If you haven’t purchased your plane tickets yet you’re in luck! VidCon has managed to snag some discounts for flights. American Airlines is offering a 5% discount and United Airlines is offering 2% - 10%! Go check out what airports are nearby and book those tickets!
VidCon is a nonstop 72 hour event.Kidding! Clicked the post button too soon. I would say 9am-10pm (ish) but really though the party don’t stop at 10pm
Is anyone looking for a roomie? I’m super excited!! I have a friend that may/may not be coming with me but I’m definitely going. :) I’m nice, I promise. I’m really looking to make friends. If you are too, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org !!!
Does anyone need a hotel room for vidcon this year? I need one more person to stay with me to make the prices not so ridiculous. Please? it would really help so I don’t have to pay like 200 bucks and it would make the prices a lot lower. PLEASE.
Do we have any parents following this blog that have been to VidCon? It would be great to hear some feedback about VidCon and what your thoughts are on letting your kids attend a con.
We figured that, if we can bring together feedback we can make a page for parents that would like to know more about VidCon from another parent’s perspective. Heck, it could be great if this could be added on the official VidCon page.
reblogs for signal boost?
Ah, it’s an issue a lot of us face. I remember I was 19 when the first VidCon was announced and it was tough for me to convince my parents (my mother) to let me go.
You gotta demonstrate to your parents that are you responsible. Draw up a plan about how much it will cost and show them how much money you’ve saved up on your own. Get good grades in school, do you chores on time, etc.
Sometimes what concerns parents the most about letting their children go to VidCon alone is who they’re staying with. If that’s the case invite your parents (or one of them) to go with you. A lot people bring their parents (once I saw a grandparent) to VidCon. You can pitch it to them as a family vacation to Disneyland that starts off with you going to a two day con.
It sounds like you have the time to show them how responsible you can be so best of luck and hope you can join us next year.
Well I gotta say VidCon was a little more organized in terms of where events were held at. However in Playlist’s defense they were actually much more organized this year than they were the previous year. The convention is a fairly large area, (much larger than Playlist) but it’s easy to get from A to B.
Expohall is on the bottom floor, the main stage is off to the right of the expohall and panels and discussions were all upstairs.
About the Expohall at VidCon verse the one at Playlist. The expohall at VidCon is so much larger than what was at Playlist, so that being said a lot of the booths at PL were fairly close to each other making it seem like it was a mess. VC’s expohall has a lot of space so everything well spaced out for you to see and to get through.
As far as getting cut off in line it’s my understanding that after a while they’ll stop letting people get in line and just let the line finish off. Only reason to me that they would cut off the lines short is if the YouTuber has to be on stage.
In all honestly you should go and experience VidCon yourself, it’s the best way you can find out how it’s like.
I receive about five messages a week asking me when the next round will be announced. I am as excited as the rest of you and you can probably look forward to the next round being announced in two weeks or so. We have one final round of submissions we are looking at and then we will set up the details for the next phase. Thank you all for waiting patiently and for supporting this project.

There are a lot of booths.
There’s the DFTBA booth that have Pizza John, WheezyWaiter and Elmify shirts.
TableTop had a booth last year, some people got the chance to play with Wil Wheaton himself!
There are booths that show you editing software, or cameras that shoot in super slow motion! The best ones are the ones that give out free candy. :3
I’m so excited :D Who’s going. I want to make some friends before going. Also, anyone need a roommate?
