Even though "pop" is the Dutch word for "doll", the name of the festival does not originate from the pink doll in the festival logo. The festival takes place at Whitsun, "Pinksteren" in Dutch, hence the "Pink" in the name.

In 1975 the weather was chilly but dry. In 1979 the weather was sunny and warm,with later on thunder and hail.
