The organisers of the ChillOut Festival, Australia’s longest running and biggest regional LGBTQ+ Pride Festival, will attempt to break the world record for the largest Human Rainbow in Daylesford, Victoria on Saturday, March 7.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current record holder is the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, which mobilised 30,365 participants wearing rainbow-coloured shirts on September 18, 2004 (pic below).

ChillOut Festival organisers hope to break this record and believe their event will be a chance to  show support for the LGBTQ+ community and will be a visual demonstration of solidarity.

They say: “We are attempting the World Record to create the largest Human Rainbow.

“We’re calling for 30,000 community members, allies, families, and supporters to come together to celebrate and show the world that we support queer country pride.

“Come and show your support for the LGBTQ+ community in this visual demonstration of solidarity.

“Together, we can show the world that Australians believe in equality and diversity.”

Tickets to the event are available by clicking here. Each ticket also comes with a t-shirt that participants can keep and an oppportunity to be part of the largest human rainbow in the world and be a Guinness Book of World Records holder.

The 2020 ChillOut Festival line-up features a host of parties, entertainment and sporting events around Daylesford, Victoria in March.
