Gavin Free from The Slow Mo Guys will be there, along with a slew of yet-to-be-announced guests.
Gus Sorola, co-founder and executive producer at Rooster Teeth, expressed excitement about the event, stating: “We’ve grown RTX from a 600-person event in a field to an attendance of 60,000 in Austin and international events in Sydney and now London. We’re going to drink all your tea and eat all your tikka masala, so get ready London!”
Bethany Feinstein, Director of Events at Rooster Teeth, added: “The Rooster Teeth community in the UK is large and passionate. We’re excited to expand our presence to London with this RTX, our first European RTX. RTX brings Rooster Teeth influencers, YouTubers, video games, and the best of the internet to one place and we can’t wait to start that party in London.”
Tickets go on sale in March, and will be available from rtxlondon.com. Applications to be a Guardian at the event are already open from the same page.
More announcements about programming and guests will be made soon.
We don’t blame you! How about a YouTube-based internet convention this time?
