The event will also showcase local creators such as Julynn Lau and Daniel Ron.
Fans can look forward to catching regional content creators and rising K-pop girl group Billlie at the YouTube Fanfest on Nov 11, held at Marina Bay Sands (MBS). The event will also be livestreamed globally on the YouTube Fanfest channel.
Held in partnership with Singapore Tourism Board, Marina Bay Sands, and Singapore Airlines, the show will be hosted by local creator Annette Lee, Prajakta Koli (MostlySane) from India, and Georgia McCudden (Georgia Productions) from Australia.
Last year’s edition of the YouTube Fanfest was held online, and was broadcasted from Japan, South Korea, Australia and the Philippines. This edition of the event will mark its first physical return since the pandemic.
It will start off with a red carpet event at 5.30pm, where creators will be interviewed by the hosts. Fans can get to see them up close and personal at the MBS event plaza.
A total of 18 regional creators from Indonesia, India, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, and local creators will perform live onstage during the event. Some of the creators include Zermatt Neo, Ricis Official and CarryMinati from Singapore, Indonesia and India respectively.
Billlie, a South Korean girl group, will also take the stage. Their music video for the most recent lead single Ring Ma Bell (What a Wonderful World) garnered over 26 million views. The song is part of their third EP titled The Billage of Perception: Chapter Two.
Creators specialising in various topics, such as gaming, beauty, food and comedy, will also share their content in a series of cross market collaborations. New and established creators alike will participate in challenges and showcase their glow ups, fun food mash ups and comedy skits.
There will also be virtual meet and greets with these creators after the event from Nov 17 to 21. More information about these meet and greets will be revealed through the creators’ social media pages.
Fans who wish to attend the live event can sign up for tickets on PouchNation on Oct 13 from 10am onwards. Tickets are free but are subject to the limited seating available at the venue.
