Guinness World Record set for the world's biggest disco ball
Could this be the world’s biggest mirrorball? The organisers of Bestival on the Isle of Wight certainly hope so. Nile Rodgers of disco legends Chic laid down the challenge to break the record for the largest mirror ball ever built, and a representative of Guinness World Records has been called in to assess the new attempt. But size is only part of the record – the disco ball has to rotate in the air for 5 mins at a music event where people dance. Slowly it is hoisted 12 metres in the air, and a team of 6 wranglers start it spinning.
