'The Thundermans' Star Kira Kosarin to Make Special Appearance at Nickelodeon SLIMEFEST 2018 UK [Updated]

Nickelodeon UK & Ireland has announced the super news that The Thundermans star Kira Kosarin will be making a special appearance at this year's SLIMEFEST, in partnership with VisitBlackpool from 20th - 22nd October at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach!


What do you get when you combine the Nation’s favourite family performers and over 7,000 gallons of Slime? Nickelodeon’s SLIMEFEST! One of the largest family events in the UK, SLIMEFEST is also the only one its kind!

Now in its third year, SLIMEFEST is firmly fixed in the consciousness of 5-14 year olds. This October Half Term, 12,000 kids and their families from across the UK will flock to Blackpool Pleasure Beach for more slime, music and mayhem across 3 days and 6 shows.

Nickelodeon's first two slime-filled music shows in 2016 and 2017 were a huge success with parents and kids alike, with JoJo making her UK performance debut with hit songs including “Boomerang” and Diversity showcasing their gravity-defying dance routines. Kira, who will be making her second appearance at SLIMEFEST UK, following her first appearance at Nickelodeon's inaugural SLIMEFEST in 2016, will be joined by JoJo Siwa and Diversity, who are also both returning to the SLIMEFEST stage this October, as well as returning hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, and internet sensations Max and Harvey, who will be performing at the show. Further headlining and supporting acts to be announced in the coming months.

Families can visit nick.co.uk/slimefest for more information on the music and slime-filled events.

Please note: Due to overwhelming demand, SLIMEFEST is now completely sold out. Competitions will be running across the summer on Nickelodeon UK’s official social channels, website as well as on VisitBlackpool’s website – so please check the platforms for more information on how to enter.

Over 12,000 people attended the six sold out shows in 2017 with performances from Diversity along with 7 chart topping acts: Pixie Lott, The Vamps, Professor Green, Matt Terry, New Hope Club, 5 After Midnight and M.O. JoJo Siwa also made her UK performance debut. School of Rock stars Breanna Yde and Ricardo Hurtado featured as special guests.

The Thundermans Star Kira Kosarin Joins the SLIMEFEST Line-Up!


Actress and singer Kira Kosarin, star of the hit Nickelodeon TV series The Thundermans joins the resident act line up for this year’s sold out SLIMEFEST.

Kira Kosarin joins the resident line up for this year’s SLIMEFEST in partnership with VisitBlackpool from 20th - 22nd October at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Kira Kosarin said “I love the UK and can’t wait to be back in Blackpool to see all the amazing fans . . . hopefully covered in slime!”

Kira, who boasts over 3M followers on Instagram, stars in The Thundermans, as one of teenage twins Phoebe alongside Max (Jack Griffo). Together they take sibling rivalry to superhuman heights.

If living in a family of extraordinary superheroes wasn’t difficult enough, Phoebe and Max go to the same high school and must juggle friends, crushes and their dislike of each other all whilst trying to keep their true identities secret.

With 4 seasons and over 100 episodes, The Thundermans is the #2 live action show on cable and satellite kids TV in the UK*, reaching a total of 3.3 million since October 2017. Nickelodeon UK will air the final season later this year. Kira also released her debut single Spy in March and has over 1M views on her YouTube channel.

Councillor Gillian Campbell, the Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Kira back to SLIMEFEST this year in Blackpool and it’s looking like another fantastic line-up for everyone visiting in October.”

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.
