Are you a Wassabian? Do you wish you could have a pizza party with Eva Gutowski? Have you been glued to fouseyTUBE since the dawn of time?
Whether you know what we’re on about or not, excitement is building up for Summer in the City’s awesome guests headlining the main stage, aka the new Chupa Sugar Free Stage, sponsored by lollipop legends Chupa Chups this August.
As the UK’s largest online video festival returns to ExCeL London this summer with a host of new guests, content and areas dedicated to gaming, fashion & beauty and lifestyle, we’re looking forward to seeing performances from some class acts, giveaways, visitor challenges, crowd games and interactive fun with live Q&As.
On Saturday 5 August, visitors will have the chance to see the likes of British singer-songwriter and YouTube vlogger Emma Blackery, 21-year old singing and songwriting sensation Bethan Leadley and Toby Randall, who has a celebrity following (including Nicki Minaj and Nicole Scherzinger) re-posting his covers online, take to the main stage. Saturday on the Chupa Free Stage will also feature live Q&As with Yousef Saleh Erakat, better known as FouseyTube, the YouTube personality, vlogger, comedian, prankster and rapper who will reveal all about his parodies, vlogs, comedy sketches and pranks. Also taking part in live Q&As will be Alex Wassabi who reminds us all that ‘if you’re not smiling, you’re doing it wrong!’ and also Californian-born Eva Gutowski (better known as MyLifeAsEva) who will share stories all about her comedy sketches, travel footage, Tumblr-inspired DIYs and outfits, and more.
From a comedy panel with Miles McKenna, Roomie, Jemel One Five and The Gabbie Show, to a live performance from The Shades and MORE, the main stage has never looked so good!
If that wasn’t enough, Sunday 5 August has an outstanding roster of panel, including Ethnicity Online, Women on YouTube, and Noodlerella, dodie, Savannah Brown, Hazel Hayes and Hannah Witton all on the Women Who Write panel.
The second annual SitC Awards kick off the Sunday night with performances from dodie, Talia Marr, Kelsey Ellison, Houssein, Jake Edwards, plus a whole host of live Q&As and live activities with other top YouTubers throughout the night!
With a whole load of panels, performances and meet and greet experiences, this year’s Summer in the City festival is definitely an event not to be missed.
