Meet The Impressive Headliners Performing At The Queen’s Platinum Party At The Palace

What a way to ring in a seven decade rule.

The Queen is in for a right royal ripper, by anyone’s standards. In celebration of her 70th year as Britain’s reigning Monarch, a giant palace bash will be hosted by the royal family, one that will see major artists from across the world perform in a spectacular fashion before Buckingham Palace. 

The Platinum Party At The Palace will see some 10,000 lucky ballot winners party the night away with live music, dance groups, and famed television and sporting icons who’ll take to the stage on the evening of Saturday, June 4—the third of four jam-packed days of events. 

Lucky for Australians (and the hundreds of thousands across the world who’ll be tuning in), the performances will be broadcast on television. Below, everything you need to know about the event—and the key headliners to look out for.
