The Guinness World Record for the largest number of drummers playing kits at once was broken on July 15 during the Stick It To MS 2012 fundraiser. The massive percussion ensemble, totalling 798 drummers from the UK, Europe, and the U.S., assembled at the Event City exhibition hall in Manchester, England, to play together for five minutes, smashing the previous record of 582 drummers, not coincidentally set by Stick It To MS in 2009.
Event sponsor Natal Drums was instrumental in organizing the event, which is expected to raise in excess of £100,000 for The Multiple Sclerosis Society (£75,000 has already been raised).
