Rock City is one of the UK’s leading live music venues and clubs. It is viewed by many as the catalyst for Nottingham’s rise in the music scene and has become a gathering place for musicians and fans for decades.
Rock City was worried that their general image was too “rock” focussed and wanted a website that would welcome the entire music community. The site needed to showcase the variety of events the venue holds while offering people a quick and easy way to buy tickets for those shows.
Joomla software was used to create a user-friendly Content Management System (CMS) that allows Rock City to regularly and easily update its website.
Live social media feeds, user-generated content, and syndicated content throughout the site create a vital community environment and allows the site to grow into an organic fan-driven website.
A gig guide, archive, and blog provide a wealth of relevant information, creating a musical hub for the venue.
A ticket purchasing option is easily accessible and allows visitors the ability to buy tickets for upcoming events.
Since it’s launch, the Rock City website has had a positive reception and has been featured in several publications. On the back of its success, Cite has been commissioned to produce other websites for Rock City’s partner companies.
“We’re very pleased to have been able to work alongside Cite during the redevelopment of Rock City’s new website. The Cite team made each step of the process easy and manageable with the end result being a brilliant new website full of great content and up to date information on all of our gigs and club nights happening at Rock City.”
