On Saturday, August 13, fans of YouTubers like Lilly Singh, AsapSCIENCE, Megan Nicole and more will get to see their favourite social media stars dance, sing and speak IRL.
Last year’s FanFest was not only a first for Toronto, but a first for North America. The event saw over 15,000 fans participate, making it three times the size of FanFests in Asia, Australia and India. That’s a lot of fans festing.
This year’s event will be even bigger and better than the last one. Toronto’s own YouTube superstar Lilly Singh (aka IISuperwomanII) will headline the show fresh off her first appearance at the 2016 iHeartRadio MMVAs alongside returning fan favourites Mike Tompkins and Humble the Poet. They’ll be joined this year by an incredible lineup of performers, including AsapSCIENCE and musical artists Megan Nicole, Tiffany Alvord and Sam Tsui, Max Schneider and KRNFX. Dancers are also making a splash at this year’ FanFest, with Marquese Scott (WHZGUD2) and Poppin John ready to have the crowd up on their feet.
A select few ticket-holders will also get the chance to meet their favourite YouTuber at the event, which is being held at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. The event will be hosted by former Much VJ and Hot for Food vlogger, Lauren Toyota, along with fashion, lifestyle and comedy vlogger Eva Gutowski of My Life as Eva
