AC/DC WORLD RECORD 2018
This afternoon (Sunday the 14th of August 2018) 457 people rocked up to Chatswood to play “Highway to Hell” and break the Guinness world record for the most people playing the same song at the same time on electric guitars. This broke the previous record attempt for the largest electric guitar ensemble. The previous record was 368 people and was set in India in 2013.
The guitars were plugged into mini-Marshall amps that sat on guitarist belts to achieve the best sound possible. The amps were included in a $45 registration fee and all proceeds raised went to Australian Children's Music Foundation.
The Choirboys were on stage leading the rendition of “Highway to Hell” and it was a great experience to see this record was smashed and will be placed in the Guinness book of records.
Official Guinness verification of the new Sydney record could take up to six weeks.
