When two brothers from Wales decided to turn the family farm into a recording studio in the 60's, they probably had no idea that their farmhouse would become a landmark for western popular music. As the world’s first independent residential recording studio, Rockfield quickly became popular among several big names in the industry, and for the past five decades the farm has been the birthplace of some of the most prominent releases, including albums by legends such as Black Sabbath, Queen, Simple Minds and Oasis.

This documentary offers a number of fascinating anecdotes, such as when one of the owners accidentally walked in on Freddie Mercury as he was playing around by the piano with a tune that would later be known as Bohemian Rhapsody, or how Noel and Liam Gallagher were at loggerheads throughout the recording of What's the Story, Morning Glory when the latter clearly just wanted to go to the local pub. Rockfield: The Studio on the Farm is a journey through music history and a celebration of the passion of rock music.
