Playlist Live 2015, Washington DC – Preview

Playlist Live is only one month away and we’re finding it hard to contain our excitement!

Widely labelled as one of the biggest YouTube gatherings in the world, many of the biggest internet personalities are expected to attend Playlist Live 2015. Because of this, we couldn’t resist putting together a preview of what you can expect at this year’s event.


The convention will be taking place in Washington D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and will be held between 4th-6th September.

For those concerned with the change in location, the popular gathering will be back at its usual venue at Orlando in April 2016. Even so, Washington is proving just as popular, with tickets selling out fast for Playlist Live.

This year’s three-day event will include a Business day on the Friday, followed by the ‘main attractions’ on Saturday and Sunday.


Playlist Live visitors will be able to experience meet-ups and live performances at the expo hall, which will also host sponsors and exhibitions.

There will be a variety of Q&A’s and live discussions hosted by popular YouTubers taking place on the main stage. Previous Playlist Live events have included appearances from online stars such as Dan & Phil, Tyler Oakley, Alfie Deyes, Zoella, TomSka and Jenna Marbles.

The Playlist Live Business Day is ideal for those interested in learning more about the industry of YouTube, whether that means growing a channel or working with YouTube within another profession. Programming includes informative panel events, as well as talks and presentations from industry experts.


As with any YouTube gathering, many fans in attendance will be hoping to meet their favourite YouTubers in person.

Usually, attendees are required to reserve their meet-up spots online, so if you plan to attend we advise you to keep an eye on the Playlist Live website and Twitter to know when you can start booking. You can find out more about the Playlist Live meet-up guidelines here.

Playlist Live has already started to announce some of the guests that can be expected, with names including Alphacat, Jacksfilms, Jonathan Paula, Mazzi Maz, Michael Buckley, Mikey Bolts, Savannah Grace, Steve Zaragoza, TomSka and many more.
