Stars from the music, TV, stage and sports worlds will meet on three stages for the two and a half hour event to mark the anniversary
Queen and Adam Lambert will perform a unique performance to commemorate the (real) Queen’s 70 years on the throne at the BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace.
It’s been 20 years since guitarist Brian May performed “God Save The Queen” on the roof of Buckingham Palace as part of a similar Golden Jubilee event in 2002.
The Platinum concert includes three stages and 3D projections over the facade of the palace.
Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Who else is performing?
Alicia Keys, Nile Rodgers and Andrea Bocelli will also play during the two and a half hour event on Saturday June 4th.
The line-up will also include Duran Duran, Bond composer Hans Zimmer, Ella Eyre, Craig David, Mabel, Elbow and George Ezra.
Andrew Lloyd Webber will curate the final portion of the show, which will include a special performance by Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as performances by the cast of The Phantom Of The Opera, Hamilton, Six, The Lion King and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
The evening will culminate with a performance by soul queen Diana Ross, making her first live performance in the UK in 15 years.
The evening also features performances by athletes and stars of stage and screen.
Dance troupe and Britain’s Got Talent winners, Diversity, will also perform.
Can I get tickets?
The event will be attended by 22,000 people, with 10,000 tickets being offered through a public vote and 7,500 reserved for key workers, military personnel, volunteers and charity workers.
The public vote opened on February 24th and closed on March 23rd.
The BBC says: “Election winners will be contacted directly via email in due course.”
Successful applicants will receive access to the event on their mobile phones with a QR code.
Along with their tickets, all guests must present two types of ID, one of which must be photographic (e.g. passport or driver’s license with photo) and the other must identify your current residential address.
Ticket holders are responsible for their own travel to Buckingham Palace and their own accommodation.
There is no parking available, so guests are advised to take public transport to the location.
How can I watch it on TV?
TV coverage of the event will be directed by Kirsty Young and Roman Kemp.
The Platinum Party At The Palace concert will be broadcast live on BBC One and radio on Saturday 4 June from 7.30pm.
Screens broadcasting the concert and other anniversary events will also be set up at The Mall and St James’s Park in London, Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh and Bute Park in Cardiff over the bank holiday weekend.
In London, screens showing the BBC’s live feed will be placed in The Mall and St James’s Park.
In Edinburgh, screens will be set up in Princes Street Gardens allowing thousands to enjoy picnics and follow the celebrations against a backdrop of Edinburgh Castle and the entertainment of the Royal Marines and local artists.
Bute Park, a Grade I listed park in the heart of Cardiff city centre, is the setting for an afternoon of celebrations with families invited to enjoy the Jubilee Competition on a big screen along with entertainment from the Bandstand.
The BBC is also offering local communities a special one-time television license waiver so they can show it on a big screen they organize themselves.
The plans will allow revelers in city halls, community centers and streets to show live programming throughout the weekend without having to purchase a license.
