Nearly 900 people at a music festival in Britain set a new world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Superman.

With the help of the Escapade costume company, 867 people suited up as Superman and broke the previous record of 566 people set by Sears Holdings Corporation in Chicago on June 5, according to the BBC.

Proceeds from the Superman stunt went to Help For Heroes, a British charity for injured servicemen and their families, the Daily Mail reported.

Kendal Calling, an independent music festival launched in 2006, was held over three days in Britain's Lake District.

"We have had some moments to remember for a lifetime at the festival this weekend and seeing hundreds of supermen from three-years-old to 70 was simply amazing," festival director Ben Robinson said.
