Among the most important rock festival held in Europe, the Holland Pop Festival (also called Stamping Ground Festival) between 26 and 28 June 1970 gathered near Rotterdam several thousand young people, thanks to the proposal of a cast of considerable interest.
The festival was held in conjunction with the impressive Bath Festival and the organizers thought the Dutch to agree with the British in order to give an opportunity for many groups to perform in both shows.
The Pink Floyd, for example, played an important concert at the Bath Festival on June 27, during which introduced a new suite of "Atom Heart Mother", accompanied by a large horn section and a chorus; the day after the group played at the Holland Pop Festival, but without horns, choir and light show.
In addition to the cast included the Byrds, Pink Floyd, Caravan, Third Ear Band, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Jefferson Airplane, Renaissance, Santana, Soft Machine, Dr. John, Fairport Convention, It's A Beautiful Day, Canned Heat, Pentangle, Quintessence, East Of Eden , Family, Country Joe, Flock and jazz musicians such as John Surman and Art Ensemble Of Chicago. The event was documented with the creation of a film directed by Jason Pohland and George Sluizer.
