The free wristband ballot for the Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On event in 2019 is open – click here to register today.

It follows the unprecedented demand for last year’s event when a capacity audience packed the Tower Festival Headland Arena to watch a spectacular five-hour concert featuring HRVY, Ella Eyre, Rae Morris, R3wire & Varski and Diversity, culminating in an unforgettable switch-on by international music star, Alfie Boe.

Since then, we have been swamped with requests for information on next year’s event, which will take place on Friday 30 August. It will once again feature a star-studded concert produced in association with MTV.

And the best thing is, it’s still free to register – all you have to do is enter the ballot to win wristbands.

Register here now –

Watch this space for more details about the event and who will be flicking that famous swtich, which will be announced a little later in the year.
