As the calendar draws close to the NickFest spectecular, we rounded up all the deets you need to know to add an extra spice of FOMO! The second edition of the country’s biggest and most exciting family-centric festival will be held at the TicketPro Dome, on the 25-26 of March 2017.
Minnie Dlamini will undoubtedly be the center of attention as she is set to co-host the star-studded festival. Dubbed Diamond by those close to her, the bubbly TV personality and actress will make up a dream team with funny trio and fellow co-hosts Nicholas, Jason and Donovan Goliath, aka Goliath & Goliath, as they host the 2-day spectacular in front of thousands of kids and families.
Award-winning pop diva Shekhinah and hip-hop maverick Nasty C are slated to keep the crowd buzzing with noise for the two day festival. The Back to the Beach songbird and the Hell Nah wordsmith will be performing their biggest hits, and busting some cool moves on the NickFest stage in front of thousands of pre-schoolers, tweens and teens and their families. Each artist will perform at The Dome with 2 performances every day on the central stage. Further musicians and performers will be announced at a later stage.
This year’s NickFest 2017 promises an amazing weekend of fun for all the family as the music will be coupled with interactive zones, kid-friendly activities, and themed areas where Nickelodeon characters and programmes will be brought to life. Fit for both adults and children, the exciting character shows and appearances by Nickelodeon superstars SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, plus loveable pups Chase and Marshall from Paw Patrol will be in full force to provide much of the excitement.
