PHAGWARA, Punjab: Guinness World Record for the largest Bhangra performance was established at Lovely Professional University (LPU), Phagwara where 4411 national and international LPU students and others from 29 states of India and different countries had gathered to make World Record on Punjab Day, according to varsity release.
Revealing incredible enthusiasm, the participants performed continuously  on seven steps of Bhangra, attired in traditional Punjabi dresses.

Performance was on the beats of Dhols, rhythms of Bansuri, Chimta including 13 other Punjabi folk dance musical instruments along with folk-lore singing.
