Dark Horses Qualifying Round
Air Guitar World Championships is more than just one night’s grand finale.
The season starts in the wintertime with National Competitions around the world. The National Champions of the constantly expanding AGWC-network travel to Oulu in August to strive for the World Championship.
One can make their way to the intense AGWC Finals through National Championships or the Dark Horses Qualifying Round. This sweaty, tight struggle will take place in Oulu the night before the finals.
