Usually when we think of EDM festivals, breaking Guinness World Records isn't the first thing that comes to mind. However, a fest held over the weekend in San Bernardino won the glorious achievement of having the Most People Dressed as Fruit.

There were 629 people in banana costumes at The Voyage, a one-day event held at San Manuel Amphitheatre on Saturday. The head honchos behind the fest, Swedish DJ duo Dada Life, asked their guests to don on their bright yellow outfits to break the Guinness World Record, calling it the "first-ever Bananageddon." Last year, Germany was the record-holder for having the Most People Dressed as Fruit. They had 404 people dressed as grapes.

The Bananageddon was also planned to bring awareness to the Tropical Race 4 disease that is ravaging banana plants in Asia and in Africa.

"We use bananas for everything, seriously," Olle Corneer of Dada Life said in a statement. "They’re on our rider, our fans come to gigs dressed as them, they’re even in our logo. Imagine if we can’t get hold of them any more, it’s a crazy thought."

This isn't the first time Dada Life has broken a Guinness World Record. In 2013, they held the title for Largest Pillow Fight at a concert in Chicago's Aragon Ballroom.
