Leading Youtubers from Belgium based on subscribers 2018

As of April 2018, the channel of EDM festival Tomorrowland had the most subscribers of all YouTube channels coming from Belgium. It outperformed other channels from the country, reaching more than nine million subscribers. Tomorrowland archives most live performances of A-list DJs who ever performed at the music festival on YouTube, which might explain the popularity of the channel. Belgian DJ Dmitri Vegas, ranked along with his brother as the number two DJs of the world according to DJ Mag in 2018, had around 2.9 million subscribers. The numbers concern worldwide subscribers, although YouTube is a popular music source in Belgium itself.

Belgians increasingly watch online video

Between 2017 and 2018, the frequency with which internet users in Belgium watched online videos increased significantly. Roughly 40 percent of respondents watched online videos once per day, regardless of device. YouTube was the most-used platform for this in Flanders (the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium), whereas Twitch (which focuses exclusively on online gaming and e-Sports) reached a penetration rate of four percent in this region. Online news video penetration in Belgium was around 55 percent in 2018, which was higher than in the Netherlands but lower than the European average.

Influencers are also popular on Instagram

Vlogger Jimmy Labeeu can be found in third place in this ranking, with around 1.5 million subscribers. The French-speaking Belgian actor had a relationship with fellow YouTuber Gaëlle Garcia Diaz (who is not mentioned in this ranking). She topped the ranking for most-followed Instagram influencers coming from Belgium though.
