Canada Attempts to Beat Musical Guinness World Record

What better way to celebrate Canada’s 150th than by attempting to beat a Guinness World Record?

Beginning on March 17 and organized by Kevin Ker and Epidemic Music Group, and hosted at the Earl of Whitchurch in Stouffville ON, the event will aim to capture the Longest Concert by Multiple Artists record, currently held by Las Vegas.

In addition to 16 + days of round the clock live music, each day will showcase and highlight a different Canadian charity including Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer, North Toronto Cat Rescue, Sick Kids and so many more.

The rules are strict with guidelines that include no more than 5 minutes in between acts, no more than 30 seconds between songs, the same song cannot be played more than once in a four-hour period etc.

With over 100 volunteers and approximately 400 bands and artists, this is an event that no Canadian should miss.

Born and raised in MTL, I spent most of my teens and early 20’s working in the music industry. I made the permanent move to Toronto in 2013 where I joined the team at the Canadian Independent Music Association as the Music Export Assistant. I spend my days working with and promoting incredible indie Canadian artists and companies across the world.

Music journalism and photography have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, as I jumped on board Confront Magazine a few years after it formed and ran it as the Editor-in-Chief for 7 years, right up until its recent closure.

I love to spend my spare time running to and from concerts, cheering on my hockey team (Go Habs!) and getting lost in nature whenever I can.
