Slimefest to hit NickelodeonAlso, from The Telegraph's 'Sydney Confidential' column:
Nickelodeon Australia is delighted to announce today that a brand NEW wave of slime is coming in the form of Slimefest, which is set to be Australia's first music festival created especially for tweens.
Taking place at Sydney's Hordern Pavilion on Saturday September 15, SLIMEFEST is set to be a next-level concert experience combining all the best elements of Nickelodeon's mega-popular Kids' Choice Awards (KCAs) events: music, stars, stunts, and of course - Nickelodeon's trademark slime.
Artists already confirmed to rock the arena for SLIMEFEST include JESSICA MAUBOY, REECE MASTIN, JUSTICE CREW, STAN WALKER and JOHNNY RUFFO. Jess, Justice Crew and Stan are all Australian KCAs veterans, having been previous nominees as well as performers, and are very familiar with the massive excitement that a Nickelodeon concert event generates.
General Manager of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand, Ben Richardson, said, "Fans of the Australian KCAs can expect SLIMEFEST to be a next-level concert experience, injected with spectacular slime stunts. It will be an event that kids and tweens all over Australia will want to be part of, and we'll be making sure they can, no matter where they are. We're planning audience participation in the arena as well as fan integration into the show through social media, with details to be revealed in the coming weeks after tickets go on sale.
"Of course we will also be giving the show a national broadcast, extending the excitement to kids and tweens at home. Our mission with this new event is to deliver the Kids' Choice Awards slime experience to more kids and tweens than ever before - watch out for some sliming world records to be broken!"
Nickelodeon's Slimefest is first music festival for tweens headlined by Jessica Mauboy, Reece Mastin and Justice CrewAlso, below is a video news report about Nickelodeon Australia's new SLIMEFEST music festival from The Telegraph:
WHAT's green and goes pop? Slimefest, Australia's first music festival for tweens, headlined by our most successful TV talent quest graduates.
Jessica Mauboy, Reece Mastin, Justice Crew, Stan Walker and Johnny Ruffo have already signed on for the event at the Hordern Pavilion in Moore Park, Sydney, on September 15.

Picture: Cameron RichardsonSlimefest is the brainchild of bosses at Nickelodeon, who decided to spin off their wildly successful Kids' Choice Awards into an all-day event catering for children too big for the Wiggles but not big enough for Big Day Out.
"There's all these festivals out there but there are certain age limits so this one is for them," Mauboy said.
While Slimefest won't have beer queues, it will share one festival must-have with its older brother and sister events - gumboots to protect feet, but from slime instead of mud.
"That's a big advantage this festival will have - you don't get slimed at the other festivals. I'm just hoping it's lime or apple-flavoured," Ruffo said.
Tickets go on sale on July 27 and Nickelodeon has plans for a social media campaign to allow viewers not at the event to feel a part of it. If the inaugural Slimefest is successful, it may be taken nationally next year.
Meanwhile, Big Day Out will reveal the line-up for the 2013 event on Monday.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are rumoured to be headlining.

New Australian Underage Music Festival Slimefest Announced - Especially For Tweens!
With major music events like Harvest, Falls, Parklife, Fat As Butter, Stereosonic and Queenscliff Music Festival all recently announcing their lineups - along with Big Day Out just around the corner - we think it's safe to say festival season fever is mounting!
But what about those of us under 18?! (for the purpose of this article let's pretend the Take 40 team are underage) Never fear, because Slimefest is here! The first major event created just for us -- and all teenagers in Australia!
With Jessica Mauboy, Reece Mastin, Justice Crew, Stan Walker and Johnny Ruffo all signing on to the festival, scheduled for an appearance at Sydney's Hordern Pavilion on September 15, it's guaranteed to get the tweens out and into music, just like their 18+ siblings!
"There's all these festivals out there but there are certain age limits so this one is for them," says headliner and Australian Idol runner-up Jessica Mauboy. Slimefest is aimed at kids who aren't old enough for the serious music festivals but still want to get out and experience some live music.
Run by Nickelodeon, who regularly use slime in their bevy of kids-targeted game shows. "That's a big advantage this festival will have," says X Factor finalist, Johnny Ruffo, "you don't get slimed at the other festivals. I'm just hoping it's lime or apple-flavoured."
Tickets for the tween music festival to go on sale on July 27, and if the inaugural event proves big enough, it may be taken nationally next year.
