YouTube has kicked off the second season of its Rewind series in the form of YouTube Escape2021 – an interactive livestream that will recap on the best moments of the year. Here’s how and when you can watch Escape.

Since 2010, YouTube released its annual ‘YouTube Rewind’, highlighting the best creators, memes, moments, and pop-culture hits of the year.

However, the annual recap made a disappearance in 2020 and has now been replaced by Escape2021 – a three-chapter, 24-hour interactive livestream that kicks off YouTube Season 2 of Rewind.

Here’s what we know about YouTube Escape2021, including how to watch and what to expect.


What is YouTube Escape2021

Escape2021 is the first installment of the second season of the YouTube Rewind series. Like its predecessor, we should expect Escape2021 to recap on the best moments we’ve seen on YouTube throughout 2021.

Unlike Rewind, Escape2021 will be in the form of a livestream that will last 24-hours. The stream will be split up into three chapters where viewers can play through challenges and experiences from 2021, with relaxing music in between from lo-fi girl.

Specifics of what to expect during the different chapters are unknown. However, artists such as BTS, Doja Cat and The Weeknd are expected to make an appearance throughout the stream.

How to watch YouTube Escape2021

YouTube Escape2021 will start on December 16 and will run for 24-hours hosting three chapters throughout the livestream.

You can watch Escape2021 on the official YouTube channel which we’ve embedded for you.

The three different chapters allow viewers from all regions of the world to experience Escape at a reasonable time. Below are the set times for each chapter.
