Summer in the City is, yet again, over for another year.
We’re feeling quite sad about it, to be honest. As with previous years, we had a lot of laughs, sold some magazines, hung out with our favourite creators and attended many a party. We’re not going to lie, we’re pretty tired, but we’d happily push through the exhaustion and do it all over again. As with many, it’s the highlight of our year.
To celebrate all things Summer in the City, we thought we’d write up a special edition of Tweets of the Week, centered around the UK’s largest YouTube gathering. From tweets about the live performances to those surrounding the panels, we’ve rounded up the best (and funniest) from the weekend.
Summer in the City news so far:
— Luke Cutforth 🌊✨ (@LukeCutforth) August 10, 2018
While we felt this year’s SitC was the best yet, we still are very upset over the lack of dodgems… Luke Cutforth, how could you have failed us so?
(We will forgive you if the dodgems return next year.)
Post-SitC voice loss
my voice is going after yelling so much at summer in the city but it does mean that i can sing leonard cohen songs in an appropriately low and husky voice
— silvie 🔆 (@smileysilvie) August 13, 2018
Silvie Ruscombe-King isn’t the only one who’s able to perfectly sing Leonard Cohen songs post-SitC. We vote all those in attendance record a cover album before we can no longer hit those low and husky notes.
The lighting tho
hey alexa can you make the lighting at summer in the city better please
— Sam Carr (@saamcarr) August 12, 2018
We don’t think Alexa heard you, Sam Carr. Maybe you should have tried asking Google?
The grind never stops
I'm bringing my 22 Inch iMac to a my Hotel Room at Summer in the City so that I can Drop a Banger & while I'm there lmao grind never stops 😂
— Morgz (@MorgzHudson) August 10, 2018
It’s true, YouTubers never stop the daily grind. Whether they’re vlogging or, like Morgan Hudson, working on a banger, they never stop! (And we truly appreciate it.)

Now THIS is a throwback, Jack Edwards!
I am not funny
I’m no longer going to be on the Comedy panel as I have just found out that I am not funny.
Please respect my privacy as I process this news. @10000Hawks has kindly offered to step in and moderate instead.

We could have told you this eons ago, Taha Khan.
Everyone knows Jake Pemberton is one of THE funniest YouTubers on the platform.
What happens when you take advice from Disney
After venturing beyond zone 9… we are back! This is why I shouldn’t hear Go the Distance sung live, I take it too literally 😂
— Connor Ward (@ConnorWardUK) August 12, 2018
Now we know what happens when you take Hercules‘ Go The Distance literally. We’re glad you managed to make it back to SitC, Connor Ward!
The opening act was better
my friend had a cute performance right after me pic.twitter.com/9zRKsWrR83

The rapid decay of their mortal bodies
If you're upset you didn't get to meet your favourite youtuber at SitC just remember that as time marches on so does the rapid decay of their mortal bodies. Each year it becomes harder to withstand the thousand-mawed beast. If I was there I'd shatter like a christmas bauble.
— Jamie_Spicer-_Lewis (@RageNineteen) August 12, 2018
Leave it to Jamie Spicer-Lewis to explain why our favourite YouTubers are unable to do endless meet and greets. The rapid decay of their mortal bodies really is a shame.
The perfect tribute
Guys. Here’s the deal.
2019 is the 30th anniversary of Janet’s Rhythm Nation album. It influenced an entire genre and it’s still mega-relevant today.
So I reckon @SummerInTheCity should let me do a tribute performance on the main stage next year. Go on. Go oooooon.
— Daniel J. Layton (@DanielJLayton) August 13, 2018
We would pay top dollar to see Daniel J. Layton perform Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation album, complete with background dancers, flashy costumes and some damn good vibes.
What do we have to do to make this a reality, SitC?
So there you have it…
Our favourite tweets about this year’s Summer in the City gathering! Is it just us or did they make you wish you could relive the weekend over again? If only it occurred more than once a year! Hmm, we wonder if we could convince organisers to change that…
