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>

Nice Attempt (but it's sure no Woodstock)
24 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Love And Music',also known as 'Stamping Ground' in the U.S.,is a documentary (or rock doc)about a three day,open air festival in the Netherlands in 1970,that passed itself off as a European Woodstock (or Isle of Wight). The talent included The Jefferson Airplane,It's A Beautiful Day,Pink Floyd,T-Rex,and others. The film gains points for how much of the performances were used (which was not always). The film seems to skip hither & yon from one to another,without much in the way of a complete performance (too many bands are sadly shortchanged),and the camera isn't always where it's supposed to be (plus the editing is terrible---Pink Floyd's segment seems to be chopped up fragments of two or three different pieces of music in one mish mash). Hopefully, one of these days,an augmented version of this concert film,with extra footage will be finally released on DVD/Blue Ray Disc. Not rated by the MPAA,but contains the usual glut of nudity,raunchy language & dope smoking that is expected with concert films of that era
