Published on: 26th February 2016

Nickelodeon UK & Ireland has teamed up with Blackpool Council to bring the family-friendly festival to the iconic seaside town.

SLIMEFEST-480Launched in Australia in 2012, Nickelodeon’s Slimefest is a family music festival made especially for kids, featuring headline talent, DJs and a showground festival. Spain launched Slimefest in 2015 with the first Italian Slimefest set to take place on 28th February.

The first of its kind in the UK, Slimefest will form a part of Blackpool’s world-famous Switch-On weekend, with free and paid-for events taking place throughout 3rd and 4th September.

Slimefest will feature two live shows, activities, costumer character appearances, games, music and plenty of slime. The live shows will take place at the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens, with the outdoor festival staged on the Switch-On arena at the Tower Festival Headland. Highlights from the festival will be broadcast on the Nickelodeon channel later in the month.

Alan Musa, VP, commercial director at Viacom International Media Networks, commented: “We already have a great relationship with Blackpool with Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and our relationship is set to be strengthened even further with Slimefest.”
