Registration Information

What kind of badge should I get?

  • Do you want to see your favorite creators in meetups or panels, get an autograph, dance into the wee hours, wander the Expo Hall and festival? Then you should get a Community Track ticket.
  • Do you make videos or want to attend panels and workshops to learn more about the process of creating great content for a channel? Then you should get a Creator Track ticket.
  • Are you affiliated with online video in any professional capacity (creator, marketer, executive, admin, production, and so on)? Then you should get an Industry Track ticket.

How much are tickets? You can find all of our current ticket prices here.

How long are tickets available? Tickets are available until sold out. Each price level is based on a specific number of tickets sold. They will go fast, so please do not hesitate to get yours!

Last day to cancel or modify tickets? June 6, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. PT

Can I buy a ticket at the door? No, tickets are only available in advance, and will be sold until we reach capacity.

Where/when to pick up badge? After registering for VidCon online you will receive a confirmation email with information regarding your registration. Hold onto this information as it is very important. About two weeks before the event you will receive an email with a QR code. You will use this QR code to register on site. At this point you will receive your VidCon badge, and the fun will begin!

Age restrictions? Ages 8 and under are free for entry but must be accompanied by a ticketed adult at all times. Ages 9-12 must purchase tickets and have an 18+ chaperone with them at all times. If you are over 13 and your parents are okay with you being at VidCon then so are we!

Chaperone Tickets? Last year you had to have a VidCon badge in order to get a chaperone wristband, this year, it is not a requirement to have a badge to receive a chaperone wristband. If you would like to stay on the convention center grounds for the weekend, you may get a chaperone wristband at registration, when your child picks up their badge. Your child MUST be present in order to get a chaperone wristband at registration!
With a chaperone wristband, but without a badge, you will be able to visit the Festival area, the Parents’ Lounge in Hall D, the Signing & Photo Hall (only if/when your child has signings to attend), and the entire Lobby area of the Anaheim Convention Center.
If you’d like to go to any panels or Q&As, into the Expo Halls, or see any concerts with your child, you must purchase a ticket before June 6.

Do I have to buy a ticket for each day? No, your ticket will get you into all three days of VidCon. We will not be selling individual day passes.

Featured Creator & Signing Hall Information

Are you doing a Signing Lottery again? Yes. For an overview about the signing lottery click here.

Will I meet my favorite creator? There is no guarantee that you will meet, take a photo with or get an autograph from your favorite creator. It is just not possible for the creators to meet all of their fans in such a short weekend. We hope that you understand the circumstances of this event. If you are only coming to VidCon to meet a creator we strongly encourage you to reconsider your purchase. You may not be able to meet your favorite creator, but there are so many other great things you can take part in at VidCon!

Accessibility at VidCon

What accommodations are provided for people with disabilities?

If you are an attendee with disabilities, VidCon wants to make your experience as fun and as entertaining as possible, but there are a few limitations on what can be provided.

  • There is designated seating for people in wheelchairs at large programming events, but programming rooms fill up quickly, and all seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so special seating may not be available if you wait until the last minute to get to the room. Please read the Agenda and plan your day accordingly, keeping in mind the popularity of most events.
  • VidCon does not provide wheelchairs to rent directly through the Anaheim Convention Center. The ACC does, however, recommend this vendor if you or another attendee should need to rent one for the weekend.
  • Guide, signal and service animals (as defined in state and local laws) are permitted on the Anaheim Convention Center campus in alignment with ADA requirements.
  • There will be ASL interpreters signing at the Kia Mainstage, and Kia Arena.
  • If you have any other questions or specific requests please email info@vidcon.com
