Official Air Guitar UK Championships

 

IT'S AIRMAGEDDON - THE RESULTS ARE IN!

Boy Named Sue is the 2014 Air Guitar UK Champion!

The annual Air Guitar UK Championships, the battle for the coveted title of greatest air guitarist in the country, came to a thunderously sweaty, sweary, and raucous conclusion on Saturday July 19th, with air guitarist Boy Named Sue taking the crown!

The competition, now in it's ninth glorious year, is the one-and-only officially recognised UK heat of the Air Guitar World Championships, and our Champion will journey to Finland to fight for international glory and the chance to reign supreme as the greatest air guitarist on Planet Earth!
