YouTube duo Dan Howell and Phil Lester have officially joined the Featured Creators roster for this year’s VidCon.
Howell and Lester, who’ve made a name for themselves as YouTube’s preeminent introverts, each have their own channel (6.4 million subscribers and 4.1 million, respectively) as well as a shared channel, DanAndPhilGAMES (3.1 million). Collectively, they earn tens of millions of views each month. In 2016, Howell and Lester’s first live tour was one of the largest ever undertaken by YouTubers, and was so popular it ended up generating a YouTube Premium-produced documentary. (The pair also released a film, produced by BBC Studios, about last year’s live tour, Interactive Introverts.)
At VidCon, which runs July 10 to 13, the duo will interact with fans in a joint meet-and-greet session on July 13 in the event’s Instagram Meet & Greet Hall.
They’re also each attending individual events. Lester will participate in a Q&A session July 12, and Howell will attend VidCon’s annual Night of Awesome, a closeout bash where Featured Creators perform onstage for the convention’s attendees.
In addition to announcing Howell and Lester as Featured Creators, VidCon revealed it’s extended the submission date for its Meet & Greet Lottery. At VidCon, meet-and-greets are open only to attendees with Community ($150) and Industry ($750) tickets, and they must enter a lottery for the chance to attend a meet-and-greet. The lottery can be found here, and is now open through June 9. Winners will be notified June 14.
Other featured creators joining Howell and Lester include Tana Mongeau, Brent Rivera, David Dobrik, Simply Nailogical, Andrea Russett, Rhett & Link, The Try Guys, Kristen McAtee, and Laura Prepon.
