As reported by Music Radar, August 12,2018 marks a special day for all the electric guitar lovers worldwide. That day, 457 guitarists gathered in Sydney, Australia to perform legendary AC/DC‘s “Highway to Hell” and ultimately break the world record of the most electric guitar players performing in one place.
The participants were required to pay $45 participation and they received small Marshall MS-2 amps. All the funds from the event were directed to the Australian Children’s Music Foundation. The playalong was led by Australian band The Choirboys.
As the source further states, the verification for the Guinness record can take some time, up to six weeks. But knowing that previous record – set in India back in 2013 – was 368 guitarists, it’s pretty certain that the event will officially go down in the book.
