Nickelodeon’s Slimefest arrives in the UK with Blackpool Switch-On event

Nickelodeon UK and Ireland have partnered with Blackpool Council to launch the first Nickelodeon Slimefest on home soil.

The event will form part of Blackpool’s popular Switch On weekend with free and paid-for events taking place throughout the first weekend of September.

Taking place at the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens and expected to attract thousands, Nickelodeon’s Slimefest will feature two live shows, a host of activities, characters, music and of course, slime.

Highlights from Slimefest will be broadcast on the Nickelodeon channel later in the month.

“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,” said Alan Musa, VP, commercial director at Viacom International Media Networks.

“We know the town is dedicated to providing the best in entertainment for families and that Blackpool will be a brilliant host for the UK’s first ever Slimefest.

“The festival is set to be massive with activities, amazing acts and of course, loads of slime. UK kids are going to love it.”

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