  • Who: University of California, Irvine

  • What: Largest pillow fight

  • Where: United States

The largest pillow fight consists of 4,200 participants and was achieved by the University of California, Irvine (USA) in Irvine, California, USA, on 30 September 2014.

As a UC Irvine Welcome Week tradition, the Associated Students of UCI organized the largest pillow fight record attempt to rally students together before school starts. They played the Dada Life single "Born to Rage" during the record attempt. In addition, UCI’s Antrepreneur Center created a “pillow trade” competition in which students can exchange their world record pillows for new items, with the hope of trading their way up to pay for college.
