VidCon 2016: The COMPLETE Round Up
27 June 2016, 14:43
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?
