21 September - Progressive Rock Dayy in Argentina
Progressive Rock, also known as Prog Rock, is a subgenre of rock music that developed from psychedelic rock. It was created with the aim of boosting the artistic credibility of rock music.
September 21 marks the International Day of Progressive Rock, a subgenre of rock that achieved great popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The celebration of this date is intended to raise awareness of this musical trend that has thousands of fans and enthusiasts around the world.
On September 21, 1970, rock music was censored for the first time in Argentina. During the de facto governments of Juan Carlos Onganía and Marcelo Levingston. Great fear was generated by what was going to be "The first Argentine Woodstock" in the city of Lobos, Buenos Aires.
However, it was to be expected, since this country did not have full democratic freedom until 1983. And any massive event supported by young people was forbidden, because the dictatorial governments knew that the youth was gaining strength in the face of society and the nefarious politics.
