On Wednesday 28th August Goldierocks rocked the Ceremony alongside Excalibah & Walde, DJing centre stage in the Olympic Stadium during the 2 hour athletes parade with a specially commissioned high energy Global Music mash-up to welcome in the athletes from 164 countries around the world.
Taking place at the 85,000 capacity Olympic Stadium in East London and broadcast to a worldwide audience, the London 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony was created by artistic directors Jenny Sealey and Bradley Hemmings and provided a theatrical and emotional homecoming for the Paralympic Games. The Ceremony was overseen by the team of Executive Producers who were in charge of all four Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies, including Oscar winning film director Stephen Daldry.
Goldierocks said ”What a phenomenal experience. I’m bursting with pride to be welcoming the global paralympian athletes to Great Britain in our finest hour. We’re making history tonight and we’re doing it in the most colourful, diverse and innovative way. This ceremony is a showcase of the wealth of incredible theatrical, design and musical talent in the UK and as an ambassador of British culture is something I’m exceptionally happy to be representing.”
And we’re bursting with pride for her too. Mixes from the ceremony and a Goldierocks exclusive mix will be available from the official Goldierocks site soon, more info to follow…
