Bolton comedian Peter Kay will flick the switch to turn on this year's Blackpool Illuminations.
Girl Band Little Mix will also perform at the event on Friday 29 August.
– Cllr Graham Cain, Cabinet Member for Tourism and Leisure, Blackpool Council
"Having Peter Kay as this year's Switch On star is a major coup for Blackpool.
"Peter is the most successful comedy act in this country over the past 20 years and has a long association with Blackpool.
"We are thrilled that he will be joining the Switch-On hall of fame.
“I am also delighted to announce that Little Mix will headline the Friday night concert.
"They received rave reviews when they played to a sell-out crowd at the Winter Gardens recently and I’m sure this news will delight fans.
“Our Switch on line-up is now complete and it promises to be a fantastic night to launch the 2014 illuminations season.”
