Air Guitar World Championships is competed on August 24th. The event is back on its spot on Rotuaari stage, right in the middle of the city of Oulu, Finland. On the stage climb up the national winners from the official network, the “Dark Horses” from previous day’s qualification and last year’s winner Matt “Airistotle” Burns from USA.

Entry for Dark Horses’ Qualifications held on 23rd of August is open at the event’s website. The jury chooses the best ones from candidates from all over the world to attend the next day’s World Final. Interest for the qualification has been extensive, so it is recommended to apply right away.  

The official international Air Guitar World Championships network has covered many years Japan, Canada, Germany and USA. This year the network has expanded to Australia, Denmark and Great Britain, of which the last one hosted its national championship in Download, one of the biggest festivals in Europe. 

Accreditation is also opened. Media representatives are asked to visit the event’s website and fill in the form by August 10th.

Just before the World Final there will be held a symposium for Climate Change and World Peace – this first year only in Finnish but in the coming years also in English.
