For the third straight year, the No Surrender Festival has set a record for the most people performing a Bruce Springsteen song together.
In 2017, 1,004 people performed The Boss’ “No Surrender” together at the festival, which takes place in Vilanova de Bellpuig, Spain. Last year, at the second annual edition of the fest, 1,083 sang and played a different Springsteen anthem, “Badlands.”
And this year, with trombonists and trumpeters welcomed for the first time (in addition to singers, guitarists, bassists, drummer, keyboardists and saxophonists), 1,240 performed “Glory Days.”
You can watch videos from all three years, below.
The festival took place on June 28-29, and was attended by more than 5,000 people, according to a report on vilaweb.cat.
