Guinness World Records™ Attempt Guidelines

How to Participate

Perks:  Fun, bragging rights, and a place in the record book!

Register today to participate in an all Canadian Guinness World Records™ attempt!

On Thursday, July 1st, 2021, be part of a Canada-wide attempt to set a brand new Guinness World Records™ title of:  “Most People Performing a Drum Roll Online Simultaneously”. Please refer to the video above for attempt guidelines.

Our goal is to have 1000+ individuals or groups participate via various channels, first-come-first-served. We’re looking for diverse dedicated drummers to partake in this challenge. Please share this exciting event with your local communities!

The Guinness World Records™ attempt will be broadcasted live across the participating Canadian cities and on social media platforms around the world. See event details of participating cities.

Practice Makes Perfect

You already are our hero by finishing that online registration form!

But as we will need to drum for at least five minutes in order to set the record, we do need rehearsals prior to the event. And we anticipate tons of fun jamming with our drummers! Please participate in at least one of the practice sessions.
