AmplifyLIVE 2016 – A festival for the connected generation.
The Internet’s biggest and brightest music and social media talents will be performing live for their Pacific fans at #AmplifyLIVE 2016 – on a massive tour of Australia and New Zealand in April.
In 2016, the festival will be touring nationally and this year, the festival expands outside of Australia, visiting Auckland and Wellington, with all shows happening during the first school holiday break of 2016.
Headlining #AmplifyLive is award-winning Youtuber Tyler Oakley, well renowned as an LGBTQ+ creator and listed by TIME Magazine as one of the ‘30 Most Influential People on the Internet’ in 2015. He has more than 22 million followers across his platforms, 8 million of which on his Youtube channel.
Tyler’s passion for hilarious, engaging, and unapologetically personal storytelling isn’t limited to YouTube. In 2015 alone, his award-winning podcast Psychobabble reached #1 on the iTunes store, he’s sold out 30 stops of his international Slumber Party themed tour, embarked on 20 stops for his international book tour for his utterly honest, New York Times topping memoir ‘BINGE’, and released a no-holes-barred behind the scenes documentary called ‘SNERVOUS’.
Andrea Russet is making quite a name in the Youtube world, boasting a channel with a staggering 2.4 million subscribers. Today, her Youtube channel GETTOxFABxFOREVER is a well-known amalgamation of homespun and lifestyle oriented videos, tickling the viewers’ tastes for original and relatable comedy. Check out our latest one-on-one interview with Andrea Russett here.
With a combined following of 80 million across YouTube, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, these unique creators personify a new wave of artists who are more passionately engaged with their devoted audiences than ever before. #AmplifyLIVE by Rimmel London will be the biggest and best chance Australian and New Zealand fans can get to a one-on-one, meet and greet opportunity with their internet idols with the chance to see them up close and personal in a live stage show.
Nic Kelly, Executive Producer and Host of AMPLIFY’s flagship daily content series #AmplifyNOW said: “The way #AmplifyLIVE captivated the connected generation in 2015 was incredible and the show was a laugh-out-loud, no boring bits spectacular. We can’t wait to bring an even bigger experience to even more Australians and New Zealanders in 2016.”
