On May 16, Busch Gardens will host the DigiTour United26, bringing some of the biggest YouTubers and Vine stars together in one location. From 6 to 7:30 p.m., seven social media stars will take the stage to entertain thousands of fans:

Hayes Grier
Hayes Grier started making Vines with his older brother Nash, but since striking out on his own he has climbed to the top 50 of the Vine Charts. At just 14 years old, he has more than 3.5 million followers on Vine, 3.5 million followers on Instagram and 2.5 million followers on Twitter. He is a rising star in the social media world, and right now he is touring the world with his brother and friends to perform live and meet his fans.

He has gained more than a million followers and fans across the nation. He is currently balancing touring the United States, performing and meeting his fans, working on his music and developing his acting career.

Daniel Skye
When 14-year-old singer/songwriter Daniel Skye sent out a Tweet that he would be performing at a local mall, hundreds of screaming girls came out to greet him. Dedicating the last two years of his life to singing and learning how to play guitar, Daniel has amassed a considerable amount of popularity online, with over one million followers on his social media channels. Although still young in age, Daniel already has performed at major venues across the U.S. on tours such as DigiTour, Sunsation Tour and others.

Alyssa Shouse

After making a music video with him and being featured on MTV, she went on to pursue her musical career as a singer/songwriter. At the age of 19, she went on her first tour during summer 2014, covering 30 cities and has since continued writing music and performing throughout the U.S.

Alec is very passionate about music and looks forward to sharing it with his fans around the world at live shows and events.

Jonah Marais
Jonah Marais was born and raised in Stillwater, Minnesota and started off broadcasting online for a mere audience of five people, until more and more users started watching. Now he’s leading his own hometown shows, selling out thousands of tickets. His fan base has tripled within the past year and he is currently working on original music and touring around the country with his friends.
