Global gaming and entertainment superstars join the bill at this year’s PlayersXpo, as the first line-up for Ireland’s ultimate gaming event is revealed. Delivering on a promise to be bigger and better than anything Ireland has seen before, this blockbuster cast of triple A talent includes 20-year-old YouTube celebrity Slogoman (Josh Temple), Dutch vlogging sensation Jelly (Jelle Van Vuch) and popular Norwegian star iamSanna (Sanna).
Coming to the Convention Centre Dublin on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of October, this trio of industry legends will join a jam-packed roster of new and emerging homegrown talent, with even more top international acts yet to be revealed. Presenting with a combined YouTube subscription base of over 11 million fans worldwide, these very special celebrity guests are famed for their comedy gaming content, real-life challenges and interactive Q&A videos.
Having launched his channel at just 16-years-old, UK superstar ‘Slogoman’ has already amassed over one billion views, while his English speaking Dutch counterpart “Jelly” doubles the dose, with his 6.6 million subscribers gifting him a jaw dropping record of over two billion views to-date. Jelly’s well known girlfriend and fellow gaming maven Sanna (iamSanna) also joins the PlayersXpo bill, posting immersive fan focused content daily with an impressive 93 million views of her own.
