Nickelodeon UK’s Slimefest will return for a fifth year to Blackpool for a long weekend of slime, music and mayhem, with a new date bringing the event to London for the first time ever.

Following a string of sell-out shows last year, Slimefest 2020 will take place at The Arena at Blackpool Pleasure Beach from 17–19 October and is coming to London for the first time ever with DHP Family presenting two shows at The SSE Arena, Wembley on 26 October.

“We can’t wait to bring Slimefest back for a fifth year, it’s been such a huge success in Blackpool so we’re looking forward to returning to the UK’s favourite beach resort,” says Virginia Monaghan, VP, Events and Experiences, ViacomCBS Networks International.

“Expanding the shows to the iconic arena in Wembley is a testament to the event and it’s affinity with kids and parents alike. London and Blackpool -prepare for the ultimate badge of honour from us at Nickelodeon… slime!”

An all new location calls for new additions to the hosting line up. Longstanding Slimefest hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely are returning to the stage, and this year will be joined by The X Factor: Celebritys’ Max and Harvey, and popular TikTok creator Holly H for all eight shows.

They’ll host Nickelodeon’s unique mix of chart-topping music acts, special guests, social stars and of course….Slime!

Tickets for the event go on sale from Friday 6 March at 10am, and this year’s Slimefest will also be aired on Friday 6 November on Nickelodeon as well as over the weekend on Channel 5.
