TOP DJS & MUSICIANS JOIN MAFIKIZOLO & CASSPER NYOVEST FOR NICKELODEON’S AWESOME WEEKEND OF FAMILY FUN, SUN, SLIME & MUSIC AT USHAKA MARINE WORLD
Durban, 16 March 2017: Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305) and uShaka Marine World just pumped up the volume on the first Africa edition of SlimeFest, due to take place at Durban’s uShaka Marine World on 8 & 9 April, adding Emtee, K.O, The Kiffness, Twins On Decks and Timo ODV to the concert line-up.
The Kiffness, Twins on Decks, Emtee, Timo ODV and K.O join previously announced artists Cassper Nyovest and Mafikizolo for a spectacular family-friendly jamboree of music, Nickelodeon TV characters, and lots and lots of slime – as uShaka Marine World is transformed into a icky, sticky, squelchy green and orange paradise for all the family to enjoy.
Older kids will delight in a host of games and day-long activities: head for the interactive Slime Zone for an epic Slime Blaster Battle: take a relaxing Slime Shower, slither around on the Zorb Ball Slime Pool; or get to grips with your arch-enemy during a bout of Slime Sumo. For the younger kids, there’ll be singalongs from their favourite Nickelodeon characters including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora & Friends, Chase & Marshall from Paw Patrol, and those green amphibious heroes, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A dedicated Pre School Zone for very young children will be hosted in the Kids’ Corner. Commented Chris Torline, Senior Digital & Marketing Director, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, “Nickelodeon’s SlimeFest is the most-anticipated family-friendly music festival of the year, bringing together star power, stunts, live music and tons of green slime for the ultimate family day out. With our entertaining hosts Joey Rasdien and Nomzamo Mbatha at the helm, and a truly amazing line-up of performers and celebrity guests, SlimeFest has something for kids of all ages!”
