Olympic organisers have received “loads of really positive feedback” after choosing a dance music playlist to soundtrack the Games in London.
It is being reported that the volume of music being played at the Olympic stadium in Stratford has been the subject of complaints and that loud, thumping tracks may be drawing attention away from the sporting action.
But Olympic organisers reckon they have got the volume “about right” and that the provision of entertainment such as music helps attracts a wide range of spectator, from casual neutral to die-hard enthusiast.
“In terms of the music, I think we have the level right but if you are saying that people are not liking it then, of course, we will have a look at it, but we have actually had loads of really positive feedback about the atmosphere and the music in the venue,” a spokeswoman for the London 2012 organising committee said.
New Order and Groove Armada are just two artists included on the Games’ dance music playlist, which came in to full effect last Saturday when a range of finals took place at the Olympic stadium.
