Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “Last year’s Switch-On weekend was a resounding success and, as a result, we’re incredibly excited for this year. “The feedback on The Sands Venue hosting VIP guests was extremely positive last year and therefore we’re delighted to be returning for a second year in a row.

“We’re sure people will have a fantastic time again. “I hope everyone is looking forward to it as much as I am.” A host of top music and comedy stars are lined up for Blackpool iFest – the new name for Blackpool’s illuminations switch-on weekend.

Hollywood megastar, Tim Burton, who is a huge fan of the resort and shot his upcoming film, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” here earlier this year, is this year’s Friday night Switch-On star. Meanwhile, The Vamps, Lawson, Professor Green, Toploader and Little Boots are among the huge names headlining the star-studded Friday night concert.

Saturday night’s show is a vintage pop concert featuring Bananarama, Jason Donovan and Paul Young among a host of top names from the eighties. Our Sunday night show, meanwhile, features an incredible evening of comedy featuring Al Murray – The Pub Landlord – and a host of other top names.
