Wizard Rocking!

Facebook Twitter

Love the Harry Potter fandom?

What if there was a way to listen to music that is inspired by Harry Potter and expands on the original stories in wonderful and fun ways?

Well, there is! It's called wizard rock (often shorted to "wrock") and it's pretty darn awesome!

Want some hardrocking punk about Tonks? Want some fanfic ukulele ballads about queer and trans relationships? It's all here, and so much more!

There are and have been hundreds of bands making all sorts of different music inspired by the fandom and the stories, and this Pearltrees serves as an introduction to the community. Explore the links below for ways to discover wizard rock bands, get involved in the wrock community, and see some live shows online!

2020 Wizard Rock Livestreams - A complete list of all the online wrock shows in 2020!

I’m usually over at Your Wizard Rock Resource, so I guess this post is a crossover event. Unless you’re fairly new, you’ve probably noticed the high volume of online wizard rock shows last year. So, I’ve decided to hop over to the Wizrocklopedia and do what I love best: organise and present information about wizard rock. Namely, making an exhaustive list of wizard rock livestreams in 2020. Let’s do this!
