For those of you who don't know YouTube is a big part of my life. I do not make videos (maybe one day) but have been part of the lovely community for about 6 years. There are people on the site that I have grown up watching and have helped me through my difficult teenage years. I have made some great friends through the site and gatherings.
On the 17th and 18th of August was the biggest UK YouTube gathering organised by the lovely Tom, Liam, Luke, Dave, and Jazza.
Aside from seeing a lot of friends I also got to see a lot of my favourite YouTubers perform. This included comedy acts from Bing, WOTO, Crabstickz, and Jack and Dean and music from Orla Gartland, Harry Hudson Taylor, and Hank Green. There were also some great panels about YouTubey things, my favourite of which was the Becoming YouTube panel because that documentary thing is fantastic!

I love going to YouTube events as there is always such a great atmosphere and everyone is so happy and friendly. I had the most incredible time this year seeing friends from all over the country (some who I have not seen since last years event), making new friends, and meeting these content creators who I have a lot of respect for.
I just want to say a massive thanks to the organisers. It was a great weekend and I wish I could be back having all the fun times in London.
See you soon x
