A new trailer for an upcoming Netflix docuseries reminds us just how much of a clusterfuck Woodstock 1999 really was.
Woodstock '99 was set to celebrate the legacy of the 1969 Woodstock event, but instead was remembered for the fires, fights, looting and sexual assault allegations that occured over the four days.
The three-part docuseries, which is literally called 'Clusterf**k: Woodstock '99,' shows us unseen footage of the festival, like commercial archives and artist videos, to revisit the festival-gone-wrong.
The docuseries will also show never-before-seen interviews with a bunch of the festival's artists and attendees, including Korn’s Jonathan Davis, Jewel, Fatboy Slim, Bush’s Gavin Rossdale, and the late Woodstock organizer Michael Lang.
Executive producer Tom Pearson said in a statement:
“Woodstock is supposed to be synonymous with peace, love and great music. But in 1999, a much hyped 30th anniversary revival of the festival ended in chaos with fires, riots and allegations of sexual assault.
“What caused the festival to explode into violence? Was it a product of late 90s societal dysfunction, fueled by entitled frat boys? Incitement by the aggressive music of headlining rap metal bands – Korn, Limp Bizkit, Rage Against the Machine?
"Or the inevitable result of ruthless commercial exploitation by the festival organizers?”
Have a watch of the trailer below.
'Clusterf**k: Woodstock '99' is set to drop on August 3 on Netflix.
