In 2023, I had a project: Breaking the Guinness world record for "Most concerts attended in one year". During that project it was clear that finding the best concerts is one of the hardest parts for me. Sometimes the artists social media were the only source to know where and when they are supporting another artists tour. That’s why I’ve made a calendar for my concerts on my record homepage and as people were telling me, that they would use my homepage as a source for concerts around Leipzig, Berlin and Dresden I thought I could continue that project even after the record. From time to time, I might add even more concerts and cities to it, but as there is a lot of manual work going on that might take time.
If you know about more concerts or festivals and want to help me with the database, you can contact me. Any help is gladly appreciated, as it is a lot of work to maintain. Also, everyone with access to the database can benefit from a few additional functions, such as having a personal concert calendar, which can be synchronised with their smartphone. These functions might be available for the public later.
My name is Markus "Vestalis" Gubitz, I am 34 years old, based in Leipzig, Germany and I am an official Guinness World Record owner for "Most concerts attended in one year".
In 2023 I have attended a total of 476 shows of 389 different artists on 183 concerts and 5 festivals in 2 countries, 20 cities. My world record got approved on January 24th, 2024.
If you want to know all details about the record and my journey how to beat it, you can see that on my social media and also the record homepage I've set up.
As there was no good source for concerts in one place, I've started my own.
