The "Chico Breaks the Record" concert is still going strong, but organizers and performers reached a significant milestone Friday, they have now unofficially hosted the world's longest concert.

The concert, which began April 1, is not officially the longest because a PG&E power outage last week shut down the time keeping clock, and camera documenting the effort.

During the power outage, spectators documented the concert with cell phone video, and it is possible Guinness will give them credit, however if they don't, the Tacklebox is still in line to officially break the record.

The old record is 15 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes, and if the concert continues through May 1, as organizers originally planned, the Tacklebox will have officially break the Guinness World Record for the longest-running multi-artist concert.
