Do you love YouTube? Do you subscribe to different people and watch their uploaded videos religiously? Do you have a show of your own or are looking to start one? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should consider attending the 5th annual VidCon. VidCon was created in order for there to be a space for fellow YouTubers to connect, come together, and learn more about the online video world. This year, VidCon will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The event will be from Thursday, June 26th through Saturday, June 28th. It will occur from 9am – midnight each day. YouTubers staying in hotels around Anaheim Convention Center would not want to miss this chance to see YouTube celebrities at this year’s VidCon!
VidCon was created 5 years ago by author, John Green (The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska) and his brother Hank Green. The two brothers were some of the first pioneers of the video blogging world, garnering over 500 million views. They will return this year as the hosts and moderators for various panels. At this event, there will be panels and discussions from people in the industry, as they talk about their experiences in the video blogging world and more. There will also be Q&A events where you can not only have the chance to talk with some of the top YouTube creators, but you can also see performances, live recordings, exclusive book readings, and even short film screenings. There will be opportunities throughout the event to get autographs from your favorite bloggers and a stage at the Kia Mainstage where dance parties will occur! Music performances will occur at the Hollywire Red Carpet Stage. There will even be an outdoor music festival since one stage just isn’t enough!
Some famous YouTubers that will be in attendance include: Jenna Marbles, Hannah Hart, Charlie McDonnell, Rhett and Link, Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox of Smosh, and HartBeat, just to name a few. There will be many, many more! This is an event you won’t want to miss!
