I remember being a teenager wanting to go to Woodstock ’99. Thankfully I couldn’t afford to go but I remember watching it on MTV and thinking it looked insane. If you don’t know the story basically the promoters were trying to turn a huge profit on the music festival, mostly because of greed but also because they lost a ton of money 5 years prior on another festival they threw.
They cut corners and made it a miserable experience for everyone there. Add the heat and the aggressive rock bands they booked and it really turned into a Trainwreck…just as the name of the documentary says.
