The event was set up by vloggers and allows those YouTube stars - many of whom are hugely popular - the opportunity to perform in a live setting, often in front of the biggest audience of their lives. The fans can watch their favourite musicians, comedians, video bloggers and filmmakers on the main stage, but also meet them face to face to get a selfie or an autograph.

The weekend features live performances, talks and many opportunities for fans and content creators to connect with each other and meet their favourite YouTubers.
