WATCH more than 1,000 people perform Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Badlands’ together

Badlands at No Surrender Festival

More than 1,000 people performed ‘Badlands’ together at the No Surrender festival in Spain, this summer.

The No Surrender Festival beat its own record, this summer, of the most people performing a Bruce Springsteen song together.

Last summer, 1,004 people performed The Boss’ “No Surrender” together at the festival, which takes place in Vilanova de Bellpuig, Spain. This June, at the second annual edition of the festival, 1,083 reportedly sang and played on a different Springsteen anthem, “Badlands.” You can watch both videos, below.

The festival took place on June 29 and 30, though the video below was just posted last week. The festival was attended by about 5,000 people, according to a report on, and featured a variety of European Springsteen cover acts.

Great performance to the first Springsteen song I ever heard in a hot summer’s day in 1979 as it’s the first song on the Darkness album. Fabulous. Keeping doing these guys.
