RocSoc is the home of Rock/Metal/Alternative music in Aberystwyth, offering a different sound for your nights out. We'll play anything from Reel Big Fish to Slipknot, with absolutely everything that can be considered Rock and Metal in between. Don't always expect to hear everything you know! We try to be different, we want to open people up to new music, but you will still certainly hear those clasics and heavy hitters that you would expect on a night out. And if you aren't a fan of what we are playing, take over! We give regular oppotunites throughout the year for our members to play their own music and dictate the flow of the evening.
You can find us during term time every Tuesday. We usually start at Inn On The Pier from 9PM to give everyone a chance to have a chat before we move onto The Angel Inn at 11PM for some great music that runs until the early hours.
Our Freshers tradition is a pub crawl around Aber, where we finish the night at our societial home, The Angel. Just take a look at some of the wonderful people that joined us this year!
Our most popular events are our Live Nights, we get in bands from around Wales to come to our little town and put on a show for us. They are always great fun and we do our best to get a few Live Nights each academic year.
You can expect plenty of variety throughout the year, we run themed events for Halloween, Christmas and Valentines. We also do things like Pub Cawls, Quizzes, Open Mic, Charity Events and many more!
We are always in The Angel on Tuesdays even if no events are on. We are available on most social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).
RocSoc membership will grant you benefits for your time with us, the biggest one being a discount on all of our events! Get cheaper entry costs to ALL of our events, including Live Nights!
We regularly take requests from our members. Want to hear a classic banger or show people something new? Then keep an eye out for request nights and get the chance to hear them! Absolutely any genre of Rock and Metal is fair game, so go nuts.
