Now in its fourth year in town, YouTube FanFest, co-presented by Globe Telecom and Vivo, is an exclusive live show showcasing the biggest YouTube stars from the Philippines and around the world, and a festival connecting them with fans #IRL.
This year’s stellar line up features a mix of talented international creators: Matt Steffanina, Sungha Jung, Merrell Twins, The Dominic Show and local sensations Janina Vela, Mikey Bustos, Ranz Kyle and Niana Guerrero, Wil Dasovich, Alodia Gosiengfiao, Michelle Dy, Pamela Swing, AC Bonifacio and Renee Dominique.

The Filipino YouTube community is on a historical rise. Today, the Philippines has over 230 channels that reached 100K subscribers, and more than 15 channels with 1M+ subscribers. That is a meteoric jump from just 70 channels with 100K subscribers and 8 channels with 1M+ subscribers that YouTube announced last year.
“We’re delighted to host YouTube FanFest again in the Philippines for the fourth time to celebrate this new generation of YouTube stars. Started in 2015, The YouTube community here has turned a simple tweet it into a movement. We love coming here because of Filipino fans’ energy and enthusiasm, and to see international creators and homegrown Filipino talents shine on stage.” said Chris Schremp, YouTube’s Director of Global Online Partnerships.
