. 3 Billboard’s Best New K-Pop Act and a year later, with their second EP You and I, they again won Billboard recognition by reaching 7th place on its World Album Chart. 

Dreamcatcher recently released a mini-album titled The End of Nightmare, which again landed on Billboard’s World Album Chart, this time placing at no. 6. With this success in mind, the girl group is about to embark on their 5th overseas tour and their second European tour. The tour DREAMCATCHER CONCERT: Invitation from Nightmare City in Europe will have stops in 7 European cities, including London – thanks to MMT and Dreamcatcher’s fans. The artists will perform at the famous London’s ULU Live on October 24th. This will be one of those gigs you do not want to miss as the girls’ appearance and energy is more than just K-poppy; some see them as proper rock stars. 

Tickets will go on sale on September 2 at 11:00 local time via ULU’s website as well as on the website of the tour organiser, My Music Taste.

NOTE * My Music Taste regrets to inform you that due to schedule conflicts, Handong will not be able to partake in DREAMCATCHER CONCERT: Invitation from Nightmare City in Europe. The rest of the members, however, will partake in the tour. We ask for your understanding and thank you for your continued support.
