The Guinness World Records is dedicated to noting every achievement existing from the smallest human in the world to the most twerks done simultaneously. Here are some fun records broken by the EDM community over the past few years:

Most Glowsticks Lit Simultaneously & Longest Cheer

Steve Aoki broke 2 GWR simultaneously at his 2013 performance with Kid Cudi at the Shrine Auditorium at Los Angeles. A cheer lasting 2 minutes happened, breaking the record previously held by Ozzy Osbourne.


Largest Pillow Fight

The duo Dada Life, hosted the largest pillow fight in 2013, with 3,813 fans at the Aragon Ballroom for a unique experience. Although the record has since been broken, it was still a mad an epic moment.


Most Top 10 Hits from One Album

Calvin Harris is on the top of his game, being the highest paid DJ of 2015, and he broke a GWR in 2014 after releasing his album 18 Months, out of which 9 tracks featured in the Top 10 Hits on the UK Singles chart, a record previously held by Michael Jackson.



Most Vocal Edits in One Song

BT broke his previously set record of Most Vocal Edits in one song. In 2015, when releasing his newest live album, he remastered his 2003 single Simply Being Loved which previously had over 6,000 edits and the latest rendition now has over 10,000.


Longest Marathon Club DJ-ing

DJ Norberto Loco, blew the GWR away by DJ-ing for a solid 200 hours straight in 2015. It has made him the world’s longest performing DJ ever.
