About Markus

"At least it is a cool record, not something like licked the most lollipops." - Gab, a close friend

My name is Markus Gubitz, I am 33 years old, based in Leipzig, Germany, work as an Agile Coach in a software development company and I am going to be a Guinness World Record owner by the end of 2023.

In 2022 I have seen 213 live shows of 188 unique artists, which includes supporting acts and festival shows. Many friends joked around, that I am going for the world record and we laughed about it. Yet we are here and I officially registered myself as attempt for "Most concerts attended in one year". Did I think about it first? No. Am I a little crazy? Probably a lot. Am I going to break it? Absolutely!

The Record

Is there are current record? Yes there is.

The current Guinness World Record for "Most concerts attended in one year" was achieved by Sudan Infante from West Palm Beach, USA in 2018*. As there is already a record, I did not have any chance to change the conditions of the record and had to stick with the regulations of the current record. Based on the given regulations Sudan Infante attended 65 concerts.

Also Josh Beck did attend 82 concerts in 2022, verification from Guinness World Records is pending, but that is actually the number I want to beat, as his record is counting for me.
 

What about "Most bands seen live in one year"?

There is currently no record for this and I have applied for creating this record with a target number of 150 artists. Currently there is no confirmation of the Guinness World Record committee, so I do need to wait for their approval before I can start collecting bands. It is not possible to achieve a Guinness World Record for something you have achieved in the past.

Do you post updates on the record somewhere?

You should check out my social media channels, as I do post frequently on Instagram about the record and some other stuff. I am also trying to build up an YouTube and tiktok channel for that. If I do have the time I might also do some livestreaming on twitch.

Festivals do not count - why do you list them here?

Currently there is no record for "Most Bands seen live in one year" and I am trying to achieve this one in 2023 as well, also I think it is a nice statistics. See the section above for details.

The Rules

There are many rules to follow in order to break an official Guinness World Record. Here is an overview about the most relevant ones for this record:. Please keep in mind, that these are just a shortened overview.

  • This record is to be measured by the total number of different concert events attended.
  • For the purposes of this record, a 'concert' is a live musical performance for a paying audience.
  • Each concert must be given before an audience in a recognised venue, with an audience capacity of at least 200 persons.
  • Festivals do not count. Each venue / concert has to be completely separate.
  • All concerts must be advertised and should be accessible to members of the public and press.
  • The attendance of the individual attempting the record at each concert must be for at least one complete set from one of the bands performing.
  • A logbook must be kept with details of each concert attended, including date, venue and artists performing.
  • No artist may feature in more than 5% of the concerts attended.
  • The participant must source their own entry for each concert. Complementary tickets (i.e. for reviewers, venue staff, tour support, etc) will not be eligible.
  • The event is continuous. The clock does not stop. One year means a complete 365 day cycle including rest breaks.

The following evidence must be provided:
  • Two independent witness statements from each concert confirming that the rules above have been adhered.
  • Photographic evidence of your attempt taking place capturing the details provided by the independent witnesses.
  • Video evidence of the record attempt. Multiple short clips from start to finish are sufficient.
  • A ticket stub with the claim for each concert attended.
