Pleasure Beach To Host Refreshed Slimefest

The average altBlackpool reader probably isn’t in the Slimefest cognoscenti, but may know younger culture vultures in the target audience.  If so, tell them that following two sellout concerts at the Winter Gardens in 2016 it returns this October at a new home in the form of the Pleasure Beach Arena.

Among the acts already confirmed for this year’s Slimefest is JoJo Siwa.  The 14 year old singer and dancer will be performing her hit single ‘Boomerang’ live and exclusively for the first time, as well as other new songs.  JoJo has 5.8 million followers on Instagram and over 600 million views on her Youtube channel.

Councillor Gillian Campbell, the Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “We are delighted to welcome JoJo to Slimefest Blackpool in October. She’s a perfect fit with Blackpool’s family market. We are excited that she’s joining us for her first UK music performances and it is fantastic news that she will be appearing at all six shows.”

JoJo Siwa said “I’m so super excited to perform in the U.K. at SlimeFest! I love my U.K. fans so much and performing for them is going to be so much fun! I cannot wait!”

JoJo will be performing alongside street dance troupe Diversity, with special appearances from the stars of Nickelodeon’s School of Rock Breanna Yde and Ricardo Hurtado. More music acts will be announced in due course.

Concerts will take place at 1pm and 6pm each day from 21 to 23 October. Ticket options include seated arena tickets or, exclusively available to kids, Slime Pit tickets where attendees can get closer to the stars and are sure to get slimy.
