Nickelodeon Slimefest 2016 Comes To Blackpool


Nickelodeon supremoes Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely will take to the stage to host the UK’s first SLIMEFEST. Tickets are now on sale for the live shows which will include a spectacular performance from Britain’s Got Talent-winning dance troupe Diversity, created exclusively for SLIMEFEST by Ashley Banjo. Launched in Australia in 2012, Nickelodeon’s SLIMEFEST is a family music festival made especially for kids, featuring headline talent, DJs and a showground festival. The UK edition of SLIMEFEST will be an immersive music and entertainment festival focusing on kids aged four to 15. Featuring costume character appearances, hands-on activities, games and music, SLIMEFEST will run across 3rd and 4th September in Blackpool.

SLIMEFEST includes two identical live shows, music, stars and plenty of slime. The shows will take place on Saturday, 3rd September at the Empress Ballroom in the Winter Gardens, Blackpool as part of the resort’s annual Illuminations switch on celebrations. In addition to the ticketed live shows, SLIMEFEST features a free outdoor experience including character appearances and family activities on the Tower Festival Headland on both Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September.

“We can’t wait to host and perform at the UK’s first-ever SLIMEFEST, it’s a huge honour,” said Jordan Banjo. “Perri and I are working alongside super talented artists on what will be an epic slime-filled weekend.”

“Jordan and I are buzzing, Blackpool is about to get a slime take-over and the atmosphere will be electric,” said Perri Kiely. “We’re planning the ultimate SLIMEFEST-inspired Diversity performance, it’s going to be awesome so watch this space.”

Ticket prices for SLIMEFEST begin at £25 for entry to a SLIMEFEST live show. Additional ticket packages include a guaranteed space at the Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On event on Friday 2 September, admittance to Blackpool Pleasure Beach and to Nickelodeon Land. Full ticket details are available at Ticketmaster

Acts set to perform at SLIMEFEST will be announced over the coming weeks and footage from the SLIMEFEST live shows will be broadcast in a special SLIMEFEST programme on Nickelodeon.
