Nickelodeon’s multiplatform music and entertainment event SlimeFest is heading to Asia for the first time, set to take place in the Philippines later this year.
The event will be held at Manila’s Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on September 28. Thai-German singer-songwriter and actress Jannine Weigel will headline SlimeFest Asia, performing for the first time in the Philippines. Tickets go on sale August 15.
This marks the event’s seventh local adaptation, with previous SlimeFests taking place in South Africa, Australia, Germany, Italy, the U.K. and Spain. Also coming up is SlimeFest UK in October, with more international event dates to be announced later this year. Since its inception in 2012 in Australia, nearly 162,000 people have attended the event around the world.
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.
Paras Sharma, senior VP and general manager for Southeast Asia for Viacom International Media Networks, said: “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.”
