Concert theme: Completion of the remodeling of Songdowon International Children’s Camp. Specific title of the concert: We have nothing to envy in this world (세상에 부럼없어라 Sesange purŏmŏpsŏra 世の中に羨むことはない)
Publisher: The whole concert as such has not been published. Some video clips have appeared on a KCTV news broadcast, mentioned below in the comments, starting at 35:33. The audio appears to be separate from what is shown on the video. Some audio clips were available in some of the North Korean sites at the time, but I did not get that information then. In June 2017 all songs mentioned can be heard at the Japanese MQube site. Links below.
The only clear info on the contents of the concert was an article in Rodong Sinmun published in 주체103(2014)년 5월 3일 토요일 = 3 May 2014, but the link there is not active any more.
Place: City of Wonsan (원산 元山) on the eastern coast (the birthplace of Kim Ki-nam; straight eastwards from Pyongyang; a good road there). Songdowon International Children’s Camp（송도원국제소년단야영 松濤園国際少年団野営所).
Audience: Boy and girl scouts, top local and Pyongyang brass, Kim Ki-nam included. Also KJU’s sister Kim Yo-jong (김여정 金與正) participated. She was at that time 27 years old. The concert was part of the opening ceremony.
KJU: Present; he reportedly likes to be in the presence of children, and gives special attention to children camps, orphanages, kindergartens, and schools. He himself is the father of a young daughter.
KCNA: Mentions the ceremony, but not MB. calendar>>May 2. 2014 Juche 103 (blocked outside of Japan, or at least in Europe)

There might have been also other songs, but they are not mentioned by RS. They all are old NK songs, apparently something that the children were familiar with.

Although 단야영 translates as “camping place”, the Songdowon International Children’s Camp does not imply tents in a field, or a cabin in the woods. It was one of Kim Jong Un’s flashy construction projects, consisting of a big complex of new buildings, outdoor and indoor sports facilities, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a large aquarium, wild animal exhibitions, many types of play and study rooms, escalators and elevators, nice dormitories for the kids, and of course the large auditorium for concerts, where MBB performed.
It clearly was an important project for KJU, as he inspected the site at least four times during spring 2014, the third visit being the inauguration ceremony. He inspected all facilities thoroughly, including the dormitories; blue sheets for boys and pink for girls … though the wall colours are the opposite.
The video showed also many times 김여정 Kim Yo-jong 金與正, who does not often appear in front of cameras. The opening ceremony involved large amounts of soldiers (perhaps the builders?) and children in scout uniforms, the usual flower installations and speeches, a football match of young boys, the MBB concert, and a large display of fireworks at the end.
This concert is the first instance where a male was observed at the stage together with the band. He was an elderly gentleman (composer 황진영 Hwang Jin-yong???), who conducted the band at least during songs that presumably were from foreign children’s movies, judging from the background videos. It is a mystery why he was there. The MBB members of course could have played the songs by themselves. Was he a part of the show for the children?
