Rooster Teeth-run RTX has announced its first powerhouse guests for this year’s convention: YouTube stars Philip DeFranco and ProZD.

DeFranco runs the daily YouTube-based Philip DeFranco Show, where he takes a look at current events on YouTube and beyond. He’s amassed more than 6.4 million subscribers on the platform. ProZD (aka SungWon Cho) is a professional voice actor who is responsible for characters in popular shows like Red vs. Blue and Crunchyroll’s Anime Crimes Division. On YouTube, where he has 1.8 million subscribers, he’s best known for his excellently nerdy comedy skits — and has also appeared a number of times on Rooster Teeth channel Achievement Hunter (1.6 million subscribers).

Last year’s RTX, which brought in popular YouTube stars Boogie2988, Smosh Games, and Jessica Nigri as guests, saw more than 65,000 attendees, Rooster Teeth said in a press release. Presumably, fans planning to head to Austin, Tx., for this year’s convention can expect a similarly hefty turnout. (Rooster Teeth also hosts RTX iterations in Sydney, Australia, and London each year.)

Rooster Teeth also gave a first glimpse at RTX 2019’s programming, which will include a panel about the Rooster Teeth podcast network, as well as podcasts about a number of the studio’s original productions: upcoming mecha anime series gen:LOCK, long-running hit anime RWBY, animated series Camp Camp, comedy show Arizona Circle, and more yet to be announced.

On top of all that, RTX announced that it’s opened early bird ticket sales. Folks interested in attending July 5-7 in Austin can now snag single-day tickets for $42.50 and three-day tickets for $99 — although judging by a followup announcement on RTX‘s Twitter account, tickets won’t be around much longer.

All tickets will go up in price beginning Feb. 4. More special guests and programming will be revealed in the coming months on the Rooster Teeth and RTX Twitter accounts.
