Internet Sensations Max and Harvey to Perform at Nickelodeon SLIMEFEST 2018 UK

Internet sensations Max and Harvey have completed the resident act line up for this year’s SLIMEFEST in partnership with VisitBlackpool from 20th - 22nd October at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach!


Max and Harvey said “We are so excited to be performers at SLIMEFEST 2018!! We can't wait to see our fans and hang out with the other artists. We're ready to see everyone get slimed!"

Max and Harvey’s refreshingly fun and authentic sound has connected with fans across the globe – earning them over 17M views on their YouTube channel. The 15-year-old Berkshire based twin brothers got their start two years ago, posting covers and original songs on their social media platforms. Now with over 5M followers on Musically and over 800k followers on Instagram, the boys, who are signed to RMI recordings, are focusing on their original music. The boys were nominated for “Social Star” at the 2018 iHeart Radio Awards, completed a UK headlining tour, as well as releasing a book and documentary, so they show no signs of slowing down.


Councillor Gillian Campbell, the Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council said: “We cannot wait to welcome Max and Harvey to this year’s SLIMEFEST and we know everyone attending this year’s shows are going to be so excited to see them. More fabulous acts will be revealed shortly.”

Last year’s slime-filled music shows were a huge success with parents and kids alike. JoJo Siwa and Diversity are both returning to the SLIMEFEST stage this October as well as hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely. Further headlining and supporting acts to be announced in the coming months.
