It’s all kicking off in Anaheim!

The #VidCon2016 hashtag is on fire right now. The 25,000-strong conference might have taken place all the way over in Anaheim, California, but Twitter is made us feel like we were there.

We already know all big industry stuff that’s been announced on day one – YouTube Red revealed a list of new shows coming to the channel next year, plus announces a new mobile livestream feature, commissioned it’s first ever Hollywood style series, a Dan and Phil documentary and a second SMOSH movie. Oh, and VidCon casually let slip that they were going global.

What else have us non-VidCon-ers missed?

Charlie McDonnell gave his professional critique of the programme


Q&As were in full swing    


There were premieres and panel talks aplenty







Things got a little bit sexy



The meet-ups looked like ALL the fun


There’s gonna be another SMOSH movie


Party levels were cranked up to 11


Olga Kay’s been dressing everyone

As ever, Maker Studios are cranking up the tunes


Bethan Leadley and our very own Liam Dryden also met some cool dogs


  Tyler Oakley’s merch was a hit…



…As was his Fantastic Beasts appearance

Everyone got a tiny bit sleepy


Many of you are sad you weren’t there.
