Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 60-year reign with a star-studded concert on June 4.

A royal milestone — like 60 years on the throne — deserves a massive party.

Paul McCartney, Elton John, Jessie J and more are lending their voices to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee with a June 4 concert.

Announcing the line-up Tuesday, organizer Gary Barlow told the BBC the party is “taking it outside the palace” putting stages around the Queen Victoria Memorial outside of the gates of Buckingham Palace.

Prince William and Prince Harry are also getting involved, and both “have requested artists,” People reports. The concert will also feature performances by Annie Lennox, Tom Jones and Alfie Boe. Expect more artist announcements in the coming weeks. One name on the rumored-performers list: Adele.

Tickets to the Diamond Jubilee concert are free; members of the public can apply for one of the 10,000 tickets on the Diamond Jubilee‘s website. Highlights from the show will air on ABC on June 5.
