The Abu Dhabi part of the global content-creating festival VidCon was originally scheduled to take place between March 25 and March 28, 2020.
This was, of course, the time when the whole world was turned upside down and the global pandemic forced postponement until December 16, 2020. When life was still not quite ready to return to normal, this was postponed once again to the now confirmed dates December 3 to 6, 2021.
It takes place at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) with more than 90 confirmed guests including Supercar Blondie, Anasala Family, Kwebbelkop, Noor Stars, The Merrell Twins, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Hayla TV, Omar Farooq, SarahhMiladd, Topz, HANODY AWESOME, AboFlah, Rachel Levin (rclbeauty101), LivingBobby and Dear Alyne.

What is VidCon
If you’re in the category of people rolling their eyes every time they hear the phrase ‘do a TikTok’, it’s probably not a concert for you, but it’s a great thing for those who use and create new media content .
VidCon is a global series of events that provides a platform for digital content creators, platform innovators, executives, brands and fans to mingle, inspire and learn.
