Thanks Jimi Festival

Every May Day the good folks of Wrocław, Poland, hold their Thanks Jimi Festival. The highlight is the public performance of Jimi's classic Hey Joe.

On 1st May, 2006, 1,572 guitarists gathered to play the classic song to break a Guinness World Record.

On 1st May, 2007, there were 1,881 guitarists and on 1st May, 2008, 1,951.

On 1st May 2009, an amazing 6216 guitarists joined in.

Here is the official video for 2006.

PS probably the most atmospheric lines of any modern song are these from Hey Joe:

I'm going down to shoot my old lady
You know, I've caught her messin' around with another man
Huh, and that ain't too cool.
