A handful of the hottest Korean pop idols including Girls' Generation and Super Junior are gearing up to perform at the "Incheon Korean Music Wave 2010," according to concert organizer HH Company on Tuesday.

HH Company and the city of Incheon announced the first line-up of performers for the event, to be held at Incheon Munhak Worldcup Stadium on August 29, which includes 2PM, After School, BEAST, CNBLUE, MBLAQ, SG Wannabe, SHINee, Son Dambi and U-KISS.

"We are planning to make Incheon the hub city of Asian music through hosting the 'Incheon Korea Music Wave' concert," explained an official at HH Company. "We want to create new performance contents for Hallyu stars every year and make it a festival which represents K-pop music in Asia."

Founded in 2009, the "Incheon Korea Music Wave" festival attracted some 50,000 fans to its premiere concert last summer which featured Rain, 2PM, Brown Eyed Girls, Girls' Generation, M (Lee Min-woo), SHINee and Super Junior.

The music festival, which also included fan meetings and autograph signing sessions, drew heated publicity from various foreign media outlets in China, Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and put the city of Incheon and Hallyu performers on the map.

Further details about the concert are available on the official website (www.koreanwavefestival.com).

The second line-up of singers for the festival will be announced later this month.
