The U.S. version of Nickelodeon SlimeFest is back.
The two-day, family-friendly music festival returns for a second year, taking place Saturday, June 8, and Sunday, June 9, at the Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago, Illinois. For its second round, Grammy Award-winning artist Pitbull, singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha, Nickelodeon star and YouTuber JoJo Siwa, and Grammy Award-winner T-Pain will perform. Additionally, numerous family experiences featuring the network’s signature green slime will take place. This year’s festival is sponsored by DIRECTV, Super Heroic and Ring Pop Gummy Gems.
New for 2019, Nickelodeon SlimeFest will include a Slime Maze and an expanded Slime Central, where over 30 people can get slimed simultaneously. Festivalgoers can also experience the giant slime pit in front of the stage; make their own slime at the Slime Lab; participate in a silent Slime Disco; and purchase exclusive SlimeFest merchandise.
