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 <>

Just like Woodstock one year later
14 November 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was filmed in June of 1970 and not only did I see the movie when it was released, I was at the music festival in the Rotterdam Woods where it was filmed. Everyone who played at Woodstock and was still alive played here. The concert was great and the film was an excellent documentary of the event which took place over a period of three days. See this if you are looking for the music to transport you back to 1970. Santana never sounded better than when their drums echoed through the woods. This movie is also a visual thrill.
