Jonas Blue and M.O Join Nickelodeon SLIMEFEST 2018 UK Line Up

Jonas Blue and M.O Join The SLIMEFEST Line Up



UK - Jonas Blue and M.O are the next acts confirmed to play during SLIMEFEST in partnership with VisitBlackpool from 20th - 22nd October at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach! They join performers Max and Harvey, JoJo Siwa and Diversity as well as a special appearance from Kira Kosarin of the The Thundermans with Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely returning as hosts. The full schedule and line up will be confirmed in the coming months.

Jonas Blue said “I’m so excited to play for you all at SLIMEFEST in October, see you at the slime pit!”


Born and raised in London, MTV EMA and BRIT Award nominee Jonas Blue has taken the music industry by storm with over 3.5 billion streams. His debut single ‘Fast Car’ featured the vocal talents of Dakota and quickly became a certified global smash selling over 6 million records worldwide, up next was ‘Perfect Strangers’, which peaked at #2 on the UK Official Singles Chart, spent 10 weeks in the UK Top 10 and has so far reached global sales of over 3 million.

M.O said “We had the best time at SLIMEFEST last year and can’t wait to be back performing in Blackpool – and get slimey too of course!”.


M.O scored their first top 20 hit on the official single chart last summer with “Who Do You Think Of?”, they’ve since released “Not In Love” and their new summer smash “Bad Vibe” featuring Mr Eazi and Lotto Boyz. They performed at last year’s SLIMEFEST. This summer they will be performing with Rita Ora and Not3s as well as playing at festivals over and working on their debut album.

Councillor Gillian Campbell, the Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council said: “We are thrilled to see more talent being lined up for the SLIMEFEST shows in Blackpool. We know from the huge success of last year’s shows that the audiences can expect another spectacular mix of music and mayhem!”

Last year’s slime-filled music shows were a huge success with kids and parents 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.
