Rockfield Studios - Legendary music studios  

 

Five decades of recording hits with some of the greatest bands ever and Rockfield is still going strong.

 

Rockfield is a truly magical studio with uniquely dedicated owners and has some of the most well thought out recording spaces we have ever seen plus rare echo chambers and equipment not found anywhere else. Rockfield is pure magic and the very best record producers and artists agree that it's in the top five studios anywhere in the World.

The two studios each offer a unique feel and atmosphere.

 

Great recording spaces set in a fabulous location run by the very best and most enthusiastic people, that's how we think that Rockfield has become so legendary. The studio spaces have evolved over 45 years to offer the most flexible music recording environments.

Over the summer we have been shooting a series of features with some great producers and artists at Rockfield so keep popping back every so often to see what's been added. We have been really excited, to at long last, set up some features at Rockfield. As one of the top 5 studios in the World we feel it's important to cover every aspect of the studio.

 

If you have recorded at Rockfield and have some pictures that we can add to the pages we would be very grateful, you'll get links and credits.

 

Rockfield has two studios, the Quadrangle and the Coach House. Both have their own separate accommodation and living spaces. Each of the studios has an amazing range of recording spaces so loved by so many producers and artisits.
