For the fifth year running, YouTube is planning to stream coverage of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), one of the gaming industry’s flagship trade events.
The stream, titled E3 Live On YouTube, will be hosted by gaming industry luminary Geoff Keighley (pictured above), who is also notably the creator of The Game Awards. YouTube’s E3 stream will kick off on Sunday at 1 pm ET at YouTube.com/Gaming, and will comprise 10 hours of nonstop coverage, with appearances by top gaming stars.
Creators and celebrities slated to grace the stream in person — which will broadcast from a custom studio in downtown Los Angeles — will include British band Bastille, Felicia Day, Lindsey Stirling, and famed DJ Marshmello, who will preview his next single, “Rescue Me,” as well as break news about his upcoming album, Joytime III. At 2:30 pm ET, Keighley will host an exclusive interview with Google exec Phil Harrison covering the company’s new cloud gaming platform, Stadia.
Other top YouTube stars who will appear on the stream from their respective locations across the globe include: JackSepticEye, Markiplier, Pokimane, Nick Eh 30, Myth, Willyrex, ErinPlays (YouTube’s first ‘Gaming Creator On The Rise’, a new initiative to highlight emerging stars), Lachlan, and CaptainSparklez. Additional guests will be announced in coming days.
