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 – the culmination of the world-wide season of air guitar gathers only the best to the battle in Oulu, already 25 years. The World final offers performances from the world’s best air guitarists and a magnificent show for old and new friends of air guitar. The Air Guitar World Championships also offers a cheerful side programme in addition to the contest events.

The next Air Guitar World Championship competition takes place in August 2022. The official Air Guitar World Championships network includes 14 countries from almost all continents.

In 25 years, 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 Oulu, when national champions and black horses arrive to compete for the world championship.

The World Championship will be decided in a free of charge and age-limitless final spectacle. In the Black Horses Qualifier the night before, the prize is an instant place in the World Championship final. In addition, the festival offers air guitar-themed local tourism for international tourists.

The Air Guitar World Championships are organized by Airnest Productions Oy.
