Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony 2014: Date, Start Time, Line up, Venue, TV Coverage, Live Stream

The Commonwealth Games 2014 is almost over and the Closing Ceremony will wrap things up on Sunday, August 3. The ceremony will take place at night after a day of events.

Hampden Park, Scotland’s National Stadium, will be the host of the Closing Ceremony.

The closing ceremony will start at 9 p.m. GMT and be broadcast live on BBC in the United Kingdom, Ten Sports in Australia, Prime and Sky Sport in New Zealand, CBC in Canada, Ten Sports in India, and CBS Sports Network in the United States. See a list of broadcasters and live stream providers for every country below.

Kylie Minogue is slated to perform at the Closing Ceremony, as well as Lulu, who performed at the Opening Ceremony. Deacon Blue and Dougie Maclean are slated to perform as well.

Since the 2018 Commonwealth Games will be held in Australia–Minogue’s home country–the lineup was chosen to reflect the transfer.

“We are holding the party at Hampden, but it is really like we’ve inviting the world into our front room,” creative director David Zolkwer told the Independent.

“In many ways, I think the last 11 days of sport was the actual party. This is the bit where someone says ‘we don’t want this to end, let’s all go back to our house and carry on.'”

He said that the national theme will continue, although it hasn’t been influenced by the upcoming independence referendum.

Organizers say that the ceremony will use more than 160 tons of staging, 3,000 props, and 454 flags.

Around one billion people are expected to tune in.

The ceremony will be broadcast on the following stations and live stream providers around the world:
