'Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, And Rage'
Doc Preview Chronicles Music, Mayhem at Ill-Fated Fest
The dream was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the most iconic music festival of all time. The reality was much, much darker: four days of torrid heat, horrendous sanitation, overpriced food and aggro bands that whipped the tired, tanked audience into a mad frenzy.
Woodstock 99, the first film in Bill Simmons' Music Box HBO series, examines how the festival collapsed under the weight of its own misguided ambition.
The HBO original documentary premiered July 23, 2021 on HBOMax
