The ‘Platinum Party at the Palace’ will be aired and broadcast live by the BBC featuring some of the world’s biggest entertainment stars.
It will be broadcast all over the world, live from The Queen’s central London residence, with tickets available to members of the public.
People will be able to apply for tickets in a ballot to attend the special one-off concert to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years as monarch.
Details of the ballot for UK residents to try and secure tickets to the special event will be announced closer to the time.
A palace spokesperson said the event “will bring together some of the world’s biggest entertainment stars to celebrate the most significant and joyous moments from The Queen’s seven-decade reign”.
It is likely that the huge bash will be similar to the Golden Jubilee concert in 2002 and the Diamond Jubilee concert in 2012.
At the concert in 2012 there were 10,000 tickets made available to the public with a balloting system – with 1.2million applying.
A further 500,000 or so people watched the concert on giant TV screens in The Mall and local parks.
Robbie Williams, Sir Elton John, Dame Shirley Bassey and Kylie Minogue were some of the star studded names to perform in 2012.
Madness was given the honour of performing on the roof of Buckingham Palace, similar to Queen in 2002 who played the National Anthem.
The Queen will also enjoy The Derby at Epsom Downs with members of the Royal Family and a live concert at Buckingham Palace involving “some of the world’s biggest entertainment stars”.
