Back in October last year, Buckingham Palace announced the official date of the king's coronation Charles the Third (74). Namely, the coronation is scheduled for May 8, in Westminster Abbey, and his wife the queen will also be crowned there. Camilla Parker-Bowles (75). The entire ceremony will begin two days earlier, on May 6, and the importance of this historic event is also that this is the first coronation in 70 years.

Everything is set for Charles III's upcoming coronation in May, and Spotify has just released the official Coronation Celebration playlist, with an impressive line-up of British legends and contemporary pop stars sure to get you in a festive mood.

The 27-song playlist, selected by the UK's Department for Digital, Cultural Media and Sport, includes classics such as We Are the Champions by Quinn and "Let's Dance" on David Bowie.

In addition to these legendary tracks, the playlist also contains some modern pop hits from stars like Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran and Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) on Kate Bush, which gained renewed popularity thanks to Season 4 of Stranger Things.

The Coronation Celebration playlist opens with The Beatles' 'Come Together' and ends with 'King' by British synth-pop trio Years & Years. However, it is worth noting that the Rolling Stones, arguably Britain's greatest live band, are notably absent.
