Kygo to Close Rio Games

17 Aug 2016

The Norwegian DJ will also launch the Olympic Channel

After two weeks, the Olympic Games are coming to an end this week, and the Electronic Dance Music star Kygo will perform his latest single Carry Me with Julia Michaels at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

The gig will also launch the new Olympic Channel, which is dedicated to bringing fans games-related content for the next couple of months!

The DJ is a big sports fan and feels honoured to close the event.

“The opportunity to be a part of the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio is a huge milestone in my career and it will be the biggest performance in my life…To be able to combine this with my music and help launch something like the Olympic Channel is a dream come true” said Kygo.

We wish we could go down to Rio to party alongside all the athletes! Plus we could totally spy on the blossoming Simone Biles and Zac Efron romance!
