was the first music festival held inside continental Europe [at Amsterdam's
Rotterdam Woods], a year after Woodstock. The performers were a who's
who of the Rock Scene, featuring artists either at their ascent [Pink
Floyd and Santana] or at their decline [Marty Balin left Jefferson Airplane
a couple weeks later, while Alan Wilson of Canned Heat committed suicide
a month after this performance].
Jason Pohland's film is an excellent documentary that
boldly captures the era and gleefully whisks the viewer back to the '70s..
point to this event as the beginning of the Dutch policy of tolerance
Even though there were many undercover police patrolling the festival,
they had orders not to arrest anyone
for the sale or use of drugs. The same applied to the (then) public nudity
laws which have since been relaxed.
