The Best Highlights From This Year's VidCon!

Written by Amanda Baltazar. Published: July 08 2017


This year, VidCon was held on June 21-24, and every year it just keeps getting bigger and better! 


The first VidCon was held in 2010 and had over 1,000 people attend. Each year that passes, more and more influencers and even more fans of the community flock to the event. At the 2016 VidCon, there were over 25,000 atendees! 


VidCon brings together social media influencers and their fans in one place where the new age of digital media communities can come together and share their passion. But while tickets always sell out quick, YouTube streamed various live events and interviews throughout each day of the conference. From panels and influencer interviews to special performances, even if you weren't at VidCon, you could still feel like you were there. 


Here is Day 1 of the VidCon stream. Fast forward to 11:05 for the start of the show!




VidCon was huge! So the stream didn't catch everything but here are some of the highlights from VidCon 2017!

VidCon looked amazing and I'm still suffering from FOMO, but I am definitely going to go next year and I can't wait to see how they top themselves after this year!
