In case you don’t know already, Netflix has released a new documentary titled Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99, which explores the chaos that took place at the music festival.
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.
Among those who reflect on the chaos that took place during Woodstock ’99, many point to Limp Bizkit as a band who got crowds worked up. In the Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99 documentary, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis speaks to Limp Bizkit’s performance that year, in part sharing: “I loved how they [Limp Bizkit] just didn’t give a fuck, period. He [Fred Durst] was just like the ringleader. He’d always just get people to do the craziest shit.”
For those of you who never got the chance to see this live performance, we searched around YouTube and found video of Limp Bizkit’s entire set from that Woodstock festival. This footage was found via the YouTube channel Limp Bizkit Brasil. Below you will find the hour-long video featuring all of Limp Bizkit’s Woodstock performance.
