About us

Midlands Rocks LogoMidlands Rocks is run by an excellent team of reviewers, photographers and researchers to bring you the very best in what is rocking across the region. We have been online since 2009.

Geographically, we focus principally on the West Midlands & East Midlands regions, covering the gigs and endeavouring to bring local bands to a wider audience. While the core of our team are Midlands based, we have reviewers based throughout the UK, so we will occasionally cover gigs and festivals from further afield. If it includes a guitar and the volume is cranked up, we are going to tell you about it.


This website works the hardest of 24 hours a day alongside our Facebook, YouTube & Twitter sites.
