The UK Air Guitar championships are hoping to pay for their rocking this year with a crowdfunding campaign. It is the tenth year of the championships.
The finals, held every year in London, see hopefuls show off their skills on their (admittedly invisible) axes. It is the first campaign of it’s kind to be expensed by a crowd funded campaign.
Danny "The Midnight Moses" Robertson, “Airtistic” Director for Air Guitar UK joined London Live to discuss the campaign.
Last year, the first ever female UK air guitar champion was named. The axe woman, known as A Boy Named Sue, claimed her crown at Tufnell Park’s Junction Road.
Sue, real name Charlotte Clarke, said at the time: “It feels absolutely amazing to win because ever since I started I’ve wanted to be the first female champion.
“A lot of people would call me a radical feminist, not that I burn stuff or anything, but I firmly believe in equal opportunities and making sure women get a fair deal, so to realise that ambition happen is huge.
“I’ve been entering since the second year and always placed well, but last year I didn’t do so well and it gave me a kick up the back side.
“This year I tried to be more raw, more passionate, and it paid off.
“It’s so nice to do it after all these years.”
