The original VidCon – an annual conference in Anaheim, California – has been running since 2010.
International versions began in 2017. VidCon Australia will return to Melbourne for its second year this August, while two previous European VidCon events were held in Amsterdam.
Few details have been announced so far, and no information on tickets is currently available.
