It was good this year that after the final being held in London last year, the final of the Official UK Air Guitar Championships moved back to Concorde 2 in Brighton. I attended last Friday (the 9th) for the 3rd year running.

Its a good fun event lasting for about 3 hours where a mixture of people get up on stage and “strum as though their lives depend on it”. It starts off with heats where newcomers must prove themselves and earn their place in the second round.

The winners of each heat are chosen by the audience – those getting the loudest cheer win!

In round 2, the previous champion along with the other champions from the UK joined in having to perform within “the cage”

The numbers are gradually reduced down for a 3 way final which this year featured the 2010 champ “Eddie Six Strings”, the Welsh champ “Air Venging Angel” and the eventual winner “Smoky Van Porno”
