This Rockin' Globe

John Menzer, Denmark, 1978

92 min.DK/Documentary

In 1977, the Roskilde International Rock Festival was in its 8th year and recorded 33.000 admissions (in 1995, the count had gone up to 90.000). It was deemed time to capture the event on film. To make things work a bit differently from other rock fest documentaries, an accent was put on the behind-the-scenes work of the roadies. The Chieftains are in evidence, otherwise Danish rock groups dominate.
