It’s the biggest night in Blackpool’s events calendar. Every year, up to 20,000 people descend on Blackpool Promenade for this free musical extravaganza to watch their favourite pop stars perform before the Illuminations are switched on for another season.

The 2017 event will be staged on the Tower Festival Headland on Friday 1 September with MTV – one of the world’s biggest entertainment and music channels – partnering with VisitBlackpool to deliver another unforgettable night.

Last year saw the likes of The Vamps, Fleur East, Diversity, Imani, Fatman Scoop and R3wire and Varski take to the stage before Dame Barbara Windsor flicked the switch to turn on the famous Lights.

Who will follow in their footsteps? Full details will be announced very soon!
