Bloc Party are to celebrate their 20th anniversary with a huge homecoming date.

The indie rockers - led by Kele Okereke - will play London's Crystal Palace Park on Sunday 7th July 2024 - marking their biggest show to date.

The milestone date will see the band perform Silent Alarm and their greatest hits at the outdoor gig, with special guests in The Hives, Friendly Fires, The Mysterines and Connie Constance.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 8th December from 10am.

Frontman Kele Okereke said of the news: “We've been having so much fun playing shows over the past year, so it makes sense to do something special for old and new fans, celebrating twenty years of Bloc Party. We heard from a lot of people that they couldn't get tickets for the Silent Alarm gigs, so a one-off summer party playing that and the bangers feels like the right thing to do.”
