This weekend was Camp Bestival Dorset, and among the usual shenanigans was an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for largest disco dance… which apparently is a thing. So, a dancefloor was built, a glitter ball was hoisted, and Sophie Ellis-Bextor broke into some singing…

…and with an official total of 598 dancers, the world record was broken. Camp Bestival and Sophie now hold the world record:

Sophie told The Sun: “From my own Kitchen Disco to a fully-fledged all-sequin disco extravaganza in the glorious grounds of Lulworth Castle, I am so thrilled to have played a sparkling part in helping Camp Bestival achieve the official Guinness World Records title for the Largest Disco Dance. Congratulations to all you fabulous disco Kings and Queens!”

The Michael Eavis of Bestival, Rob da Bank, noted “It was amazing to see families and people of all ages come together and show off their best disco moves under the dazzling glitter ball. As well as having a huge amount of fun, we’re incredibly proud that the attempt has raised funds for the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust. Huge congratulations to all dancers involved!”
