Imagine being in the presence of over 700,000 people. That thought is scary to me but I'm not diamond selling artiste Shaggy, who after 25 years in the music business still rock huge crowds. His biggest to date is over 700,000 in attendance at Woodstock Festival in Poland. Calling it a "career highlight," Shaggy had his audience singing in unison, word for word, the lyrics to his popular 'I Need Your Love' single and admitted via an instagram post that the crowd was, probably the most people I've ever played in front of. 

Woodstock Festival Poland is a huge free summer music festival held the beginning of August in Kostrzyn nad Odra, Poland.  The Festival is organized by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation to acknowledge all volunteers and supporters who take part in the annual Grand Finale fundraiser in January. The Festival in Poland has received International Music Industry Award at the MUSEXPO 2015 in Los Angeles for the Best Festival Promoter.
