Thousands of Glastonbury festival goers are expected to participate in an attempt to set a new world record for kissing at this year’s festival.

Festival organiser’s are looking for 30,000 people to take part in ‘The Big Kiss’ which has been devised by Match.com and Glastonbury institution Lost Vagueness.

The record attempt – which will take place at 1.30am on the Sunday (June 24th) of the festival – will be sound tracked by 80s pop group Madness who will be playing on the main Lost Vagueness stage as ‘The Big Kiss’ takes place.

Speaking about the record attempt, Jason Stockwood from Match.com. said: “We’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. It’s a big feat but we’re expecting festival goers to be high on the weekend’s proceedings and up for showing their love for life by kissing the person next to them.”

He added: “We’re all about making love happen and we’re hoping that a few new relationships will be formed as a result of our World Record attempt.”

The Glastonbury Festival takes place from June 22nd -24th and will be headlined by the Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and The Who.
