Pomona is a name with several cultural and geographic references, including a Roman goddess, a city in California, and an island in Pomona Rocks’ home of Manchester, UK.

Pomona Gardens was a popular entertainment venue that once operated on the island, hosting concerts and other events during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The venue featured the Royal Pomona Palace, a large concert hall which could accommodate up to 30,000 people, as well as gardens, a lake, and other attractions. Unfortunately, the concert hall was destroyed by fire in 1913, marking the beginning of the venue’s demise. While some of the gardens and other features of the venue remained in operation for a few more years, the site eventually fell into disrepair and was largely abandoned. Today, efforts are underway to revitalize the area, with plans for new residential and commercial developments that will celebrate the island’s industrial heritage and natural beauty. Despite the loss of the concert hall, Pomona Gardens remains an important part of Manchester’s history and cultural legacy.

The Pomona in our name refers to the Roman goddess of fruitful abundance, specifically associated with the cultivation of fruit trees and orchards. She was also regarded as a patron of gardeners and horticulturists.

The connection between Pomona the goddess and Pomona Rocks, a music platform, may not be immediately apparent. However, the name “Pomona” was chosen for its association with abundance and growth, as well as its connotations of natural beauty and harmony. These values are reflected in Pomona Rocks’ mission to support emerging artists and showcase the best and most influential tracks of the season across the rock and metal spectrum.

Furthermore, Pomona Rocks believes that like a fruitful orchard, the world of music is constantly evolving and growing, with new artists and subgenres emerging all the time. Pomona, as the goddess of fruitful abundance, represents this constant growth and renewal, and serves as a symbol of the ever-changing and vibrant world of music that Pomona Rocks seeks to showcase.
