Just checked the definitions for ,slated.

Lucky I did. In Britain, apart from putting slates on a roof slated is used to mean reprimand or tell off in very strong terms.

I thought it a bit heavy that the book festival had been slated before it has even started.

I did not realise it means to plan or schedule also. A new one on me.

Just us Brits I'm afraid.

All the best,
