Rock the Games

Lots of sport, but also lots of music at London 2012


The London 2012 Organizing Committee has designed an innovative schedule packed-full of (often live) music events to entertain the audiences who will be following the Games. A music library of 2012 songs with five music themes (energy, primetime, extreme, heritage and world stage) has been compiled especially for the occasion. Each theme was tailored for specific sports: for example heritage for Tennis at Wimbledon or extreme for BMX. In addition, the music program “Rock the Games” features a rich calendar of live performances and five new recorded tracks from internationally renowned artists: Muse, Elton John vs. Pnau, Delphic, Chemical Brothers and Dizzee Rascal. To top off the music events, Scissor Sisters and Rizzle Kicks are just two of the artists that are set to play surprise gigs at some of the Olympic venues.
