Simon Jones, the band’s PR confirmed that there are plans for the anniversary. He said, “There will be a brand new 1D anniversary website, a 10-year celebration video especially made for their fans, and interactive playlists and activations across digital platforms.”

A special ‘10 Years of One Direction’ website will come out on July 23. It is said to be an immersive and exciting interactive fan experience.

“The site will take the form of a timeline charting the history of the group, from the first audition right up to the start of their hiatus. It will host an archive of music videos, artwork, TV performances, behind-the-scenes and rarely-seen content, all in one place.”

“Fans will also be able to generate their own shareable ‘mixtape’ playlist on the site, which will be personalised according to how they’ve interacted with the site’s content and the eras they’ve spent the most time exploring.”

“It will also allow fans to connect to Spotify or Apple Music, with the mixtape playlists being saved to their respective accounts.”

So, we’ll see. Until tomorrow, then.
