London 2012: Concert to mark Olympic flame visit

A concert for 20,000 people is being planned in Salisbury to tie in with the Olympic torch passing through the city in July 2012.

Wiltshire Council is organising the event at Hudson's Field which will use a stage from the Glastonbury Festival.

The authority said local acts will feature during the day and evening of 11 July before a "nationally-known" performer headlines the event later.

After the torch visits Salisbury it will travel to Weymouth and Portland.

The Olympic flame is set to arrive in the UK from Greece on 18 May 2012.

It will leave Land's End, Cornwall, the following morning before travelling 8,000 miles (12,874 km) around the UK.
