2021 Illuminations Switch-On

First acts announced for this year's Switch-On.

We can now reveal details of some of the performers who will take to the stage at this year’s Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On concert. 

2020’s biggest breakthrough artist, KSI, will perform  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 will join the stage with his special guests Digital Farm Animals and music artist and producer S-X.

Few UK pop artists have made such an instant commercial impact as Staffordshire-born Wes Nelson, who will also join this year's line-up. Capitalising on his popularity after stints on Love Island and Dancing On Ice, Wes’s Gold Certified debut single See Nobody stormed up the UK charts reaching number 3 and achieving over 70m streams.

The evening is produced in association with MTV, and the show will be hosted by TV and radio presenter Becca Dudley.
