The Londoner's Guide to London
Head to the Olympic festival at Hyde Park for live screenings of the sports action as well as on site music and world class performances.
BT London Live
One of three BT London Live festival sites alongside Victoria Park and Trafalgar Square, the Olympic festival at Hyde Park is your chance to take part in the once in a generation celebrations and sporting atmosphere associated with the London 2012 Olympic Games. With giant outdoor screens showing action from inside the Olympic stadium and other sites, you can join the crowds in cheering on all the athletes competing for glory, even if you haven't got tickets to attend the games live.
Hyde Park shines
The famous Hyde Park is at the centre of much of the action for the London 2012 Olympic Games, as it is the venue hosting the triathlon and marathon swimming events. In addition to the live sports contests there's also the Olympic festival at Hyde Park, which will be the largest BT London Live site established for members of the public to gather.
As well as giving you the chance to watch the Olympics unfold on the large screens, the Olympic festival at Hyde Park also includes a number of live performances and on-site special events. The programme of entertainment includes music concerts, cultural performances and exhibitions that showcase the best of London and UK talent.
Free and ticketed events
There's no charge for attending a screening of the sporting action at the festival, and many of the live events and performances will also be free. In addition to all the free and open to all events, a selection of special events will require tickets, including the two special Celebration Concerts that coincide with the Olympic opening and closing ceremonies on 27th July and 12th August.
Headlining the Olympic Games closing ceremony celebration concert in Hyde Park will be iconic Britpop band Blur, winners of the Outstanding Contribution Award at this year's Brit Awards. This will be Blur's only major live performance in 2012, and joining them on stage for the massive London Live open air concert will be The Specials and New Order.
