Nickelodeon is bringing the brand’s iconic SlimeFest to the Philippines. The slime-filled, multiplatform music and entertainment event for kids and families will be the first-ever SlimeFest in Asia. The event will take place at Manila’s Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on September 28.
SlimeFest has seen success around the globe as a multiplatform music and entertainment event since its overseas inception in 2012 in Australia. Nearly 162,000 people have attended Nickelodeon SlimeFest events around the world to date, including sold-out shows in South Africa, Australia, Germany, Italy, UK and Spain. Also coming up is SlimeFest UK in October, with more international event dates to be announced later this year. The event in the Philippines will mark the seventh local adaptation.
“The first SlimeFest in the Philippines will give fans a unique opportunity to be a part of the Nickelodeon world, and will also create new and unique offerings to brands and distribution partners to engage with their customers and subscribers. Live events deepen the connection between our viewers and the content they love, and is one of the ways we bring our brands to life,” said Paras Sharma, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Southeast Asia, Viacom International Media Networks.
Thai-German singer, songwriter and actress Jannine Weigel will headline SlimeFest in Manila, performing for the first time in the country. Pop singer and star of Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans Kira Kosarin will host as well as perform at SlimeFest, with other acts to be announced soon. Concertgoers can expect an immersive one-of-a-kind experience and plenty of the brand’s signature green slime. In addition to live music, SlimeFest will feature a non-ticketed festival area with music-themed activities for the entire family.
Tickets will go on sale on SM Tickets from August 15. There will be a special pre-sale for Globe subscribers (with proof of subscription) on August 14, via the SM Tickets outlet at SM Mall of Asia. In the weeks ahead, fans can get information and news updates on the Nickelodeon SlimeFest Facebook page to keep up with all things #SlimeFestAsia.
