Joey Graceffa, Michael Buckley and Adam Waithe have been removed from the YouLive line-up.
The YouTube vlog stars have been removed from the event’s website after Joey Graceffa stated on Twitter that he will not be attending.
Hey guys I am NOT going to @YouLive2014 So do not buy tickets… Not sure why they have me on their website as attending.

The newest addition to the online video event line-up is German YouTuber Natalie Stiegler. But her network, Management Live, told TenEighty: “We decided to cancel Natalie Stiegler’s appearance for YouLive 2014 and have deleted all the Tweets which had something to do with the event”.
YouLive is yet to announce this line-up change.
The event is due to take place on 25 – 26 October 2014 at The Hilton Brighton Metropole. Tickets sales had previously suspended by ticket management website TicketBud.
So seeing as questions are starting to arise again, just to confirm I will NOT be attending Youlive this year, I want nothing to do it.

TenEighty has contacted Jey Worldwide, the management company behind YouLive 2014, but they have yet to comment on the current situation of the event and their recent line-up changes.
James Yeates (YouLive "organiser") is a convicted fraudster. Also pretended to be various YouTuber's representation (ITATube confirmed).
