We showcase the work of top artists from all over UK, with international guests from the worlds of airbrushing, pinstriping & lowbrow art. You will find airbrush and pinstriping supplies. you can try your hand at pinstriping or lettering in the panel jam area  .

You will be blown away by the art being produced at the show and find the best artists to commission for your next project. You can also get your own stripes on by selecting one of our pinstripers to stripe you at the show.

We have the best selection of Rock n Roll , Rockabilly clothing and accessories, featuring everything from Tiki to Steam Punk. Jukeboxes to American Diner furniture. Taxidermy to Tattoos.   Live rocking bands on stage throughout the weekend and late into Saturday night.

The UK Body Paint League will be astounding the eye and also performing on the main stage

With burlesque performances, hot rods and kustom and classic vehicles   There is SO much to see. We also have a Sunday show and shine, with trophies galore.

So if you want something a little different, just love the retro vibe we have, come and join us at Kustom Kulture Blastoff for the day or the weekend and dance till you drop, dine in our superb catering court or simply chill with your own picnic on the grass.
