MACROCK, downtown Harrisonburg. The annual music conference known as MACROCK began in Harrisonburg in 1996 as a branch of James Madison University’s student-run radio station, WXJM. The aims of the founders were to bring independent music and DIY culture to the Mid-Atlantic region. Since cutting ties with the school and the radio station, MACROCK has been run by a small committee of volunteers with immeasurable help from local businesses and residents. MACROCK’s objectives remain the same as in its founding: showcase independent musical acts from across the country, as well as inform attendees of current happenings within the DIY realm through label expositions and panels. MACROCK continues to exist as an independent, not-for-profit organization. MACROCK has been, and always will be perpetuated by the belief that music can thrive without a corporate influence.
