Canet Rock Festival 1975 Spain

Canet Rock Festival 1975 Spain

The film collects in real time the development of the 1975 edition of the Canet Rock music festival, the “Catalan Woodstock”, tells of the emergence of a new musical style, progressive rock (Fusioon, Companya Electrica Dharma, Iceberg …) , As well as a new youth with a proper way of approaching him. Compared by the critics of the moment with the musical documentary “Woodstock” (M. Wadleigh, 1970), the film knew to transmit that the times were changing and that, at least apparently, the years of the repression were already behind - information of the distributor -. (FILMAFFINITY)… 

The Canet Rock festival is going to be a great concert in l'aire lliure which is going to be held for the first time on July 1, 1975, at the same time as Canet de Mar (Maresme). I stretched before the Sis Hores de Cançó, also organized in Canet de Mar, and s'inspirà in previous international festivals with the Woodstock from 1969 to New York and the de l'illa de Wight between 1968 and 1970 to the south d ’ Anglaterra. Aquest 2014 s'ha impulsat a festival touches the mateix also to Canet de Mar, amb groups of pop music of the moment. 

The first edition of the Franco dictatorship is the same as the Franco dictatorship, which did not last two years. It is celebrated on the 26th and 27th of July at the Pla d'en Sala de Canet de Mar and it promised “musical and folkloric events”. The Zeleste Room s'ocupà of the musical program, while the company Pebrots linked to La Trinca hi contribute the infrastructure. Els cantants i grups convidats (Maria del Mar Bonet, Pau Riba, Sisa, Companyia Elèctrica Dharma, l'Orquestra Plateria, etc.) have in common the transgression or, with commencement to anomenar-se, counterculture, manifested basically in the contingut Les lletres de les cançons, l'estil rock and d'altres estils not the taste of the government of l'Església, i l'ús del català (new song, rock laietà, etc.). 

In total, I will participate in: Orchestra Mirasol, Companyia Elèctrica Dharma i Comediants, Pau Riba, Jordi Sabatés, Molina (Lole and Manuel), Maria del Mar Bonet, Fusioon, Ia & Batiste, Barcelona Traction, Gualberto, Iceberg and Orquestra Plateria. The presence of Sisa is to be prohibited by the civil government, if the song “Qualsevol nit pot aletir el sol” is to be played in a stage of enfuesquiton on which the microphone is not lit. It will be the multitudinous edition of all of the rock festivals in l'aire lliure més concorreguts ends at the moment to Espanya, hi van watch between 15,000 and 30,000 people. The film director Francesc Bellmunt directed the film Canet Rock, which premiered the release of l'any 1976. 

The maig of 2014 TV3 goes to the documentary ‘Canet Rock'75, dins of the series’ Dies de transició’, devoted to the anys of the political transition to Catalonia, from the late forensic purposes to the recovery of democracy. Here we offer: 
Dissabte 26 juliol 1975, sound an aclaparador sun, quaranta thousand joves van omplir l'anomenat Pla d'en Sala, Canet de Mar, disposs a viure intensament “12 hours of music and follia”. It was the first Canet Rock, a concert to the air lliure pensat with a great dresser per a totes tendències d'allò that commenced to anomenar-counterculture, rotllo or, simplement, hippy culture. 

Franco faces it as he saw it, and Espanya faces it, he had repressed it, tortured, a prison sentence for political prisoners. Però, between the youth, there were also some vires of the vires, to experiment and share there that moved the seva generació arreu del món. Eren temps of discovery and of challenge: l'amor lliure, les drogues, comic, rock … 

In this episode of “Dies de transició” s'exec Canet Rock 75 de dins: the organizers who are going to risk, the artistes who are going to act i moltes people of the public, l'autèntic protagonist of the festival. I, amb ells, a dels guàrdies civils that vigilaven; Els cineastes going to film tota la nit; The gent of the poble, who watched, in the midst of an inescapable way, the people who had sent the poble. Nombroses fotografies, fragments of the film by Francesc Bellmunt, and an indefinite record for the purpose of reconstructing the unrepeatable ambient of that day and that of the nit, in a space of time, for a period of time, to be felt. 

Nombroses persones, des d'un Pau Riba understandably amnèsic and a reflexive Nazario, ends at l'Eudalina, which goes through the DNI, or in Salva, that goes caure de cap in one of the latrines, narren in these episodes seves experiències To the Canet Rock of 75 and try to explain the social and cultural environment that is possible: the sexual revolution, the arrival of the anomenades “drogues toves”, the comic, tensions generacionals … 

Tot an els trenta anys passats, the company of those hores of music and follia face is molt alive among those who come to live………….. 

Heir to Rock concerts, such as the 1969 Woodstock Festival in the United States or the small island of Wight 1970 located on the south coast of England, opposite the city of Southampton. 
Aparecio Canet Rock, by the hand of the Trinca “Pebrots” and “Zeleste”. Young brother of “Les 6 hores de Canço”, where the youth fashion groups in the Catalunya of the '70s acted. 
Subsequently three more editions of the Canet Rock were realized, in the years 1976,77 and 78. 

A rock concert in Canet de Mar was organized in the summer of 1975 in an estate called “Can Sala”. Although the name “Canet Rock” can lead to deception, since the groups that were part of progressive rock that sounded strongly in Catalonia (Pau Riba, Jaume Sisa, OriolTramvia, Companyia Elèctrica Dharma, Sonic Secta, Urban Music, Orchestra Mirasol, Orquestra Plateria,) The so-called Rock Laieta, a rock / Jazz / rumba / fusion sauce sponsored by the hall and record Zeleste. Also performed other artists like Maria del MarBonet, Lole and Manuel, La voss del Tropico, Ia & Batiste. They had in common the 
Transgression or, as it began to be called, counterculture, manifested basically in the content of the lyrics of the songs, the use of the rock style and other styles not of the taste of the government nor of the Church, and the use of Catalan Jaume Sisa and Pau Riba 
Some young people, already accustomed to foreign festivals in which they saw performances of the Stones or Led Zeppelin, Ramones, Frank Zappa, Blondie, protested of that first “festival of rock” in which the incipient rock that was shown was led by the So personal rock of Pau Riba or Sisa, interspersed with Pi de la Serra or Ia & Batiste, who had very little of the rock that was done outside Catalonia in those days. 

Canet Rock, like most cultural events of the moment were the reflection of its time, with a society with anxieties of change and freedom. A concert with the euphoria of attending a youth festival, still in the life of Franco who died months later. The chronicle of the festival entitled “Canet Rock a concentration camp without rock” in a Valencian musical magazine (Musical World) reflects well the photograph of the moment: “A fence surrounded the fallow field, the dust raised by so many young people eager for freedom was Unbreathable, the music was barely audible because of the poor sound system and the civil guard was watching behind the barbed wire with tricorn and the Z-45 sub-machine in hand: A youth camp without rock. "But that” concentration camp. “ It had the germ of what the new generations were looking for, and for Spain of the moment it was the novelty that was reflected in the chronicles of the other modern periodicals of the Popular Period 1, Vibrations, Ajoblanco, and Star. 

A group of young filmmakers decided to make a documentary, which allows us to accompany the 25,000 attendees and be witnesses, of the music and the atmosphere that was supported in those moments of change of the Spanish society……………..
