Additionally, there were 1,200 admissions at onsite medical facilities and 44 arrests. There were numerous reports of sexual assault. Of course, it’s highly likely that there were many more injured people that didn’t go to onsite medical facilities.

The documentary contains news footage that shows four women being raped at the festival. It was also reported that other sexual assaults were seen, some right in front of the stage.

Interviewees from Trainwreck suggest that although Korn’s performances were energetic, Limp Bizkit’s performance of Break Stuff was the turning point. Members of the crowd started causing property damage, and this continued for the duration of the weekend.

Who closed Woodstock 99

Red Hot Chili Peppers ended the weekend Sunday night. Candles were given out to the crowd to help start a candle-lit vigil against violence in gun shootings. A fire broke out that led to even more. The Chili Peppers returned to the stage and performed a rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s Fire.

There were also rumours of a secret closing act – suggestions ranged from Guns n’ Roses to Michael Jackson – but the Chili Peppers were the last to perform.

This documentary shows that Sunday night’s chaos was a result of this disappointment, as evidenced by footage showing towers falling and property being set on fire.

‘How did we get from here to there?’

A documentary on the festival is also available. Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and RageThat also explored what went wrong.

The Guardian reports that its director – Garrett Price – opened up about his thoughts on the era to the present day:

“You start the decade with Nirvana, with Pearl Jam, with hip-hop like A Tribe Called Quest, there’s sort of this idealism in the music, anti-establishment and non-commercialism and you end the decade with commercialism and nihilism. How did we get from here to there?”

He said: “I’m not blaming that time for where we are now, but I think there’s a lot of interesting strands you can tie from one end to the other.”
