Thousands of Glastonbury festival goers are expected to participate in an attempt to set a new world record for kissing at this yearâ€™s festival.
Festival organiserâ€™s are looking for 30,000 people to take part in â€˜The Big Kissâ€™ which has been devised by Match.com and Glastonbury institution Lost Vagueness.
The record attempt â€“ which will take place at 1.30am on the Sunday (June 24th) of the festival â€“ will be sound tracked by 80s pop group Madness who will be playing on the main Lost Vagueness stage as â€˜The Big Kissâ€™ takes place.
Speaking about the record attempt, Jason Stockwood from Match.com. said: â€œWeâ€™re expecting to trounce the current World Record of 6,400 couples, which was set in Hungary this year, by getting all 30,000 people to kiss the person next to them. Itâ€™s a big feat but weâ€™re expecting festival goers to be high on the weekendâ€™s proceedings and up for showing their love for life by kissing the person next to them.â€
He added: â€œWeâ€™re all about making love happen and weâ€™re hoping that a few new relationships will be formed as a result of our World Record attempt.â€
The Glastonbury Festival takes place from June 22nd -24th and will be headlined by the Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and The Who.
