Buckingham Palace is keeping tight-lipped about a concert commemorating Queen Elizabeth II's 70 years on the throne.

February 6 marks 70 years on the throne for The Queen. Celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee will begin this summer, including concerts and pageantry between June 2 to 4.


Music-filled celebrations

Four hundred musicians will be part of The Queen's Birthday Parade on June 2 as 1,400 soldiers and 200 horses parade for the Royal Family.

"Beginning at Buckingham Palace, the Parade will move down The Mall to Horse Guard's Parade, joined by Members of the Royal Family on horseback and in carriages," Buckingham Palace says in a news release.

This event is open for the public to purchase tickets to.

A BBC-broadcast Platinum Party at the Palace concert on Saturday, June 4 "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."

Details on who will be performing at the commemorating concert have not been released.

The Platinum Party at the Palace concert will include members of the public, who can apply to attend. The release says ticket details will be released in February.

On Sunday, The Platinum Jubilee Pageant will include musicians, street art, theatre, and other artists.

"The London-based Pageant will combine pomp and ceremony, street arts, theatre, music, circus, costumes as well as cutting-edge visual technology, drawing on talent from every part of the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth."

The Norwich Pipe Band and the Hunstanton Band will play at the lighting of the Sandringham beacon in the Royal Parkland that weekend.

Before the June festivities, a Platinum Jubilee Celebration will be happening on May 12-15 on Windsor Castle grounds.

"The production will take the audience on a gallop through history from Elizabeth I to the present day."

More than 500 horses and 1,000 performers including musicians and dancers are expected to be part of the event.
