May you be a kid or a kid-at-heart, I’m sure Nickelodeon’s slime-tastic shows has been a memorable part of your childhood. When I was young, I used to watch Nick stars get showered with slime from a random blimp or a trap door somewhere on the stage, slightly wishing that I was also there to feel how it’s like to be in all that gooey-yet-fun situation! For everyone like me who are still wondering ’til now, our time has come to experience the fun activities first-hand at Asia’s first ever Nickelodeon SlimeFest in the Philippines!
In collaboration with Globe Telecom, the ultimate slime-filled, multiplatform music and entertainment event for kids (and families) will be held on September 28, 2019 at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. Get your festival mode on with performances by top regional and local music artists, immersive one-of-a-kind experiences, Nickelodeon stars and characters, and plenty of the brand’s signature green slime!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Expect to see Thai-German singer, songwriter and actress Jannine Weigel perform her unique brand of catchy pop tunes at the event; joined by singer and star of Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans Kira Kosarin, who will also be hosting the show. Other guests are yet to be revelead.
