This year’s YouTube FanFest lineup has been revealed, and includes a number of familiar faces from the Southeast Asian music scene, including Ben&Ben, SB19 and Namewee.
The YouTube FanFest typically brings together popular musicians and content creators from the region for a physical event in Singapore in conjunction with the All That Matters conference.
Besides the annual Singapore event, YouTube FanFest has made its way to the Philippines, Japan, Mumbai, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia.

The lineup sees a total of 150 creators and musicians from Southeast Asia and international personalities, who will collaborate over performances, gaming content, panel discussions and YouTube skits.
Among the artists announced for the lineup’s first wave on September 25 are Philippines’ Ben&Ben and SB19, Malaysian rapper Namewee, Taiwanese alt-rock trio Tilly Birds, Japan’s SixTones and Snow Man, and India’s Anirudh Ravichander, Emiway Bantai, and Prateek Kuhad, and Australia’s Lime Cordiale among many others.
