WHAT IS GUITAR GODS?
Guitar Gods Festival is the ultimate rock party - with cold drinks, tropical beaches, and a star-studded lineup filled to the brim with rock legends, what more could you want? Set in the North Beach Bandshell - an open-air amphitheater surrounded by the palm trees and golden sands of Miami Beach - Guitar Gods Festival is a true celebration of rock guitar. The centerpiece of the Guitar Gods Festival is the online competition, where budding artists will duke it out to determine the next Guitar God. The contest is open to all acoustic and electric guitar players of any age, whether they be soloists, duos, or full bands - anything goes as long as there's a guitarist! The submissions will be voted on by fans and all-star panel of judges, with eight performers being selected to perform at the event on February 19th, and one lucky performer winning an all-expenses paid cabin and a performance slot on the Axes & Anchors Cruise!
