On Sunday, 457 musicians gathered at the Sydney Guitar Festival in Australia to perform the AC/DC classic "Highway to Hell" in an attempt to break the record for most people playing the same song on the electric guitar at once.
Participants used small battery-powered amps while Australian band The Choirboys performed onstage. “They were tiny amps but they got the sound happening,” festival spokeswoman Tatiana Marchant told the Australian Associated Press. “It was such a great atmosphere.”
The previous record was 368 guitarists set in India in 2013. It could take Guinness upward six weeks to verify the Sydney record.
