Six-year-old Playlist Live, the largest online video convention on the East Coast, kicks off this morning from Orlando, Florida. But fans who didn’t nab tickets can watch the event unfold from the comfort of home thanks to a 'Virtual Experience' that will stream the entirety of the weekend for free.
The stream will offer spectators choices between different events happening concurrently, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpses. Playlist unveiled the livestreaming feature last year, and this year, the event’s founder, Alex Tchekmeian, told Tubefilter that creators like What’s Trending and HollywireTV plan to syndicate goings-on directly to their YouTube channels.
Business Day begins this morning, and later this afternoon, Dan & Phil will kick off their U.S. tour, The Amazing Tour Is Not On Fire. PrankvsPrank, Charles Trippy, Jenna Marbles, Ed Bassmaster, Jenn McAllister, Alex Wasabi, and Macy Kate will also appear throughout the weekend, and on Saturday evening, AwesomenessTV will host a pool party complete with a fireworks and laser show.
