What is the World Guitar Record? The annual guitar festival is most of all an occasion for collective play, meetings and exchange of experience, and during this event, an attempt to break the Guinness record is made.

Go looking for dwarves with guitars and play Hey Joe with Leszek Cichoński. The World Guitar Record invites you to join the warm-up on 1 May!

This year the World Guitar Record will take place on 19 June at the Pergola in Wrocław; nevertheless, to celebrate the annual May Day festivities, we have decided to hold a warm-up. On 30 April, dwarves in Wrocław will be given guitars, and on 1 May Leszek Cichoński will give an online concert accompanied by workshops on how to play some top guitar hits. The event will be broadcast on Facebook.


The World Guitar Record has a new date – we meet on 19 June at the Pergola in Wrocław and online!
