Here’s How Woodstock ’99 Turned Into A Complete And Utter Disaster

It was complete and utter carnage.

If you’re old enough to remember, then you’ll know that Woodstock 99 has an almost legendary status in the annals of festival history after 220,000 people descended onto the festival site and fucked shit up to the soundtrack of nu metal heroes like Korn, Limp Bizkit and Rage Against The Machine.

The festival was literally nothing more than a glorified three day riot and this short documentary delves into the reasons why this ended up happening. Well worth ten minutes of your time to take a look at it and relive one of the most calamitous major events in world history:

Man, that’s so dumb that they held the event on a military air force base – why would anyone think that that was a good location to hold a festival because it was obviously gonna get really warm and horrible? Really really dumb move and I guess we saw what happened because of it.

Also really funny that they refer to Noodles from The Offspring as Kevin Wasserman. Who the hell has ever done that in history?
