Twitch is bringing it’s annual celebratory festival to Europe for the first time ever in 2019, as an additional event to the traditional California based convention held each year.

Following the conclusion of TwitchCon 2018 in San Jose, CA, Twitch says they “couldn’t wait a year to do it all again”, and so will be bringing the convention to Berlin on April 13-14, 2019.

The event will take place at the CityCube in the German capital, and is to be the same format as TwitchCon in the US, inviting streamers, fans, developers and commercial partners to celebrate everything that Twitch has to offer.

Bringing the convention across the pond has been a big request from European Twitch fans, but also streamers who perhaps can’t afford the time or money to make the trip to enjoy the festivities so far afield.

Content for the event will “tailored” for English, German and French, with subtitles and interpreters on hand when possible.

In the event FAQ’s, Twitch says the event will be “open to everyone”, despite Germany’s “strict age restrictions for gaming and gaming events” and they will be working closely with USK, the German regulator for video games classification.

Attendees are yet to be announced, but it is likely that a number of popular US based streamers will also make the trip, giving their European fans a better opportunity to meet them.

At the very least, it should avoid another mishap like when Swedish Twitch streamer ‘Jellyzaur’ accidentally travelled to the wrong San Jose (in Costa Rica), when attempting to attend TwitchCon 2018.

Dates for ticket sales have not been announced yet and pricing is not yet final, but Twitch aims to provide options such as one or two day passes.

So we’re not going to. 

In 2019, make room for a second TwitchCon! On 13-14 April, join us in taking over the CityCube Berlin in Germany for the first-ever TwitchCon Europe. It’ll be the same celebration of creators, fans, and everything else we love about Twitch — but much, much closer to our European community.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
