Organizers of the annual ChillOut Festival will attempt to break the world record for the largest human rainbow, QNews reports.

ChillOut, Australia’s longest-running and biggest regional LGBTQ Pride festival, will assemble the rainbow March 7, 2020, in Daylesford, Victoria.

Event organizers believe the record-breaking living rainbow will serve as "a collective symbol of solidarity and acceptance" for the LGBTQ community.

MANILA, PHILIPPINES: Some 31,000 students, faculty and alumni of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines create a "human rainbow" at the central park of the Philippine capital 18 September 2004 in Manila. The rainbow is intended to boost the image of the school and is also a bid to set a new record for world's largest human rainbow in the Guinness Book of World Records.

"We’re calling for 30,000 community members, allies, families, and supporters to come together to celebrate and show the world that we support queer country pride," says a ChillOut representative. "Come and show your support for the LGBTQI+ community in this visual demonstration of solidarity. Together, we can show the world that Australians believe in equality and diversity."

According to Guinness World Records, the current record holder is the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, which created a human rainbow in 2004 with 30,365 participants wearing rainbow-colored shirts. Can ChillOut attract 30,366?

Each ticket to ChillOut, available through Eventbrite, comes with a T-shirt.
