Some quick info about the ceremony:

Cast of 15,000 volunteers
– 23,000 costumes
– 12 hours of music
– 60 musicians
– 15,000 sq m of staging
– 13,000 propos
– One million watt PA system with 500 speakers (!)

The cost for all this was estimated to £81m .. but the estimated value of airtime is £5bn!
The ceremony had over four bilion viewers.

Let’s hope it’s safe to say that electronic music is here to stay for good! :)
