I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.
After the success of the first shows last year, SLIMEFEST, Nickelodeon's annual, family-friendly music event, will return in September. And it's set to be even bigger the second time round.
As well as the concert experience, this year there will also be a special carnival area located just inside the entrance. Entry will be free and open to the general pubic, with games, rides, food, drinks and merchandise to enjoy.
Changes have been made to the concerts themselves too. They will now be held at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre, taking place on Friday September 27 at 11.00am and 6.00pm (both concerts are the same and they last for 90 minutes each).
The concerts will be hosted by Luke and Wyatt and while the SLIMEFEST line-up is still being announced, big names have already been locked in to appear. Headlining this year's event will be Nick favourites Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan of Big Time Rush, who will be making their first trip to Australia for the shows.
Lead singer Kendall is pretty excited, saying "I think it's about time, after four years of Big Time Rush, that we finally come out to see our Aussie Rushers. You guys better be ready to have a good time because we're ready to put on a great show".
Along with the music performances, SLIMEFEST will also feature some crazy stunts and, of course, Nickelodeon's trademark slime. If you're in the kids-only Premium Mosh ($99.00), you'll probably even get slimed yourself!
Other ticket options include GA Standing, Reserved Seating and Floor Seating. These all cost $64.90 and can be purchased through Ticketek.
Alternatively, you can win some tickets by participating in Nickelodeon's Gif-Tastic Dance competition. Everyone who creates their own Gif-tastic Dance goes into the running for a chance to win not only tickets, but a whole VIP experience, including a meet-and-greet with Big Time Rush.
If you can't make it to the concert at all, you may still be able to catch it on TV. Last year the second show was broadcast live on Nickelodeon (a broadcast which recently won the ASTRA Award for Most Outstanding Music Program or Coverage). No announcement has been made yet on whether a similar screening will take place this year, but it's something to look out for.
Not happy at all as there was meant to be a parents section at the back of the mosh pit, my kids couldn't see as they had parents stand in front of them some with their kids on top of their shoulders. What a waste of money!
