Does MagCon Still Exist? 'Chasing Cameron' Explores Its Complicated History
Netflix's new docuseries Chasing Cameron documents the life of Vine star Cameron Dallas and his friends, who have also found success through the medium of super-short, funny videos. The group of almost all young, male Viners are part of a group called the "MagCon Boys" that will be featured in the series. But does the MagCon still exist? Well, the "meet-and-greet convention," where fans got the chance to watch their favorite online personalities perform and meet them in person, just finished a tour around the entire world, including far-flung locales like New Zealand and the UK.
The MagCon crew are still incredibly active, but it looks like the actual tour — the source of much drama on Chasing Cameron — is on pause for now. Big fans of the group will likely be disappointed, because this tour just came to an end in the fall of 2016, that they just barely missed it. Unfortunately, MagCon's website has no upcoming tour dates, and there's actually no information about whether or not the group plans to bring back the tour in 2017. Actually, the 2016 tour was something of a surprise, after its initial popularity in 2014 led to an apparently contentious MagCon group breakup, as evidenced by tweets between the group highlighted by J-14.
They can't admit it, give them time.... I say you guys show some of the guys how much we all really miss @MAGCONTOUR— Cameron Dallas (@camerondallas) June 2, 2015
Ultimately, though, they were able to bring four of the original tour stars together in order to launch the huge reunion tour. So far, there hasn't been another breakup or any more announcements from the group. Instead, the official social media accounts for the MagCon have been promoting Chasing Cameron and updating their fans on individual posts and announcements from the tour members.
The MagCon was a great way to see a bunch of super popular Viners performing together, with a chance to take a picture or ask a question of the online celebrities. But at this point, it seems like the best place to see the MagCon stars is the same place that made them famous: the Internet. No, it's not the same, but just because they're not on tour at this very moment, that doesn't mean these stars have slowed down the production of new content.
Between the MagCon stars — Dallas, Taylor Carniff, Aaron Carpenter, and Carter Reynolds, and their guest stars, Blake Grey, Trey Schafer, Christian Delgrosso, and Willie Jones — you have a half dozen platforms to follow and communicate with them on while you wait for news about any future MagCon tours.
