Guitars On The Beach 2
6 September sees the return of the Guitars On The Beach world-record bid in Lyme Regis, a repeat of the 2013 event which saw 2,267 guitarists of all stripes gather together on the town’s beach to play Buddy Holly’s Rave On, setting a record as Britain’s Biggest Band in the process. This year, there will be a repeat performance of Rave On, and special guest Ian Gillen will lead the assembled six-stringers in a mass rendition of Smoke On The Water. Status Quo’s Rocking All Over The World completes the set.
The organisers of the Fendersponsored event hope to surpass the world record for the greatest number of guitarists playing one song together – a record held since 2009 by a Polish event, which amassed 6,546 players. The Lyme Regis event will also have 20 live bands on the beach – to take part, see www.guitarsonthebeach.co.uk, where you can sign up for free.
