reason 2 – legendary ‘Dutch Woodstock’ Kralingse Bos

Since the fall of the dynamic Dance Parade in 2010, there was a big vacuum in the Rotterdam dance scene. Fortunately Boothstock Festival filled the gap. The first three Boothstock editions in Zuiderpark were awesome.

In 2015, the organization took the festival to the Kralingse Bos. This city park is real iconic. In the summer of 1970 the Holland Pop Festival, better known as ‘Dutch Woodstock’, took place on that same spot. International bands like Santana, Pink Floyd and The Byrds attracted more than 100,000 visitors. A legendary event, still etched in many Dutch memories.
