All you need were some flowers in your hair. The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people, mostly young people sporting hippie fashions of dress and behavior, converged in San Francisco‘s neighborhood Haight-Ashbury. The movement of that summer was diverse. A few were interested in politics; others were concerned more with art (music, painting, poetry in particular) or religious and meditative practices.

50 years later the summer of love & the sixties still inspires people to create art and make music.  The Stangs for example create an own genre called Dune Beat. The Stangs is a Beat group from the Hague. By combining influences from the sixties with sounds inspired by the Dutch west coast, they create their own genre called Dune Beat. Expect jangly guitar and organ riffs backed by a melodic bass and swinging drums, yet still leaving room for harmonies with the occasional shout. Watch “Look into the sun” from their Frequenzy session.
