The best place for rock, metal and alternative music in Aber! A place for listeners of all alternative genres to meet and enjoy Aberystwyth with gigs, weekly nights out and everything else!



RocSoc is Aberystwyth's definitive home of rock, metal and alternative music. You can find us every Tuesday during term time (excluding exam periods), from 9-11pm in the Pier Pool Bar, and 11pm-2am in the Angel Inn backroom. Every week we offer up a place for all rock fans in Aber to enjoy a variety of rock and alternative music, anything from Slipknot and Tool to My Chemical Romance and Against Me!, with some nights geared towards specific genres, and others a mix for everyone to enjoy! Not to mention our request weeks, where those with paid memberships can enjoy requesting three songs of their own choice to be played at the social, so you can introduce everyone to your favourite niche bands, or get us to play your go-to classics!

We also host gigs each academic term, a newly restarted tradition after the pandemic put live music to a halt.


Seen as Rocsoc were missing in first semester, we have started our year in January with a refresher's pub crawl. After this, please expect many themed request nights and joint socials. 

We are trying to add more sober socials into our society so that people don't feel any pressure to drink or be around alcohol. Although, of course, when we have our drinking socials, we don't expect anyone to drink and would still like to make sure everyone is comfortable. 

We now begin in Pier Pool Bar at 9pm where we then move to Angel at 11pm for boogying all night until 2am! 


Our membership costs just £4, and for that price you'll recieve discounted entry to all gigs hosted by RocSoc throughout the academic year, a discount on any other paid-entry RocSoc events, and the ability to make requests at our request nights.

Being a member will also entitle you to requests for our requests nights! Do you want to show your fellow members that niche cover band you found at 4am? Anything that is remotely Rock, Metal or Alternative is fair game, so go nuts!


RocSoc treats the equality and inclusion of all members with the utmost importance. RocSoc has always been run by Students from all walks of life. It is one of our firm beliefs that music can be enjoyed by all and that every student is welcome at RocSoc, regardless of:

  • Age

  • Gender Identity or expression
  • Religious Affiliation
  • Socioeconomic Status
