About Us

Rocksteady has been set up since 2012 and has been quickly making a splash in the events industry. We’re passionate about doing things differently – by giving you exactly what you want, exactly the way you want it. We do not believe in adopting the ‘scattergun approach of adding as many acts, hoping we get it right. Our investment of time into sourcing, vetting, developing and monitoring our artists is something which sets Rocksteady apart. It is only through working in partnership with some amazing people outside of Rocksteady that we will be able to achieve our objectives.
