VidCon Announces Creator Lineup for 2024

VidCon 2024 is just six months away — and the annual internet culture convention is revealing the names of 60 creators set to descend on Anaheim, California.

Rolling Stone can exclusively reveal Tuesday that authors (and VidCon co-founders) John and Hank Green, Polynesian-American singer Dinah Jane, YouTube comedian Brandon Rogers, Game Theorists’ MatPat, and Latine TikTok staple Leo González are among the first creators announced for the annual festivities.

Among the other creators set to make appearances at the convention (scheduled for June 26-29) are The Circle‘s Raven Sutton, TikToker Rod Thill, Latine creator Jesús Nalgas, Mexican creator duo Calle y Poché, YouTuber Kalen Allen, comedian Daniel Thrasher, indigenous model Michelle Chubb, Minecraft streamer Sapnap, and trans handy ma’am Mercury Stardust.

Other creators joining VidCon are MeganPlays, CG5, Allen Pan, Casual Geographic, Dadlifeiason, Sheena Melwani, Mark Takahashi, Xiaomanyc, Rod Thill, DangMattSmith, and Horchata Soto. (See all 60 creators set to be featured on VidCon’s site.)

The Convention will be adding new creators to its lineup and announcing those in the weeks leading up to the event.

It’s a special convention for the Green brothers, as it’ll be the first since Hank entered remission after being treated for Hodgkin lymphoma. “Last year I wasn’t able to go because I was getting chemo, and it made me so mad!” he tells Rolling Stone. “I can’t wait to be there again, meeting old friends, making new ones, and learning about this very weird world.”

“I am excited to return to VidCon for the 13th time. It’s such a special gathering of the industry and the fans who support it,” adds his brother John.

Although it’s unclear at this time what type of programming each of the featured creators will be featured in, the event announcement comes just days after YouTuber MatPat announced he was retiring from the Game Theorists.

In a tearful video titled “Goodbye Internet” last week, MatPat announced that March 9, 2024, would be his last day hosting Game Theorists, a popular YouTube franchise devoted to video game lore and discussion.

As for Dinah Jane, the former Fifth Harmony member has been working on a solo music comeback after dropping single “Ya Ya” and collaborating with her former bandmate Ally Brooke last year.


“I’m from Orange County, so it’s going to be fun hanging with so many of my favorite internet celebs right in my own backyard,” Jane tells Rolling Stone. “I’m there to werk and I’m guessing there will be a few surprises in store when it comes to programming. See you there!”

Tickets for the annual internet culture convention in Anaheim are on sale now. Four-day community track tickets start at $110, creator track entry begins at $155, while industry track entrance costs $699.
