It’s official! The Gold Coast now holds the World Record for the most people making sand angels simultaneously on a beach.

The City of Gold Coast received official notification this week that the November attempt - where 1624 angels gathered at Kurrawa Beach - was successful.

Mayor Tom Tate said almost $30,000 was raised on the day to support farmers through charity Drought Angels.

"This was a show of Gold Coast community spirit at its very best,” Mayor Tate said.

“It was a truly wonderful morning and I can’t wait until we are able to do another event like this one sometime in the future, once the pandemic is behind us.”

Groundwater Music Festival Director Mark Duckworth said the festival team couldn't be happier to be a part of this world record.

“The beach and the Gold Coast people are such a big part of our festival and we could not be prouder of the result."

Under the banner of We are Gold Coast, the City of Gold Coast joined forces with Groundwater Music Festival to deliver the community event.
