If you weren’t at DigiFest NYC this weekend -- a music festival showcasing the best artists in social media -- you were seriously missing out. We at MTV News, however, were there all weekend, catching up with your favorite YouTube stars. But don’t worry – you can live vicariously through these pics and pretend you were right there with us.
Chilling With O2L
What’s better than a giant bus with the O2L boys’ faces on it? Ricky, Connor, Trevor, Sam, JC and Kian in the flesh! I was lucky enough to have the boy invite me onto their tour bus to hang out for a bit. When Kian wasn’t picking apart pieces of paper to delicately place in JC’s hair, the boys getting ready to pump up their fans.
Frankie Grande Goes Glam
Even if you were at DigiFest, you probably didn't see Frankie Grande -- yes, Ariana Grande’s hilariously awesome brother -- getting glittered up backstage. I’m not entirely sure how many bottles of glitter were used, but let’s just say he put a whole new meaning to “Shine bright like a Frankie!”
Viners Take Over
Viners owned DigiFest. Matt Espinosa stole my phone quickly to snap a silly selfie before running over to his screaming fans to take even more.
Selfies All Around
Speaking of selfies… Mega-babes Andrea Russett, Lauren Elizabeth and Jenn McAllister are selfie QUEENS. I’m thinking we could all use a tutorial.
The Settle Down Kids Turned It Up
While Savana and Dana joked that no one knew who Jonah Green of the Settle Down Kids was, the crowd proved otherwise, going insane for the group and the rest of the Beast Coast crew.
Josh Sobo's Backstage Pass
Josh Sobo made everyone experience FOMO (even the people physically at DigiFest NYC) with his photos and Vines from inside CitiField, where the green rooms for talent were located. During some down time, he and Jake Foushee had some fun in the empty stadium.
Cameron Dallas Gives A Kiss On The Cheek
You didn't give me your twitter, but here's your picture! pic.twitter.com/6s2tQspITK— Nash (@Nashgrier) June 8, 2014
Vine stars Nash Grier and Cameron Dallas went photo crazy in the best way possible! This lucky fan not only got a kiss from Cameron himself, but also her photo personally delivered by Nash on Twitter.
An Announcement From Jack And Jack
Screams roared through the crowds when Viners Jack Gilinsky and Jack Johnson took to the stage to announce that they’d be going on tour with Digi this summer and releasing a new EP!
Fifth Harmony Put On A Flawless Performance
Fifth Harmony slayed with their performance. Those girls can seriously make anything look flawless.
Last, but certainly not least, the always incredible Megan and Liz took some time after their set to leave you with some beautiful words of wisdom.
