International DJ revealed for Christmas Lights switch-on

Saturday, 4 November 2017
Albert Square



Albert Square will be the setting for the biggest show in the city as stars of stage and screen come out in force on Saturday, 4 November – topped off by a huge 10-minute firework display.

Following a string of chart success, SIGALA is the first superstar DJ to appear at the Manchester Christmas Lights switch-on event. The “Came Here For Love” hit maker is in high demand and is a rising star on the international DJ scene, with a huge following and millions of views on YouTube.

After working with huge names like Nile Rogers, Sigalas’ most recent track with Ella Eyre stormed the charts earlier this year and the superstar in the making is going to raise the roof at this year’s Christmas Lights show.

Tokio Myers, the multi-instrumentalist who studied at Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music, and this year’s winner of Britain’s Got Talent will be this year’s main support act. The virtuoso pianist is used to the big stage, supporting Kanye and Lianne La Havas as a musician in the past – but now it’s his turn!

The stars of the city’s theatres will also be out in force. The cast of the hit-comedy stage show ELF: The Musical playing at The Lowry will grace the stage, followed by the cast of Shrek, Guys and Dolls, and Street Dance from The Dancehouse.

As always the event is completely free, just get the family together and wrap up warm.
