Blackpool Illuminations is Britain’s most famous light show and one of the most iconic sights of British culture.
Each year the Blackpool Illuminations team work tirelessly to create a new and different display that will continue to keep the crowds coming back to Blackpool.
The Switch On event on the 29th August marks the start of a three day festival of entertainment. The full line up for the Friday night Switch On concert has now been announced with chart toppers Little Mix headlining the show with a live performance of all their biggest hits.
One of Britain’s best loved comedians, Peter Kay, will switch on this year’s Blackpool Illuminations after the live performance from Little Mix.
Chart stars Pixie Lott, Union J, Neon Jungle, George Ezra and Matt Cardle will also join the star-studded line up on Friday 29th August on the Tower Festival Headland.
