NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nickelodeon, the number-one kids’ network, has announced plans to launch Nickelodeon
SlimeFest, the first multi-day music festival for kids and families
in the U.S. Coming next year, the festival will feature performances by
top recording artists, immersive one-of-a-kind experiences, Nickelodeon
stars and characters, and plenty of the network’s signature green slime.
More details including dates, venue and performer lineup will be
announced soon. The news was announced at Nickelodeon’s Upfront
presentation, held today in New York City.
“Nickelodeon SlimeFest will combine the best of our brand with
all the things we know kids love—pop music, family time and incredibly
cool interactive experiences that they can’t get anywhere else,” said
Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. “Part music festival and
part giant party for the entire family, SlimeFest will bring
Nickelodeon to life in a completely new way.”
Nickelodeon SlimeFest has seen success around the globe as a
slime-filled, multiplatform music and entertainment event since its
inception in Australia in 2012. The event has expanded year over year
and currently takes place in additional markets including the U.K.,
Spain, Italy and South Africa.
In addition to Nickelodeon creating on-the-ground and immersive
real-world experiences for its audience, the brand continues to be the
top kids’ entertainment destination. Nickelodeon year to date is the
number-one kids’ network, with the top shows on all TV in every key
demo–the top 10 among Kids 2-11; nine of the top 10 with Kids 6-11; and
six of the top 10 shows for Kids 2-5. Nick recently marked its third
straight year at number one with kids, outpacing the competition most
recently in 2016 by double digits. Nickelodeon also had the top shows in
every demo in 2016: nine out of the top 10 with Kids 2-11; six of the
top 10 with Kids 6-11; and six of the top 10 preschool programs.
Nickelodeon, now in its 37th year, is the number-one entertainment brand
for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first
in everything it does. The company includes television programming and
production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer
products, online, recreation, books and feature films. Nickelodeon’s
U.S. television network is seen in more than 90 million households and
has been the number-one-rated basic cable network for 20 consecutive
years. For more information or artwork, visit http://www.nickpress.com.
