Marshmello to Headline YouTube’s VidCon 2018 Event – Variety

YouTube is teaming up again with Viacom-owned VidCon for a splashy evening event at the online-video confab’s flagship U.S. event next month.

Recording artist Marshmello, whose top hits “Alone” and “Silence” have over 1 billion YouTube views, will headline the YouTube OnStage event and perform several of his fan favorites. Marshmello has over 14 million subscribers and 2.4 billion views to date on his three-year-old YouTube channel.

The event will be held Thursday, June 21, at The Arena at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif., and will be open to all VidCon attendees through a ticket-lottery system.

YouTube OnStage also will feature appearances by top creators, including Liza Koshy — who will appear alongside the cast of her YouTube original series “Liza on Demand” — along with Collins Key, Merrick Hanna, Kyle Hanagami and others.

It’s the second year YouTube is throwing a party at VidCon US. The 90-minute show at VidCon is sponsored by LEGO Systems and Sony Pictures Animation’s “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.”

In 2017, VidCon’s Anaheim convention drew over 30,000 fans, creators, and industry execs. VidCon, which was founded by YouTube vloggers Hank and John Green, was acquired by Viacom last year. The Australian version of VidCon is in its second year, and Viacom announced that it will debut VidCon in London in February 2019.
