Music and the Elusive Revolution

Eric Drott

University of California Press

This chapter examines how the relationship between the nascent rock community and left-wing groups evolved in the late 1960s and early 1970s, focusing on the institution of the rock festival, viewed as a site of contention between different political and musical communities. While rock enthusiasts viewed festivals as a vehicle for propagating rock culture within France, certain segments of the extreme left saw them instead as occasions for inciting youth revolt—and thereby reigniting the revolutionary impulses dormant since May '68.

Keywords:   rock community, left-wing groups, rock festival, France, rock culture, youth revolt
