Nickelodeon Launches ‘Slimefest!’

Reece Mastin, Jessica Mauboy And More Confirmed To Perform At New Aussie Music Event…

Nickelodeon is set to combine music, stars, stunts and their trademark slime into one huge new event this year – ‘Slimefest!’

Kicking off on September 15 at Sydney’s Hordern Pavillion, ‘Slimefest’ is Australia’s first music festival created especially for tweens - and so far some huge Aussie acts including Jessica Mauboy, Reece Mastin and Justice Crew have been signed up to perform!

Also taking to the stage will be ‘Australian Idol’ winner Stan Walker and ‘Dancing With The Stars’ alum Johnny Ruffo.

"There's all these festivals out there but there are certain age limits, so this one is for them," Jessica told The Hot Hits.

Meanwhile, it seems Johnny’s keen to get slimed at the bash, adding,

"That's a big advantage this festival will have - you don't get slimed at the other festivals. I'm just hoping it's lime or apple-flavoured."

“Fans of the Australian KCAs [Kids’ Choice Awards] can expect SLIMEFEST to be a next-level concert experience, injected with spectacular slime stunts,” Ben Richardson, General Manager of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand, said in an official statement.

“It will be an event that kids and tweens all over Australia will want to be part of, and we’ll be making sure they can, no matter where they are. We’re planning audience participation in the arena as well as fan integration into the show through social media…Of course we will also be giving the show a national broadcast, extending the excitement to kids and tweens at home”

Tickets for the 5pm show go on sale Friday July 27 via Ticketek!
