After the year that everyone’s been through, we’re aiming to make next summer into the kind of party we all deserve,” says Simon Le Bon from Duran Duran.

We have always finished each year with a huge party and we need one now more than ever. It’s therefore with our enormous thanks to Duran Duran that they have made it possible to bring their incredible hit-packed live show to Hyde Park just when we all needed it most.
