Midnight Riot Magazine was created with a passion for emotion, and the family feeling the arts bring. Being from New Jersey, our music and art screams boldness that we are proud of, with a ‘watch me’ attitude that runs deep in our blood. Our main focus is to not only bring light to our local scene, but also to upcoming or touring artists both nationally and internationally.

No matter where you are from, being an artist comes with a heavy crown. The weight is people constantly doubting you and then proving them wrong. We want to be know for being genuine to who we are and where we come from all while continuing to grow and branch out to support artists everywhere.


Our Issue 1 is out now featuring State Champs, Grayscale and more!
