UK Air Guitar Championships

This year and for the first time in the history of the Air Guitar World  Championships, the UK heats took place on the hallowed turf of Donington Park and the epicentre of Rock at Download Festival.

Download Festival fans were invited exclusively to enter into this internationally recognised competition and gain the chance of becoming the UK’s ultimate 2018 Air Guitar hero

Circus of Horrors Undead Ringmaster and Rock Legend himself DR HAZE hosted the competition, which saw contestants from across the globe from Wigan to Brazil compete with their best flying kicks, sick solos and scissor jumpers.

In a gripping final on the Saturday night Sven Spandex was crowned the winner! Second place went to the equally awesome  W!ld Th!ng’ and third place went to the mighty F**k Nugget. Sven Spandex will be jetting off to Finland in August to compete in the Air Guitar World Championships!
