JoJo Siwa to Headline Inaugural U.S. Nickelodeon SlimeFest 


Nick star JoJo Siwa is among those lined up for Nickelodeon SlimeFest, the first multi-day music festival for kids and families in the U.S.

The two-day event will include appearances by Kel Mitchell and Benjamin Flores Jr. (Game Shakers), Riele Downs and Ella Anderson (Henry Danger), Breanna Yde (School of Rock), and Daniella Perkins and Owen Joyner (Knight Squad). Nickelodeon SlimeFest will feature performances by music artists such as Zedd, Liam Payne, Flo Rida and Siwa.

There will also be immersive, one-of-a-kind experiences and plenty of green slime. Nickelodeon SlimeFest will be held at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago, Illinois, on Saturday, June 9, and Sunday, June 10. The U.S. music festival marks the sixth local adaptation of this popular event and the first time a Nickelodeon International event has been localized for Nick in the U.S. The first Nickelodeon SlimeFest was held in Australia in 2012.
