The announcements for this year’s Summer In The City just keep on coming! As well as a robust line-up of creators, and the revealing of their own new awards scheme, the UK’s largest YouTube event just confirmed an exciting new guest for this year’s event: that’s right, Jenna Marbles will be coming to SitC for the first time.
Scheduled for a meet & greet on the Saturday of the 3-day event, Jenna will be meeting UK fans and attendees of the event for the first time ever. Jenna joins the annual meet & greet ballot implemented by the event, to ensure every attendee gets a fair chance of meeting someone and prevents hours of futile queueing.
The reveal that Jenna will be coming along to SitC wasn’t the only lineup news this weekend, however; as well as the addition of fan favourite Alexis G. Zall for the first time, and the return of Harrison and Anderson Webb, SitC also confirmed their most unusual line-up addition to date: Jedward.
The Irish twin pop duo, known originally as the ironic choice for 2009’s ‘X Factor’, have since come into their own with a young online audience – and the reaction the announcement they’ll be at SitC, fresh after being spotted around VidCon last month, has been pretty positive.
It’s hard to deny that this is shaping up to be the most interesting SitC yet! You can buy tickets and find out more information on the event, the lineup and many other details on the official Summer In The City website.
