Glastonbury Festival

Up to 15,000 festival-goers are believed to have converged on the Stone Circle at Glastonbury this week to create the world’s largest human peace sign.

Organisers of the massive annual festival estimate that 15,000 punters and staff gathering at the Stone Circle, considered the spiritual centre of the festival, to make an unofficial bid to have the most people ever to form a peace symbol.

The record is held by a 2009 gathering of 5,814 people who stood together at the Ithaca Festival in New York. Because of practicalities, that record won’t be broken as so many people can’t be counted in the time period imagined.
