Waxstock 9... the largest specialist car care event in Europe, if not globally - IS BACK. With over 60 stands, 100 brands and thousands of visitors in just one day, Waxstock 2019 was an unqualified success and 2022 looks set to raise the bar even further. The venue, once again, is the Ricoh Arena in Coventry; BUT it is now called Coventry Building Society Arena. And the date for your diary is Sunday 5th June 2022.

Once again, we host the UK's hardest fought show and shine competition - the ULTIMATE FINISH TOP 16 SHOWDOWN. With five judges, a bias resistant points system and an open entry process, the best detailed cars get the accolades they deserve. Please note that all indoor car space tickets (that have a chance for Showdown selection) have now gone.

For those turning up on the day, the Gliptone Arrive and Shine (limited to 150 cars maximum) also has an outside judging area, allowing car clubs, pro detailers and early risers to compete in one of the following categories: Best Finish, Best Modern Car (less than 3 yrs), Best Older Car (3-10 yrs), Best Classic Car (10 yrs or more ), Best Works Vehicle, Best Car Club Entry. 

Follow our social channels for up to date details here: Waxstock Socials. These keep you in the loop as the show gets nearer. And please like, share, comment and tag - especially if your car is going to be on display somewhere, whether centre of the Showdown or deep within Car Park C...

Sunday 5th June.
The Day No Detailer Should Miss.

The biggest detailing event of the year happens on one day only. In 2022, the date for your diary is Sunday 5th June, over the Jubilee weekend (so there's four whole days off!). If you’ve been to previous Waxstock events, you’ll know what to expect. A packed day full of detailing demos, one-off special deals and impeccable paintwork, topped with a sprinkling of socialising. It’s a great day out and the best detailers’ shopping trip of the year. You could even make a weekend of it, thanks to the on-site Hilton hotel, Grosvenor Casino (open 24 hours, with live entertainment on Saturday nights) and a host of bars and restaurants nearby… it makes Waxstock the ultimate detailing meet.

Exclusive Savings, Products and Prizes

As well as traders offering exclusive show deals (and even products!), Kim’s Corner has dozens of nearly-new detailing products up for grabs. There’ll be prizes to win in the Arrive and Shine and SHOWDOWN competitions, too. So save the shipping instead of buying online, hunt down deals on specialist products, bag bargains that make the entry price seem insignificant and start prepping your car. Please note that there is a FREE cash machine on-site at CBS Arena.

Car Clubs Welcome

We do a special car club deal for 10+ tickets booked via our trade - at - waxstock - dot - com email address (simply email for more info). Clubs usually park in the outdoor Arrive and Shine area, at the front of the Arena (cars must arrive together and spaces are limited... it is best to turn up before 8.00am). What’s more, the top three cars per club will automatically compete for ‘Car Club Winner’ in the Arrive and Shine – potentially winning a trophy for their club and maybe even some products for themselves.
