TwitchCon is officially canceled and will not be rescheduled, but a brand new event is taking its place. The new event called GlitchCon features over 400 Twitch streamers and content creators as they compete in competitions, host segments, and judge others in a 12-hour marathon event.
Twitch partners JD Witherspoon and Mari Takahashi are the GlitchCon event hosts. The event kicks off on Saturday, November 14, at noon EST. Emmett Shear, Twitch CEO, will start with an announcement before diving right into the event.
There’s a full event schedule here, but some of the highlights include:
- Guess the Gamer (5:10 PM): Twitch Partners play games with a mysterious masked celebrity. It’s their job to figure out who’s under the mask.
- Austin Talent Show (7:10 PM): The most incredible talent show on Twitch, with a $40,000 prize.
- GlitchCon Showdown (1:05 to 10:30 PM): The top Twitch streamers compete in various games, including VALORANT, Fall Guys, League of Legends, and Fortnite, for a share of the $500,000 prize pool.
- Afterparty (11:10 PM): T-Pain closes out the segment with an afterparty featuring various artists and musicians.
GlitchCon is on all major social media platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. If you want to keep your finger on the pulse, give them a follow so you don’t miss out on anything. No matter your location, there is a co-streamer available for your region.
It’s sad to see TwitchCon go, but the alternative looks like it will be a blast. Fans can enjoy over twelve hours of entertainment from their favorite content creators, so there will be something to keep everyone busy this upcoming Saturday. Who knows, there might even be some surprises thrown in to shake things up a bit.
