Bloodstock have unveiled details of 2019s onsite RAM Gallery, one of the more unique elements that sets Bloodstock apart from other festivals. Festival founder and globally renowned artist, Paul Raymond Gregory, created the onsite RAM Gallery in 2014 and each year the purpose-built structure showcases not only some of Paul's work, but several other Bloodstock-related rock and Metal-friendly artists and creatives in a professionally hung and sensitively lit environment.

This year, the RAM Gallery is delighted to present for the first time a selection of pieces by legendary rock photographer Ross Halfin. For four decades Ross has been among the world's most renowned rock photographers, capturing iconic images of legends such as Iron Maiden, Metallica, Def Leppard, Guns N' Roses, Kiss and many more.

Also making their RAM Gallery debut this year is Peter Sallai of Mortpaint Graphics. Peter is a Hungarian artist who has worked with many bands including Korpiklaani, Annihilator, Tyr, Mayhem, Powerwolf, Satyricon, Kreator and Friday Bloodstock headliners, Sabaton. Also exhibiting for the very first time anywhere is artist/tattoo artist, Danny Edwards with his horror and Metal themed pieces.

Of the returning artists, Bloodstock are proud to once again present work by respected British photographer Paul Harries. A master lensman for well over two decades, Paul is one of Kerrang! Magazine's senior photographers and boasts a portfolio rivalling the best in the business. A familiar face will also be welcomed back to RAM, Oliver Andrew of Cynosure Guitars, with five specially-commissioned new pieces which showcase his outstanding skills as both a designer and luthier. For 2019 he has gone where few guitar builders ever could, creating pieces inspired by the three headline acts at Bloodstock 2019 (Sabaton, Parkway Drive and Scorpions), and the imagery and artwork of festival partners, Hobgoblin.

Cynosure's previously commissioned guitars for the RAM Gallery will also be exhibited. Heathen Waxworks will once again have their artisan candles showcased in the gallery, although you can also visit their stand in the main arena where they'll be selling their hand-carved and painted waxy wares, including a 2019 limited edition (of 200) Bloodstock candles on a first come, first served basis.

Lastly, but most definitely not least, Paul Raymond Gregory will be exhibiting some of Saxon's original album sleeve artwork and fine art prints to celebrate Saxon's 40th Anniversary as a band, plus his Bloodstock artwork from down the years and a few other surprises.

Bloodstock have also revealed the 'after hours' entertainment taking place over at the Sophie Lancaster stage after the bands finish. For those of you less keen on sleep, the tent will transition to party night with an array of DJs to soundtrack you into the small hours. Thursday sees DJ Chunks knocking out the classics and plenty of opening night beer drinking tunes, Friday night it's the Feedback Club Night triple assault with DJs DeadDancer, Jammie and Soundwave, whilst Saturday DJ Spoonicus will be playing Metal floor-fillers and singalong anthems.

Sunday night is closed out by DJ Asha playing a wealth of rock and Metal hits, including those Journey/Toto/Foreigner classics we all love at 2.00am after a dozen drinks. And if a party in the Sophie Lancaster tent doesn't take your fancy and you prefer something more sedentary, there'll be some classic movies screening over in the Hobgoblin New Blood stage every night; 'Wayne's World 2' (7.00pm), 'Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey' (9.00pm) on Thursday night, 'Conan' on Friday (10.30pm) and 'Dusk 'Til Dawn' on Saturday (10.30pm).
