Speaking about buskers, we unfairly ignore orchestras and large-scale events. Today, we are going to repair injustice. Here are ten projects where the total amount of decibels can blow away a small town.
Seven Nation Army / Rockin’1000
Once a year, a thousand of musicians from all over the world get together to play their favourite songs. And it sounds absolutely incredible!
I Was Made For Lovin’ You / Rocknmob Moscow
It is somewhat a lower-profile (only 270 musicians) but not less spectacular yearly flashmob of the Moscow rock musicians.
Thunderstruck / Orquestra de Baterias
The drum orchestra from Florianópolis (Brazil). In a nutshell, 482 percussionists come together in one venue to make some noise.
Zombie / Choir! Choir! Choir!
A popular project Choir! Choir! Choir! comprises a guitar-player and sound director who are roaming across the USA. They also involve several hundreds of volunteers who get together to enjoy each others’ voices.
I Want It That Way / Pub Choir
Gathering 1,500 people in a pub but not to enjoy their lager but to choir sing? Easy! If you happen to be in Australia, you’re invited.
Hey Hey / MEUTE
The Berlin techno-orchestra doesn’t engage as many people as other projects, but they have enough drive to cover dozens of larger projects.
Scottish Clanadonia band is known in almost the entire Europe. The humble composition of this band is more than outweighed by their energetics.
The Columbian cultural association AAINJEROS makes headlines by their events. Like the one where they brought 150 drummers together.
I Believe in Anarchy / Estonia Punk Festival
National choir, orchestra, a dozen of thousands of punks – it can’t get any louder.
Enter Sandman / CityRocks
Or it can – and 500 Hungarian Metallica fans try to prove it.
