The weekend of 22nd and 23rd of July 2017, will see an unprecedented gathering of celebrity Minecraft YouTubers in Belfast for the Minevention PLUS event.
Whilst to some of us mere parents who know that their children are held in utter thrall by the Minecraft sensation, the celebrity status of the Rock Stars of the computing gaming world can be measured more by the millions of subscribers to their respective YouTube channels. Through these channels they reach a massive fanbase, enriching the social gaming aspect of Minecraft.
The prestigious lineup of celebrity YouTubers set to headline, feature the following: BigBSt4t2, Caffcast, Choochoos Gaming, FalseSymmetry, Grian, InTheLittlewood, Longshot, Minimuka, Miss Mousie Mouse, NettyPlays, RyGuyRocky, SnakeDoctor, SolidarityGaming, Sqaishey, Tomohawk and TycerX who are flying in from around the world to meet their fans in Ireland at the Minevention PLUS event.
On the day there will not only be opportunities to meet the YouTubers, challenge them in competitions but also there are question and answer sessions, open to kids and big kids alike! There will be chances to compete on stage in the ever popular interactive content such as the build battle tournaments.
There will be two double decker gaming buses, retro gaming areas for those of us that remember vintage Mariokart games before they were vintage.
There are, virtual reality zones, Lego Creative area and the educational zone featuring some of the most influential voices of the coming generation. The entire event is designed to give a wealth of opportunity and experience with many stalls offering merchandise and Minecraft mementos.
All this will take place on the 22nd and 23rd July 2017 at the prestigious Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast. Conveniently situated in the Titanic Quarter, Belfast.
The bumper two day event is held in partnership with Cool.FM and supported by Bricks4kids.
Creative Director, Lisa O’Brien, comments, “To bring Minevention Plus to the Titanic Exhibition Centre has been an ambition of ours for a while, and by being able to bring so many of the Minecraft community together to meet their fans will be a fantastic experience! We are delighted to have Minecraft Educators join us from Canada, USA, Scotland and local areas sharing the stage. From allowing children to meet their idols, to educating adults in the world of Minecraft and having a family friendly environment is key!”
