As you may or may not be aware, I attended Summer in the City 2014 and so I feel like sharing with you all of my experience and time there, and some advice to share with you if you’re thinking of attending the event in the near future.
After our little chat we took three selfies on my phone and I went in for another hug, purely because I may never meet him again.
Personally if you want to meet any YouTuber it is by luck and patience, they are busy people and you need to respect that they can’t please everyone. They’re doing them formal meet and greets for around 2-3 hours, and I can’t imagine how exhausting it must be to keep a smile on their face and ensure they don’t disappoint anyone.
Overall my tips are to expect an awful lot of queuing, some disappointment are inevitable, but importantly just enjoy your time there and think of it as an experience you may never have again. Don’t be scared of making new friends because you can make tonnes.
I hope this in some way gave you at least a rough idea of what SitC is like, and was in some ways helpful. I had a great time and someday I’ll go back…when hopefully they have a better ticketing system.
