This farm in Rockfield, Wales, is family-run ran as a livestock farm, with pigs and cows. In the 60s, the sons of the family themselves started recording songs there. In 1963, they converted an existing farmhouse into a recording studio. In 1965, they became the world's first residential studio, set up so that bands could come and stay in the peaceful rural surroundings to record. They have two studios, the Coach House and the Quadrangle, which are both set up for digital and analogue recordings.
Since then, the studio has seen numerous famous artists. Among them, Queen with their song Bohemian Rhapsody or The Charlatans, Manic Street Preachers, Robert Plant, Coldplay, Bullet for My Valentine, Sepultura, Simple Minds, Opeth and Motörhead.
In 2020, the documentary Rockfield: The Studio on the Farm was broadcasted, as well as Return to Rockfield, a documentary with Noel Gallagher visiting this place once again, 25 years after the recording of Oasis' hit album (What's The Story) Morning Glory? in there.
