Summer in the city is a massive youtube event that happens every year in London and this year it was held at the Excel centre from the 12-14th of August!! I have never been before so this year I bought weekend tickets for my friend Ansha and I to head up to London and experience the amazingness that is Summer in the City 🙂
On the 13th of August I met my friend at Victoria Station and we got the tube and the DLR to the London Excel Centre which is where the event was held. We got there and showed our tickets which were exchanged for some really cool Purple wristbands 🙂 We then wandered round the Exhibition area where there were funfair rides, Merch stands and an open mic stage 🙂 Whilst wandering round the Exhibition area we spotted Hazel Hayes and Musical Bethan (Bethan Leadley) so went over and said hi and got selfies 🙂
After the exhibition hall we grabbed some lunch and headed through to the Meet and Greet hall as we had a scheduled meet and greet with Dodie Clark and Evan Edinger.
After our meet and greet we went to Panel room two where we saw a Panel about the Creater/Viewer divide which was really enlightening and interesting 🙂 after that we went back through the exhibition hall stopping to take some photos whilst on our way to the main stage xx
Once we found the main stage we found a seat and also grabbed some dinner whilst watching Bars and Melody 🙂 after Bars and Melody there was the Youtube Awards and then Jon Cozart, Musical Bethan and Dodie Clark all performed in succession and were all amazing 🙂 Jon cozart performed After Ever After which was a dream come true and also performed an awkward duet with Dodie 🙂
On Sunday 14th of August we decided to go up to the Excel Centre slightly later as we were both rather tired from the day before 🙂 when we arrived we grabbed some lunch and then headed through the exhibition hall stopping to go on one of the fairground rides which had me crying with laughter 🙂 We then headed to the meet and greet hall for our official meet and greet with Jon Cozart.
After our meet and greet with Jon we sat and watched the SITC awards on the main stage which was really fun 🙂 the awards show went on for a while so we then headed home stopping to say hi to the Mandeville sisters on the way 🙂 They were both lovely and spent ages talking to everyone who came up to them ❤
Overall it was a fantastic weekend which I will never forget ❤ Thank you to all the youtubers I met this weekend and to my friend Ansha for keeping me company and for stopping me from being too much of an awkward fangirl 😛
Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to SITC or a similar youtube event and if so what your experience was like ❤
