The Pandemonium Drummers constitute the largest group of volunteer performers who will provide a short but dazzling show just before the kick-off of the 2013 final of Europe's most prestigious football club competition.
After five months of preparation and a number of rehearsals, the Pandemonium Drummers will perform together with the Beefeaters Drumline, additional volunteer performers from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as other performers.
This Opening Ceremony for the UEFA Champions League final will provide an interesting storyline that will culminate in the entrance of the two competing teams.
We cannot reveal any details about the performance, but it will be quite different to the Industrial Revolution sequence we became famous for - be surprised!
Switch on your TV at 7.30pm BST to watch us perform just before the kick-off at 7.45pm on 25 May 2013!
The Pandemonium Drummers were originally put together by London 2012 Ceremonies for the Pandemonium segment of Danny Boyle's spectacular Olympic Opening Ceremony. Following the Ceremony, the volunteer drummers kept on performing at a variety of events.
Based on their extensive training, they performed at other Opening Ceremonies, including the UEFA Champions League Final 2013, the FA Cup Final 2014, and the Heineken Cup Final 2014, and at a variety of large and small festivals as well as sports and community events. The Pandemonium Drummers are a returning act in London's major parades, including the London New Years' Day Parade, St Patrick's Day Parade, and the Lord Mayor's Show, and they coined Cheer Drumming, supporting runners at major sports events across the capital and beyond. The Pandemonium Drummers have supported the Special Olympics, the Teenage Cancer Trust, and a wide range of other charities.
The Pandemonium Drummers are a constituted association with charitable aims, and are working on a non-profit basis as volunteers.
