Brian May Guitar Up For Grabs At The World Air Guitar Championships
Is this cool or dumb or I’m just cynical?
Swinging, jumping and running all over the stage to the tunes of metal and hard rock music, air guitarists from all over the world will vie for the handmade Flying Finn electric guitar at the 12th Air Guitar World Championships (AGWC) on September 7 in Oulu, Finland.
In an e-mail interview, Oli Rantala, Executive Director, Oulu Music Video Festival and Air Guitar World Championships, said: “Since we don’t have any prize money for the winners our prizes are real guitars that he or she wins as trophies. Apart from that the champion gets an invitation to perform at major events in the music industry such as MIDEM 2008 in Cannes, France.” Rantala added: “This year the winner will be selected from 20 finalists representing 17 official network countries, who will participate in the two-day event.”
