Yoko is curating the festival and has recruited Boy George, Patti Smith, Iggy & The Stooges and Marianne Faithfull to perform for the 20th anniversary of the music festival.

Yoko and her son Sean will perform the 1980 ‘Double Fantasy’ album. It was John’s comeback album in 1980, after 5 years of being a house-husband and raising Sean. It was also the album John & Yoko had in the charts at the time of John’s death.

‘Double Fantasy’ was released on November 17, 1980. John died on December 8, 1980.

The album went on to become the 1981 Album of the Year at the 24th Annual Grammy Awards. It featured John’s ‘(Just Like) Starting Over’, ‘Watching The Wheels’ and ‘Woman’ as well as Yoko’s ‘Kiss Kiss Kiss’, ‘Yes I’m Your Angel’ and ‘Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him’.

Yoko and Sean will perform with the Plastic Ono Band on June 14.
