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>

Interesting Film
12 December 2007 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Thanks to Youtube, I have seen various clips of this film and it looks like a pretty interesting look at one of the most famous post-Woodstock festivals. In this film you get a very mixed bag of performers including Woodstock veterans (Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe McDonald, Canned Heat and Santana), great bands who never quite caught on (Its a Beautiful Day and Family) and future superstars (Pink Floyd). The thing I really liked about it were the interviews that gave you a look at how the scene was during that era. Also, it was interesting to see a lot of these artist either at their ascendancy, as was the case with Pink Floyd and Santana, or at their decline, as was the case with Jefferson Airplane who were just about to lose Marty Balin as he was to quit a few months later.

However, the only complaint I have about the film is the fact that it sounded like whoever recorded the sound for the festival messed up when recording the crowd noise and went back into the studio later and recorded various people in a small room to simulate the crowd reactions.

Nevertheless, this is a fairly good rockumentary.
