Nickelodeon UK is again partnering with VisitBlackpool to bring Nickelodeon's Slimefest to the Pleasure Beach resort for a third year of slime, music and mayhem, following last year's six sold-out shows.

Slimefest 2018 will take place at The Arena at Blackpool Pleasure Beach from October 20th - 22nd.

Tickets for the event are on sale today (1st February), with the musical acts, guests and surprises yet to be confirmed. 

Last year things got messy with 12,000 people in attendance at The Arena at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and 9,000 litres of slime used across the weekend.

“Slimefest 2018 promises to be yet another fun, messy and incredible weekend, it’s sure to be a hit with kids and parents alike,” said Alison Bakunowich, SVP general manager, Nickelodeon UK & Ireland. “Last year was a huge success – with stellar acts, presenters and of course, plenty of slime. We plan to make this year’s even better!”

Cllr Gillian Campbell, deputy leader of Blackpool Council, added: “We are so excited to be partnering again with Nickelodeon on another Slimefest. This is a great event for families and we are looking forward to more slime-filled fun this year.

Hosted by Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, Slimefest 2017 saw 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. Nickelodeon star and YouTube teen sensation JoJo Siwa also made her UK performance debut. School of Rock stars Breanna Yde and Ricardo Hurtado featured as special guests.

More information on the Slimefest 2018 performers and hosts will be announced in the coming weeks.
