Canet Rock Festival is a great outdoor concert inspired by the Woodstock was first held in July 1975 and which took place over three sessions, always in Canet de Mar (Barcelona). To some represents the beginning of Catalan rock.

The first edition was still under the dictatorship of Franco and without government permission (it was expressly forbidden). He promised "twelve hours of music and madness." It is said that the lashing he collaborated in the organization, the Chamber Zeleste and peppers. The guest singers and groups (Maria del Mar Bonet, Pau Riba, Sisa, Compania Electrica Dharma Orchestra Silverware, etc..) Had in common transgression or, as I started to call themselves, counterculture, manifested mainly in the content the lyrics, using the style of rock and other styles do not like the government or the Church, and the use of Catalan (new song, rock laietà, etc.. Some belonged to what was laietà known as rock. It was the edition most crowded of all, some 40,000 people attended.

El Festival Canet Rock és un gran concert a l'aire lliure inspirat en el de Woodstock que es va celebrar per primera vegada el juliol de 1975 i al que van succeir tres sessions més, sempre a Canet de Mar (Maresme). Per a alguns suposa l'inici del rock català.

La primera edició es va fer encara sota la dictadura de Franco i sense el permís del govern (estava expressament prohibit). Prometia "dotze hores de música i follia". Es diu que La Trinca va col·laborar en la seva organització, amb la Sala Zeleste i la Pebrots. Els cantants i grups convidats (Maria del Mar Bonet, Pau Riba, Sisa, Companyia Elèctrica Dharma, l'Orquestra Plateria, etc.) tenien en comú la transgressió o, com començava a anomenar-se, contracultura, manifestada bàsicament en el contingut de les lletres de les cançons, l'ús de l'estil rock i d'altres estils no del gust del govern ni de l'Església, i l'ús del català (nova cançó, rock laietà, etc. Alguns pertanyien al que era conegut com rock laietà. Va ser l'edició més multitudinària de totes, hi van assistir unes 40.000 persones.
