Easly the hippies in the 60s. Monterey Pop and Woodstock.

I'm quite worried that there's never really going to be a proper musical movement in my lifetime, the internet is the closest i've got so i'm going to go with that.

the internet by a ridiculous order of magnitude.

while the hippie and punk movements were significant to their generations, and those who want to try living up to ideals from the past, the initial cultural movement they provided was rather limited in its scope.

10 years later (as in when napster started and p2p sharing really took off) the internet is still finding new ways of providing new music to people in ways most people never imagined. and unlike the other music/culture movements it hasn't started losing its popularity in the mainstream.

we might not have a face or a festival to brand the net with yet but i think it's foolish to deny the massive impact the net is having on music and culture in our modern day.

In terms of influence on modern music, I think the Delta Blues movement takes the cake. Nothing, I mean NOTHING would have happened if there we never had the blues legends like Muddy Waters, B. B. King, Bo Diddley, Otis Redding, etc. There were earlier blues musicians and guitarists (like one of my favorites, Robert Johnson) but it was largely those legendary Chicago blues that brought it out as a real musical genre. And as far as I can tell, there wasn't too much that predated the blues aside from African-American spirituals and call-and-response music. I shudder to think what would have happened without them. We'd still be stuck with goddamn cracker music until the end of time.

1960's pirate radio.
From a British perspective.

I'm glad to hear that Europe doesn't exist.

1960s hippie movement. I so wish I was there to be part of it.

And where do you think The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, and The Stones got their music? Surely not from other European bands? I can't think of a single early rock band that wasn't heavily influenced by delta blues or Elvis Presley. No, I can promise you we'd be living in a much sadder musical universe if it weren't for those few blues royalty.
