Following on from the success of the 2016 event, VisitBlackpool are opening the ticket registration early, allowing people more time to register for the 2017 event.
Known as the biggest night in the resort’s calendar, the event will take place on Friday 1 September 2017 and will feature a host of top music and entertainment stars as well as the big moment when the resort’s stunning light display is turned on for the first time.
And the best thing is, it’s free to attend – all you have to do is enter the ballot to win tickets.
People can put their name in the hat by registering at www.visitblackpool.com/switchon for their chance to receive up to four tickets per household.
The ballot results will be announced late July 2017.
Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “Switch-On night is without doubt the biggest night in Blackpool’s calendar and is unbelievably popular with more than locals and visitors to the resort.
“The 2016 event featured some of the biggest names in British music and entertainment, given its popularity year on year we want to give people longer to register for wristbands.
“I would urge people to apply for their wristbands now – if you’re successful, it will undoubtedly be the best free night out you’ll ever have.”
With a capacity of 20,000 for Switch-On night, the event will be held on the Tower Festival Headland and attracts visitors from all over the UK as well as locals who will have a dedicated allocation of tickets just for them.
Full details of the line-ups ticketing details and VIP packages, will be revealed in 2017.
