Produced by Branded Ltd., and Sponsored by 5-Star, Sprite, Hero and Maruti NEXA, the 2018 edition of the YouTube Fanfest will be the biggest talent extravaganza, bringing together established and emerging YouTube stars and their fans from across India and around the world.

Taking the excitement for the 2018 a notch higher, will be a diverse mix of music, comedy, magic, dance and fashion creators from India, including; Mahathalli, VIVA and Chai Bisket in Hyderabad; Abish Mathew, SnG Comedy and Jord Indian in Bangalore, Technical Guruji, Aksh Baghla and BB Ki Vines in New Delhi; Ashish Chanchlani, Be You Nick and Melvin Louis in Mumbai.

Satya Raghavan, Entertainment Head, YouTube in India, said -- Indian creators are on a meteoric rise. Last year, we only had 12 creators with 1 million subscribers. This year that number has grown to 100. That’s 7 creators crossing 1 million subscribers every single month. What’s even more incredible is the diverse nature of the platform that welcome creators from all parts of the country. We are seeing more creators coming from smaller cities and finding a nationwide and global audience on YouTube. Now in its fifth year, YouTube FanFest has truly become a showcase for talent that everyone aspires to be a part of and brings together the best of India and the world on the same platform.”

“This is the first time YouTube FanFest is coming to multiple cities across India and that’s because we want to celebrate the diversity and passion of YouTube communities in the country.” - he added.

Jasper Donat, CEO of Branded, co-producers of YouTube FanFest, said -- “This FanFest is going to see the biggest line up of YouTube stars in more locations than ever before. More stars, more cities, more fun and more screaming fans in one of YouTube’s largest Asian fan bases.”
