Don’t tell us it’s almost over! We refuse to believe it! Relive Sunday at Summer in the City 2016 with a look at some of our best photos from the day…
Traditionally, Sunday begins in a more subdued manner, as we all recover from Saturday’s antics (and a fair few hangovers for those lucky enough to be invited to all the parties!). Sunday is no lesser day though, with plenty of meet-and-greets, main stage acts, and panels to dive into… so let’s DIVE IN!
Well someone didn’t get that subdued memo, huh? Brandon Rogers, in character as Grandpa, decided to get Sunday going by running through the lobby in his underwear. No comment.
Kicking off proceedings in Panel Room 3 was the Animation panel featuring Ed Stockham, Matt Ley, Chloe Dungate, Maddy Vian, Jamie Spicer-Lewis, Edd Bowley, Anthony ‘Kreid’ Price, and chair Fawn Mead. Want to find out what conclusions they drew from their discussion? Check out our recap here or view more images here.
Meanwhile, across the way, the Creative Process panel was taking place in Panel Room 1. It featured Jack Howard, Lucy Moon, Niki and Sammy Albon, Vincent Kavanagh, and Paul Neafcy discussing how they come up their ideas and execute them. You can check out our recap here, and further photos here.
Over at the meet-and-greets, organiser Tom Burns was taking a break from keeping everything running to meet some fans with spouse Jamie Jo. We see that walkie-talkie though – he’s ready to jump back into action at a moment’s notice if anything goes wrong without him. For more pictures of meet-and-greets, click here.
Did you fancy promoting your channel? Sending some words of encouragement to a stranger? Drawing a meme? Then this wall in the Creator Village was the place for you, where attendees could put up whatever they wanted for all to read. For more images from around the Creator Village, click here.
The Short Films panel featured Bertie Gilbert, Sammy Paul, Tim H, Ewan McIntosh, Ciaran OBrien, Hazel Hayes, and Elliot Gough, and discussed, well, all things film that are short. At a total of four, it also won the “Most TenEighty Cover Stars on a Single Panel” award of 2016, so congratulations! Read our recap of this panel here, or check out more images here.
Who’s that handsome fellow? Lou Folkes, of course. He sees us. He knows what’s going on.
Across the hall in the meet-and-greets, Helen Anderson was showing her skills as queen of selfies with her fans. The angle, the pose, the face; she’s got it all down. For more pictures of meet-and-greets, click here.
After a few scandals in the community, the Positive Pranking panel was here to talk about how things should be done. It feature Eman Kellam, Mike and Jacob Trueman, and Paul Parker from Where’s My Challenge. You can view more images of this here.
The Midnight Beast were everywhere all weekend, and that included Panel Room 3 for an exclusive screening and subsequent Q&A. Where do they get their energy from? Tell us your secrets! More images of this here.
Waterstone’s were just one of the brands peddling their wares in the Creator Village. They shared a space with the Penguin Platform, where you could enter a competition to win the chance to record a whole audiobook for Penguin. All you had to do was record a short sample segment there and then. How cool is that? For more images from around the Creator Village, click here.
SPOTTED: A Callum McGinley getting his selfie on in Creator Village. Damn, a lot of selfies were taken this weekend, weren’t they?
Look at these funnies being all funny. The Comedy Online panel featured the likes of Jack Dean, Gabbie Hanna, Jacob and Mike Trueman, Amelia and Grace Mandeville, and Jimmy Hill. Want our verdict on how funny it was? Check out this report. Or if you want more pictures, click here.
The lovely Laci Green was present at Summer in the City for a second year. We’re so happy she came back! Here she is during one of her meet-and-greet sessions. For more pictures of meet-and-greets, click here.
We are so proud of Taha Khan, who hosted the Ethnicity and Diversity panel this year, widely considered one of the standout moments of the weekend. It featured the likes of Nathan Zed, Jana Dam, Suli Breaks, Eman Kellam, and Scola Dondo. Read all about it here, or check out more images here.
If you couldn’t tell here at TenEighty, we’re massive, massive fans of Nathan and were honoured to have him in our country. That’s why we’ve thrown in ANOTHER image of the Ethnicity and Diversity panel, as we simply cannot get enough of him!
Hats off to Dodie Clark, pictured her at her second meet-and-greet. Her schedule across the weekend was so jam-packed, us mere mortals would probably have collapsed into a heap on the floor and refused to move. But our Dodie is a trouper; she completely stepped up and thrived.
We love this snap of Melanie Murphy and her cheeky grin. This was the Online Safety panel, which was all about dealing with trolls and bullying online. It also featured the likes of Helen Anderson, Alex Bertie, Beckii Cruel, and Laura Bubble. You can read all about it here, or view more images here.
The lovely Luke Cutforth came to the TenEighty stand to sign copies of our 2015 magazine. We really appreciate the support of creators like Luke who still come back to give us a boost every now and then. Thank you so much! We have more images of this signing here.
Ben Brown here, trying to figure out the point of everything. Well, not quite. What’s The Point of YouTube? was a panel on the main stage and featured the likes of Adrian Bliss, Steve Booker and Suli Breaks. Read all about it here, and see more images here.
Backstage, it all got a bit much for Hedy Clark, who reverted to the tried-and-tested childhood pastime of sitting in a cardboard box. We wish we’d joined you, Hedy, we really do. For more images from around the Creator Village, click here.
Luke Cutforth and Tom Ridgewell here, looking pensive as they wait their turn to respond to a burning question. The Fandom Panel took place on the main stage and also featured Ricky Dillon, Jamie Jo, Anna Brisbin, and Evan Edinger. Read all about it here.
After a killing it on main stage on Saturday, Jon Cozart was all about the meet-and-greets on Sunday. We loved this picture because of the double-grab hug. The boy has reach! We have more pictures of this meet-and-greet – just click here.
The Musicians on YouTube panel this year featured a wealth of creators who have very different experiences of the industry, from the likes of Dodie Clark and Tessa Violet, to the Midnight Beast boys and Toby Randall. It was chaired by Benedict Townsend. Read all about it here.
SPOTTED: QT-pies Savannah Brown and Bertie Gilbert taking a QT-pie selfie with a fan in the Creator Village. Stop being so cute. You two are meant to be serious and brooding! For more images from around the Creator Village, click here.
Beckie J Brown was also a very busy bee over the weekend. Appearing on a wealth of panels and spending most of Sunday at her meet-and-greets.
Here at TenEighty, we cannot stop raving about the Smaller YouTubers panel. Every year, it’s the perfect opportunity to discover new YouTubers and dig deep into tricky topics which larger creators often shy away from. This year it featured Sam Saffold-Geri, Will Carne, Orla Ainsworth, Ellie Wilkinson, Theo Ogden, and Aiesha Ijewere. It was chaired by Mary Akemon. Read all about it here, and look at more images here.
Kaya Lili, Melanie Murphy, and Riyadh Khalaf teamed up to take on the meet-and-greets. But honestly, the best thing about this image is the fan, that dress, that neckless, the lipstick – you are on point! For more pictures of meet-and-greets, click here.
The first ever Summer in the City Awards took place this year, with categories rewarding things like vlogging, songs, short films, and community spirit. Find out all the winners here, and check out more images here.
BOOM! The Midnight Beast hit the main stage! We told you these boys were non-stop this weekend. Seriously, those energy reserves. We could hardly stand up by this point, let along jump. They are ridiculous and perfect at the same time.
Who else thinks Hannah Witton is serving us some Hermoine Granger realness in this snap? But rather than cursing us into next week, she was instead just dancing her arse off during the Midnight Beast set. We love moments like this, when everyone is truly losing themselves and having as much fun as possible.
Ashley Horne from the Midnight Beast getting intense. Either this was an incredibly high note or a powerful roar, either way, it was vein-popping.
What’s this Hazel Hayes is an honourary member of the Midnight Beast? Yep, Hazel joined the boys and hit a few high notes of her own because she’s BOSS like that.
Stefan Abingdon absolutely worked the crowd from all angles, even down in the pit! We honestly loved the Midnight Beast’s set, and we’ve got loads and loads of pictures of it, which you can check out here and here.
High-waisted metallic trousers, check. Complete-and-utter YouTube anthems, check. Punk rock attitude that can slay a mile off, check. Headlining the main stage was none other than Emma Blackery, and boy was it epic.
We love this image as it’s so in-the-moment, and there was a hell of a lot of headbanging throughout Emma’s set. We’ve got plenty more images of this for you to check out, just click here.
The Summer in the City organisers closed the main stage, and honestly what a ride it was. Thank you to Tom Burns, Dave Bullas, Liam Dryden, and Luke Cutforth for putting this amazing event on (and Jazza John, who isn’t seen in this image but is massively important too!). We have more images of this here. We love you guyyyyssss <3333
