Tens of thousands of people descended on U.S. Bank Stadium Friday for a Christian music concert and a world record pillow fight attempt.

The Pulse Twin Cities event saw 50,000 MyPillows handed out to those in attendance, who proceeded to batter each other with them during the record attempt.

But the event was about more than just pillow fights – there were performances by Grammy Award winning artist Lecrae, with Hillsong Young & Free, Tye Tribbett and dance crew the Jabbawockeez also on the bill.
