The Organizers will have the privilege to work with country's most internationally successful musicians and industry's top stars. The London Symphony Orchestra has been prearranged to record the soundtracks used for the closing ceremony. The march of the athletes will also take place as the flag bearers of the each participating delegation will enter the Stadium in a single line, followed closely by the athletes. All athletes march together and not by nationality, since it's a tradition and a way of bringing all the world athletes together as 'One Nation.
The flag of Greece (the birthplace of the Olympic Games), the flag of the Host Nation (UK), and the flag of the Next Host Country (Brazil) will be hoisted on flagpoles one at a time, while their national anthems are played. The Mayor of the Host City will give back the flag to the President of the International Olympic Committee and then the President will present this flag to the Mayor of the next Host City, before declaring the Games closed. The Olympic Flame is then extinguished which is quite a touching and moving moment for everyone involved in the Olympic Games.
