The purpose of the Air Guitar World Championships is to promote world peace.
According to the competition ideology, wars will end, climate change will stop and all bad things will vanish when all the people in the world play the air guitar.
That’s why everyone is invited at the end of the competition to play the air guitar all at once to save the world.

After the past few years, I no longer take for granted the opportunity to share space
and laugh with you all. Thank you for joining us and welcoming me into the LSU community.
Are you ready to ROCK?!
Yes, this is a show about the incredibly niche, fascinating, and weird world of air guitar. Beneath its expressive, silly and over-the-top exterior is a welcoming and fiercely loyal community.
In the short time we’ve spent together, besides having fun, this play and team have taught me:
Put your full heart into your work.
Care for and celebrate the community around you.
Take a risk and trust that you can do it.
Don’t give a shit about what other people think.
Be part of something bigger than yourself.
You’ve got an inner rock god. Unleash it.
Have a great fucking time.
So, in this moment when moments of raw joy can feel few and far between, I invite you to let loose. Scream for your favorites, boo for your villains and join us in the ultimate celebration of humanity.
