Published on: 20th June 2016

The five YouTubers have collectively gained over one billion views. 

DKS480AshDubh, LDShadowLady, Amy Lee, Tomohawk and SmallishBeans have over five million subscribers between them, which they’ve gained whilst vlogging about Minecraft. They will now be taking centre stage at the Digital Kids Show at EventCity on 29th and 30th October.

Aisha Tilstone, Digital Kids Show founder, said: “We’re delighted to add this stellar line-up to the Digital Kids Show. These Vloggers are superstars amongst today’s children who spend hours watching their gaming vlogs to pick up hints and tips. Children will be desperate to have the chance to see their favourite YouTubers and learn all about what they do to create a successful YouTube channel. It also provides parents the opportunity to understand what makes these superstars so popular, and highlights the opportunities which YouTube and being a Digital Kid can provide for the next generation.”

Other stars signed up for the show include children’s TV comedy duo Dick and Dom and Mr Bloom, with more to be announced.

The show features six interactive zones including the Retro Tech & Gaming zone where families can get hands-on with retro classics such as PacMan and Sonic the Hedgehog, as well as the latest releases and virtual reality games.
