The 304 people chosen will join more than 1,300 official London 2012 Olympic torchbearers nominated by Coca-Cola to carry the flame as it travels around the country.

The soft drinks giant is also helping the London Organising Committee and host local authorities to organise music showcasing the up-and-coming and established acts at the 66 Evening Celebrations that will be held along the route of the Olympic Torch Relay.

The initiative builds on Coca-Cola's 'Move to the Beat' campaign which uses music to interest teenagers in the Olympics in partnership with producer Mark Ronson and dub-step vocalist Katy B.
