The Greatest Party on Earth

In 1971, the Shah of Iran, the self-proclaimed “King of Kings”, celebrated 2,500 years of the Persian monarchy by throwing the greatest party in history. Money was no object; an international airport and 80km of highway were built to reach the lavish desert venue created at the ancient ruins of Persepolis. Everything - except the caviar - was flown in from France. The aim was to earn Iran a place among the world’s top nations. Instead, the party left the country reeling, never to recover.
