Returning to Victoria's capital city for the second year in a row, VidCon 2019 will introduce Melburnian digi-geeks to a plethora of video stars such as The Try Guys. The Try Guys, made up of Keith Habersberger, Ned Fulmer, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang, combined digi forces while working for BuzzFeed in 2014. The awesome comedy foursome has since branched out on their own and stream their unique experiences via YouTube.

The Try Guys represent some of the most premier online YouTube content producers currently streaming and have hit over a billion views across social media platforms (550 million on YouTube alone). Their success is undoubtedly founded on the connections they've formed with their online community of dedicated fans and subscribers.

Online vlogger Georgia productions, Online art instructor Draw with Jazza, YouTube sensation better known as MyLifeAsEva and American animator TheOdd1sOut join The Try Guys in VicCon 2019's impressive line-up of confirmed content creators.
