While there have been a plethora of horror stories involving concerts and music festivals throughout history, few have reached the level of insanity like that of Woodstock 1999. Some of you probably already know about the chaos involved with this festival, but for those who don’t:
Woodstock was once a major music festival that took place here in the States. It attracted a plethora of acts across various musical genres. At Woodstock 1999, metal acts like Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Korn, and Rage Against the Machine were present. Around 400,000 people were in attendance that particular year, and what ended up taking place was pure madness. Between fires, destruction of property, and more – it was a nightmare.
This infamous Woodstock festival will be covered in a new documentary coming to Netflix; said documentary is called Clusterf**k: Woodstock ’99. Per the description associated with the documentary’s trailer:
“Woodstock ‘99 was supposed to be a millennium-defining celebration of peace, love and great music. Instead, the festival degenerated into an epic clusterf*ck of fires, riots and destruction. Utilizing rare insider footage and eyewitness interviews with an impressive list of festival staffers, performers and attendees, this docuseries goes behind the scenes to reveal the egos, greed and music that fueled three days of utter chaos.”
