Jojo Siwa and Diversity to return for Slimefest 2018

Published on: 16th March 2018

They will be returning to Nickelodeon’s Slimefest in partnership with VisitBlackpool from 20th – 22nd October.

The event will be held at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Last year’s slime-filled music shows were a huge success with parents and kids alike, with JoJo making her UK performance debut with hit songs including Boomerang, and Diversity showcasing their dance routines. They will again be joined by hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, with the additional line up being announced in the run-up to this year’s six performances.

Councillor Gillian Campbell, the deputy leader of Blackpool Council, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome back JoJo to Slimefest in October. We also have the added bonus of seeing not just Diversity but Jordan and Perri again, in what is going to be an amazing event for all the family. This is fantastic news for Blackpool and look forward to welcoming Slimefest fans from all over the country.”

Amanda Thompson OBE, managing director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, commented: “Following on from the huge success of last year’s Slimefest, we are truly excited to see the event returning to Blackpool Pleasure Beach. As Blackpool Pleasure Beach is home to the UK’s only Nickelodeon Land, I can’t think of a better place for Slimefest to take place.”

Over 12,000 people attended the six sold out shows in 2017 with performances from Diversity along with seven chart topping acts: Pixie Lott, The Vamps, Professor Green, Matt Terry, New Hope Club, 5 After Midnight and M.O. JoJo Siwa also made her UK performance debut. School of Rock stars Breanna Yde and Ricardo Hurtado featured as special guests.
