Are you the sort of person who can’t get enough YouTube in your life? Are you hooked on social media’s biggest stars? Then you probably won’t need a reminder that SocialCon, the latest YouTube gathering on the block, kicks off this weekend in Chicago. The Windy City will play host to some of the biggest stars of YouTube, Vine and Instagram at an event organized by the team behind Chicago Comic Con.
The event will be held this Saturday and Sunday August 23 and 24 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. SocialCon is taking place alongside the Chicago Comic Con but with a host of major social media celebs in attendance, the event is expected to draw a massive crowd of its own. Nash Grier, Hayes Grier, Cameron Dallas, Carter Reynolds, Reggie Couz, Princess Lauren, Toby Randall, The Hillywoods, KingBach, Kingsley, DeStorm Power, Anthony Quintal (LohAnthony), and Superwoman (Lilly Singh) are just a few of the big names on the guest list.
As the popularity of YouTube creators reaches stratospheric levels, gatherings like VidCon, DigiTour and now SocialCon have become big business selling thousands of tickets to fans who want to experience their internet idols IRL. For YouTube stars, it’s a chance to get to know their audience face to face rather than through a computer screen.
