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.
