UVLD’s Jeff Nellis was tapped for the second year to light the Vidcon show at the Anaheim Convention Center Arena this June, with Kevin Lawson on site to execute the show. The show is a celebration of online and YouTube personalities and is jam-packed with interviews, music and dance performances, comedy, and a final night celebration to close out the festivities.
The line up of entertainment included a showcase of NBC’s World of Dance, YouTube icons The Try Guys and Markiplier, PRETTYMUCH, Fikshun, Matt Steffanina, Jojo Siwa, Dytto and Cyrus, among many others. YouTube sponsors the event, and it was guided to success by producers Gerardo Lopez and Rodney Acda.
Staffing included production electrician Christopher Nye, assistant electrician Dave Haar and technical direction by Nathan Parsell. Lighting equipment was supplied by PRG with thanks to Eric Hanson and Jon Morrell. Special thanks to Abigail Homes of NYXdesign, who served as lighting designer for the YouTube Onstage event, also in the arena, and was a terrific partner on the event.
