Air Guitar World Championships
Incredible performances, international love and big emotions – welcome to the airiest competition in the world!
The Air Guitar World Championships is a celebration of love and peace. Since 1996, the semi absurd performance art has grown into a favourite of international audiences and media, spreading its message around the world.
The year of air guitar culminates in August in Oulu, where national champions and black horses arrive to compete for the world championship title. The official Air Guitar World Championships network includes over 10 countries from almost all continents.
The AGWC Finals offers performances from the world’s best air guitarists and a magnificent show for old and new friends of air guitar. In the Black Horses Qualifying Round the night before, the prize is an instant place to the world finals. In addition to the contest events, Air Guitar World Championships offer air guitar-themed events for tourists.
The next Air Guitar World Championship competition takes place 23–25 August 2023. The Air Guitar World Championships are organized by Airnest Productions Oy.
