World Busk 2014

Guinness World Record

9 June to 15 June 2014


We’ve just received their confirmation from Guinness World Record of our official world record for the Largest Busk at Multiple Venues; 871 participants in 21 venues around the world. The record attempt was one of the events in this year’s World Busk during which over 1,300 performers helped raise nearly £10,000!

 

On 11 June 2014 over 1000 buskers performing in choirs, orchestras and bands from London to Mumbai attempted to set a new Guinness World Record for the Largest Busk at Multiple Venues. To set the new world record, ten groups with a minimum of 25 buskers had to perform in unison at different venues. Musequality succeeded in getting 32 groups together across seven countries. 

 

We’d like to thank all the performers, organisers and volunteers who helped during the week. Special thanks go to our coordinators, Marianne Schofield and Daniella Gluck for their Herculean effort.
