Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet – the greatest soundtrack ever sold

There’s no doubt the 90s were memorable – for all the right (and probably wrong) reasons. You might look back fondly or send a silent prayer of thanks that there was no social media to record your sartorial choices.  But whether you were celebrating girl power or preferred a more grunge approach, there’s no doubt there was some truly classic music produced in this era.

And in 1996, arguably the most iconic film of the last 20 years, Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, completely changed the rules when it came to screen adaptations of Shakespeare. With his incomparable take on the classic love story, and the stellar talents of a young Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio, this film was an instant cult classic.

It’s been said that Baz Luhrmann turned the greatest love story ever told into the greatest soundtrack ever sold and with tracks from everyone from The Cardigans to Radiohead to Everclear to Garbage we’d agree.

Young Hearts Run Free, at our incredible Outdoor Stage, features the soundtrack and imagery from the film, played live by a stellar line-up of musicians fronted by Tom Dickins. Followed by a DJ set straight from the 90s, this will be a party like no other.
