Get ready to hit play this weekend as one of the world's largest YouTube conventions hits the Orlando, Florida area this weekend, April 22nd-24th. Playlist Live celebrates 6 years of hosting one of the biggest gatherings of YouTube and social media creators, fans and sponsors. The event is held at Orlando World Center Marriott and has been immensely successful in connecting content creators with their fans.
The convention will host meet and greets and panels featuring their impressive guest list of over 250 social media greats from platforms such as YouYube, Vine, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Snapchat. Attendees can meet their friends and favorite social media elites "IRL" over the course of the 3 day long convention.
In addition to panels and celebrity meets the event will also host a performance stage featuring musical performances, comedy acts, and guest speakers during the entirety of the weekend. A huge slew of sponsors will also be in attendance while the event holds an expo highlighting talent, entertainment and passion in creativity.
I personally will be in attendance of the event and look forward to reporting back. Having attended the past few years I will say this is definitely a "Must-Do" for any fan. Not only does the event bring you up close with some of the most inspiring people across the globe but it also connects you with thousands of others who enjoy sharing their lives on the media platforms we've grown to love as a part of our daily lives.
The event also embraces a large span of communities including teens, families, and LGBTQ (to name just a few!) this creates a positive and supportive energy that spreads across gatherings, pool parties, creator lounges and so much more all weekend long.
Tickets are still currently for sale on their website but it will sell out before the weekend. It isn't too late to join along and if you are going we would love to hear about your stories and who you are most excited to meet this weekend in the comments below!
