Time Out says
Have the slime of your life at this epic all-ages summer festival
Are you ready to get green? Nickelodeon SlimeFest is returning to Chicago for another huge weekend of music, activities, star encounters and of course, more slime than ever!
On June 8 and 9, Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island will host one of the country’s most popular family festivals – and tickets are on sale right now. There are heaps of reasons for kids, teens and adults to get excited, but the biggest factor has to be the seriously impressive music line-up. Topping the bill is Miami’s own Pitbull – Grammy award-winning rapper extraordinaire (and motivational speaker!). You’ll also get to see singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha, T-Pain, and YouTube celeb JoJo Siwa (yep, the one with the bows), who recently dropped her super-catchy single, ‘Bop’.
And speaking of big stars, fans of hit Nickelodeon shows will get the chance to see some of their favourite stars in person, including Annie LeBlanc (‘Annie vs. Hayley) and Dallas Dupree Young (‘Cousins for Life’).
Of course, it wouldn’t be Nickelodeon SlimeFest without the gooey green stuff – and you’re guaranteed bucketloads of it. Active little ones can also slip down a giant inflatable slide, weave through a huge maze, soar through the air on an oversized bag jump, and dance the day away in the silent disco.
We know, we know – it’s a lot to fit into one day! There are a bunch of different ticket options to choose from, from general admission to three different VIP levels, all of which get you a meet and greet with JoJo Siwa. Admission is free for children two and under, and all artists will perform on both days.
