Surrender to your inner rock god and maybe, just maybe, become the next Canadian Air Guitar Champion.
After a 6 year hiatus, Air Guitar Canada is back in Toronto. On July 10th, the Toronto Qualifier will send the Top 5 Toronto Air Guitarists to the Canadian Air Guitar Championships. For who don't know, for the past 19 years in Oulu, Finland (the northern capital), Air Guitarists from around the world meet to compete in the AIR GUITAR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS. Performers create 1-minute acts that defy reality and melt the crowd’s faces. These air guitar heroes are judged using the figure skating scoring system of 4.0 to 6.0 for originality, stage charisma, technical merit, ability to be taken over by the music, artistic impression, and of course, ‘airness’. Register to compete and win a trip to Finland to represent Canada as the 2014 Canadian Air Guitar Champion.
