2021 Illuminations Switch-On

Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On 2021

2020’s biggest breakthrough artist, KSI, and one of the UK's most successful indie bands, The Wombats, performed in the world-famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom on the night of Friday 3 September to mark the start of a four-month extended Illuminations season. KSI joined the stage with his special guests Digital Farm Animals and music artist and producer S-X. Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Ella Henderson and Wes Nelson also joined this year's star-studded line-up. 

Shirley Ballas, one of the world’s most accomplished dancers and now head judge on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing, pulled the switch, triggering the start of a four-month extended Illuminations season. The evening was produced in association with MTV, and the show was hosted by TV and radio presenter Becca Dudley.
