A-Kon Family

The A-Kon® family started small in 1990 with only 380 people and now we’ve grown to an international following with over 21,900 attendees.
Many people have asked about our numbers over the years and we want to do our best to answer people’s questions and provide something you can cite if anyone asks.
These numbers are possible because of you, the fans, and we thank each and every one of you for your continued support.
