Germans set world busking record

Berlin - A trio of German musicians set a new world record on Thursday for busking, by performing for 24 hours at the Popkomm music industry trade fair in Berlin.

"I am totally exhausted, but completely happy that this unique concert was a success," said Samuel Harfst after completing the feat, recognised by the Guinness Book of Records, with band members David Harfst and Dirk Menger.

The trio was only allowed a five-minute break per hour and no more than a 30-second breather between songs. And no song could be played more often than once every four hours.

The Popkomm, at the historic Tempelhof airport, the now-defunct hub of the 1948-1949 Berlin Airlift, runs until Friday.
