Stream #WithMe: YouTube creators join together for live-stream special
Staff Reporter | On 30, Apr 2020
Some of the UK’s most popular YouTube creators and celebrities will come together today in a special four-hour live-stream event.
Stream #WithMe is designed to support, entertain and educate viewers in lockdown. The all-star group of creators and celebrities will let us in on how they are coping with the lockdown experience, sharing tips on how to keep entertained, upbeat, and active as they tag-team their way through four hours of unexpected performances and exciting challenges culminating in a stunt for the nation.
Each of the four hours will be hosted by a different creator. Throughout Stream #WithMe, audiences will be encouraged to support the great work of the NHS associated charities by making a donation to the NHS Charities Together campaign.
Luke Hyams, the Head of YouTube Originals EMEA, says: “Now more than ever, YouTube wants to bring people together. That’s why in our new YouTube Original, Stream #WithMe, we have enabled the coming together of an incredible line-up of Britain’s most-loved creators and voices to support, entertain and bring a bit of laughter to those at home and on the front lines. Life in isolation brings both difficult challenges and moments of joy. We hope this show brings the latter.”
The special is produced by Electric Robin and directed by Kevin Batchelor.
Batchelor, Co-Founder Electric Robin, comments: “Because we are in isolation, this live stream is a real technical challenge – combining 12 different live locations together using up to 60 different cameras we have pulled out all the stops to bring this epic broadcast together and we’re really excited to have some of the biggest and best content creators on our line-up. It’s all down to a huge team effort and brilliantly talented people that we’ve been able to turn this around so quickly. It’s going to be four hours of amazing entertainment that we hope will help bring some light into homes as we navigate these unprecedented times, while also helping raise money for those on the frontline.”
The event kicks off at 4pm BST – watch here:
