The music and green-goo event which replaced the Kid’s Choice Awards has for the last 2 years only been staged in Sydney.
The third year of the event will lift its audience capacity from 9,000 to more than 16,000 kids and families.
“Nickelodeon SlimeFest has become an anticipated event amongst Australian families and an important part of our global entertainment portfolio,” said Ben Richardson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Viacom International Media Networks Australia.
“It gives us the opportunity to connect with our young audience by giving them an experience they will never forget – in most cases their first live music show. We have a vision to continue building the SlimeFest brand in Australia and by combining our kids expertise with Nice Events’ touring experience, we will ensure that the festival continues to grow,”
SlimeFest will include four shows – two in Sydney on Friday, 26 September and two in Melbourne on Sunday, 28 September, with tix on sale from 9am Monday, 7 July via Ticketmaster. Performers will be announced soon.
A 90 minute version will air on Nickelodeon on 29 September.
