SO WHAT'S AIR GUITAR ALL ABOUT?
Air Guitar LA is responsible for finding the best air guitarist in Los Angeles. We host yearly competitions as part of the US Air Guitar Championships, which in turn is part of the Air Guitar World Championships.
The Air Guitar World Championships began in Oulu, Finland in 1996 as part of a music video festival. The purpose of the Air Guitar World Championships is to promote world peace, because if everyone was holding an air guitar, they couldn't be holding a gun. In 2003, the US discovered this most excellent event and realized that we should be dominating it, and so the US Air Guitar Championships was born (you can watch a documentary all about that first year - Air Guitar Nation).
12 years later USAG is bigger and stronger than ever. 2015 saw 24 local qualifying competitions in cities ranging from New York to Des Moines, 4 Conference Semifinals, and the National Championship in Portland. At the 2015 Air Guitar World Championships, we took 2nd, 3rd, 8th and 9th place. The quality of competitors gets better every year, and it's our job to find the next possible world champ here in the city where rock lives, home of the Sunset Strip...Los Angeles!
