The Countdown to VidCon Begins – and We're Losing All Chill
PEOPLE will be on the ground at the sixth annual VidCon, a three-day celebration of all things online video
Chances are, you have a YouTube crush. Or obsession. Or inspiration. Or husband, even. (Hey, we’ve convinced ourselves we’re happily married to both Jack Howard and Dean Dobbs.)
Which is why we’re counting down the minutes until July 23, when the Internet’s hottest video stars will flock to Anaheim, California, for VidCon: three days of performances, talks, tutorials, signings and Q&A’s with more than 300 personalities.
Naturally, we had to be there. We teamed up with Entertainment Weekly to host our very own stage, where we’ll be interviewing stars such as Amanda Steele, Trevor Moran, Toby Turner, Jack Howard, Ingrid Nilsen, Benjamin Cook and loads more. (Send us your questions in the comments below, or hit us up at @people on Twitter or on facebook.com/peoplemag.)
More than 20,000 attendees are expected at the festivities, which will run for three days at the Anaheim Convention Center. If you can’t make it, don’t worry – we’ll have an onsite photo booth, so stay tuned for fun pictures and videos that we’ll post on PEOPLE and EW.com. (We’re going to be just like that friend who posts too much on Instagram. Get excited.)
In the meantime, we’re using VidCon as an excuse to watch YouTube videos nonstop as preparation/training for July 23. And, because VidCon is a festival in California, we’re prepping Coachella-like outfits, inspiration courtesy of Amanda Steele (MakeupbyMandy24).
