Tickets for YouLive 2014 have gone back on sale, after sales were temporarily suspended last week.
After speaking to event organisers Jey Worldwide, ticket managers TicketBud said they were satisfied that YouLive 2014 will go ahead.
“We have spoken with the organizer of YouLive and have received proof that the event has been booked, and talent has been booked. We contacted the venue to confirm this information and they have done so. We have re-allowed the organizer to sell tickets to this event.”
TicketBud’s statement has been issued just a week after the initial removal of ticket sales. The Brighton based convention is due to take place from 25th-26th October and claims to be the biggest UK YouTube event of the year. The event has been surrounded in controversy and many of the original line-up including Alfie Deyes, Oli White and Sam King have pulled out – despite some still being listed as attending on the YouLive 2014 official website.
I'm not going to be attending @YouLive2014 anymore, I'm super sorry if you bought tickets in hope to see me x

Despite several attempts to make contact, Jey Worldwide informed TenEighty UK that a representative was not available to speak to us about the event. What are your thoughts on the event? Did you buy a ticket and are you still planning to attend? Let us know in the comments.
