Videoink: Lilly Singh Headlining Free YouTube Fan Fest in Toronto for 15,000 Fans

Fans who attended VidCon in Anaheim in June could’ve saved their money and spent it on airfare to Canada to attend YouTube FanFest, which is expected to draw 15,000 fans to the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto on Aug. 13.

The scope YouTube FanFest is smaller than that of VidCon, which has three days of panels for industryites, creators and fans alike, as well as performances, booths and meet and greets. But unlike VidCon, which can cost several hundred dollars to attend, YouTube FanFest is free.

Hosted by former MuchMusic personality and Hot for Food YouTube creator Lauren Toyota, the YouTube-sponsored event will be headlined by Toronto native (and current Los Angeles resident) Lilly Singh, who will perform her new single “Voices,” which has generated more than two-million views in less than a week
