Road trip, anyone?

VidCon fans in Australia and Europe rejoice - in 2017 VidCon will be visiting neighbours way across the pond. Branching out from their Anaheim base, the world's biggest online video event will be taking the cities of Amsterdam and Melbourne by storm.

The European and Australian debuts will each last two days and expect to welcome 7,500 fans each. The original Anaheim event will take place as usual next Summer too, and is likely to attract some 25,000 fans that have turned out to VidCon 2016. The layout will be super similar to the US event and the UK YouTuber event Summer In The City, featuring exhibitions, panel events, performance spaces and, of course, all the meet-and-greets creators can fit into the day.

Needless to say, YouTubers and fans alike are delighted...



The news comes as fans and creators from across the globe descend to California for VidCon 2016 with everyone from Sprinkle of Glitter, John Green, Books and Quills and our very own Liam Dryden preparing to meet fans and celebrate everything YouTube! Of course, we'll be covering it all here on We The Unicorns and, if you're there, be sure to send us your tweets at @WeTheUnicorns.
