This is the third year Youtube Fanfest has arrived in Manila! As most of you may have known, I love watching youtube and have a fair amount of Youtubers I love and admire. Sadly when the first YTFFPH happened (Jaspoli – Joe, Caspar & Oli) were invited, good timing, self, and so I didn’t get to go and there goes my fangirling heart. I was living in LA at that time and I saw on twitter tickets were sold out in a minute! The venue was just in a function room of a 5-star hotel, meaning less fans would be able to get access and see the creators invited.
Second year of the YTFFPH was amazing! Connor Franta, Alex Wassabi, Tanner Patrick, Tiffany Alvord, AJ Rafael, Tyler Ward and The Filharmonics were invited (plus a lot of local creators) the festival started at 09:00 am and ended at 10:00 pm. When I heard the singers started to sing, they are most definitely better to listen live! The show was epic and so fun, the only downside of it is the food were so limited but the festival & activities and the live show was amazing!
Third Youtube Fanfest happened on May 12, 2017 there were new creators invited; Wil Dasovich, Janina Vela (they were only invited to talk at the festival last year so them making the main stage was a proud moment). It was so surreal to see and watch Alex Wassabi and LaurDIY to perform their single called “My Side”. Even if they said it was just a joke-kind of song they did but it was so cute and I’m really glad Lauren joined the YTFFPH this year. I remember she wanted to go so bad last year as Alex and Aaron tried to eat the balut (a Filipino delicacy). The host for this year is Mikey Bustos, who is a Canadian-Filipino youtuber and is currently residing in Manila now, he has this amazing energy and makes the show for this year energetic and amazing.
How were your youtube fanfest experiences? Let me know, I’d love to hear and exchange experience with you guys. Meeting the people you look up to and give you inspiration is an awesome feeling, hope its the same with you. Thanks for reading my blog post.
