This might just be the coolest form of Internet addiction therapy.

The inaugural YouTube FanFest is back in their home country Singapore for its third year since 2013, having started in Singapore and since then expanding to Japan, India, Manila, Thailand, Australia and even Canada.

This year’s show features a dynamic mix of over 30 widely popular music, comedy, and fashion content creators — the largest FanFest crew to date.

So what is YouTube FanFest all about? Simply put, it’s just an excuse for YouTube stars to meet their fans via an official event. These online celebrities have been working hard at creating meaningful content for us, and fans can now share in their love for what they do.

This year, the YouTube FanFest is back in Singapore with more YouTubers than ever, including new faces and a new format for a weekend of live shows, fireside chats, academies, creative workshops, Meet & Greets and a huge amount of fun in an exclusive, intimate setting.

At the press conference a day before the start of YouTube Fan Fest, we discuss the importance of the audience in making YouTube videos. YouTube audiences are different from any other media audience, because they very actively engage with the content. Liking, sharing and commenting on social channels beyond YouTube is just an example of how far a single video on YouTube can travel.
