YouTube Fanfest 2016!

Posted on

Kianna has been dying to go to the YouTube FanFest ever since she first heard about it. She wasn’t able to attend last year but this year she was in for a surprise! I reached out to my friend Christian Melanie Lee of Manila Concert Junkies and lo and behold we scored invites to the party. Melanie wanted it to be a surprise for Kianna so she only found out she was going when we were already on our way to the World Trade Center where it was held this year. Check out the video way down below to check out her reaction and to see some highlights of the show.

From last year’s venue, The Marriot to this year’s World Trade Center you can tell it became a huge success. This year’s FanFest featured 13 popular YouTube personalities. The event is totally free BUT the tickets went so fast. Believe it or not the 2nd sign up had the tickets being marked as reserved in less than a minute! Unbelievable!

Kianna was there to catch Connor Franta whose focus is lifestyle vlogs and short films. I couldn’t believe (or maybe I’m just too old!) at how much adulation was in the air for these personalities. The moment their names were announced everyone was screaming (it seemed like bloody murder to me!).

The YouTube FanFest shows just how far reaching these personalities are and the kind of influence they have on the youth today. What I liked about it was that the chosen personalities all had a positive impression which is important especially for those who are on YouTube (what seems like 24/7) most of the day.

Although these kinds of events are obviously NOT my thing, to help Kianna attend was one of the best moments.

She was starstruck and happy to see Connor Franta. Aside from the obvious reasons that he’s funny and cute he’s an inspiration.

  1. Wow, I didn’t know there was such a thing! Looks like a blast. I know some of those YouTubers are as famous as movie starts these days!

  2. This looks like such a cool event. I’ve really got into Youtube in the last few years and would love to visit something like this one day.

  3. YouTube Fanfest looks like an interesting event, but I live all the way in New Zealand so either I have to save up or they have to come to me ^_^

  4. Never heard of the fanfest but it looks like you both had a great time. It’s amazing how much influence you tubers have!

  5. I’m so jealous, I love watching YouTube and I absolutely know half of the YouTubers. I’m such a fangirl for few of the YouTubers. Connor Franta was there, omg.

  6. What a great event, that is amazing that you were able to give her such a great surprise. Youtube is a great forum for talented entertainers to be found.
