Storyline

This film documents the - to the Dutch at least - legendary Holland Pop Festival, held in Rotterdam over the weekend of 26-28 June, 1970. Directly inspired by the then groundbreaking Woodstock Music & Arts Fair (speaking of legends...), the Holland Pop Festival (aka Kralingen, after the neighborhood in whose forest it set camp in) offered the same picture of peace, music and love, with a cast of 60,000 hippies enjoying a hazy and heady weekend of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. That last-named ingredient was provided in spades by a.o. The Byrds, Dr. John The Nighttripper, Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd and Santana, augmented by hip Dutch bands like C.C.C. Inc., Dream and Ekseption. And of course there raged a thunderstorm. Written by Swie Tio <sweet_t_prod@hotmail.com>

Tremendous Time
10 November 2004 | by (noordwijk, netherlands) – See all my reviews

Saw this film after being at the festival itself. A little while ago. Both were very nice experiences.

It's a unique time document. Even in filming, concerning splitscreens and several other technics. I remember [although it's a long time ago] especially Grace Slick when she didn't like the lights

If you have the chance and you like the sixties/seventies sound there's only one thing you can do:

GO SEE THIS FILM! *********
