On Saturday 23 July, 2pm, the main stage will see potential record breakers learn a fun and easy Bollywood routine to perform in front of the watchful eyes of an official Guinness World Records adjudicator.

Leading the record attempt will be British Asian music sensation, Navin Kundra, whose single, ‘Mehbooba,’ will provide the soundtrack for the dance which has been created by Manchester-based choreographer Ria Meera Munshi.

The current record was set in Mumbai and we’re calling on Manchester’s Rubicon fans to rise to the challenge and help us break it.”
