As one of the Presenting Partners of the Olympic Torch Relay (OTR), Coca-Cola will mark the arrival of the Olympic flame in the UK capital, with a special finale celebration concert in Hyde Park on Thursday 26 July, ahead of the opening of the London 2012

The line-up for the event will include London-born headliner Dizzee Rascal, plus chart-toppers The Wanted, Eliza Doolittle and Rizzle Kicks. The 80,000-strong crowd will also be treated to a special performance of the Olympic Torch Relay Anthem by Mark Ronson & Katy B.

Bring all the family along to watch top live music performances and see the iconic Olympic flame light a cauldron for the very last time before it reaches the Olympic Stadium, on the evening before the London 2012 Opening Ceremony.

Coca-Cola, which has supported the OTR since the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games, has celebrated the 70-day relay with 61 evening concerts plus four Special City Celebrations including this finale in Hyde Park. The celebrations have marked the journey of the Olympic flame as it has travelled around the country and has also honoured the achievements of local Future Flames – inspirational teens selected by Coca-Cola to become Olympic torchbearers for London 2012.
