Twitch have revealed plans for TwitchCon in 2020, announcing new dates and locations for the popular livestream convention.

TwitchCon is held twice a year, typically with an event in North America and Europe to celebrate some of the livestreaming platform’s streamers and communities.

Twitch hosts a range of activities for both streamers and fans to experience such as meet and greets, panels, Twitch Rivals tournaments, and much more.

TwitchTwitchCon has been quite popular among streamers and fans over recent years.

Although TwitchCon 2019 is just getting underway in San Diego, California, Twitch has already revealed that TwitchCon will be returning the west coast yet again in the San Diego Convention Center for 2020.

However, the European TwitchCon event will be held in a brand new city, after being previously held in Berlin, and is now set to take place in Amsterdam for 2020.

Twitch also released the dates for each of the events, starting with the European TwitchCon on May 2-3, 2020 at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre and September 25-27 in 2020 for the San Diego convention.

Twitch Rivals often hosts tournaments at the TwitchCon events for some of the biggest streamers and pro players in esports, as was seen with this year’s Fortnite Trio’s Showdown.

However, it did have its share of technical issues during the tournament, which even led to FaZe Clan star NICKMERCS threatening to leave

Despite its issues, TwitchCon 2019 also saw some highly entertaining moments take place such as the meeting of two of the platform’s most popular streamers, xQc and Tyler1, which went exactly as many fans would expect.

It’s the main event for fans to meet their favorites and for Twitch to make big announcements on the future of the platform, and is always packed for both the European and North American venuses.

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.”
