Woodstock Festival 1999

WOODSTOCK 1999

Woodstock 1999 was supposed to be a thirtieth anniversary celebration of the original Woodstock 1969 festival. It was held between July 22nd and July 25th, 1999 but 200 miles away from Max Yasgur’s farm in Bethel, NY in Rome, NY instead. It was heavily promoted and MTV intended to broadcast much of the festival but it was also available live to pay per view cable TV customers in the US.

Woodstock ’99: Remembering the Chaos 20 Years Later

Woodstock’s stalled-before-it-started 50th anniversary celebration has taken over much of the news cycle this summer, but some of us haven’t forgotten the disaster that was Woodstock ’99, which kicked off its main stage 20 years ago today.

Let's Revisit The Chaos Of Woodstock '99, 'The Day The Music Died'

When the organizers of Woodstock 1999 planned the third edition of the peace-promoting music festival, they sought to extinguish the unruly atmosphere that plagued the 1994 iteration. Five years earlier, concertgoers easily snuck in beer and other contraband items through a chain-link fence that barely separated the festival from the outside world. But those conditions — which impeded police efforts to maintain order — were mild compared to what would result at Woodstock ’99.

Woodstock '99 Was a Violent Disaster That Predicted America's Future

The well-documented, pervasive misogyny of Woodstock ’99 is more relevant to America in 2019 than the “free love” politics of its original iteration.

Woodstock 50 appears to be dead with less than a month to go for the 50th anniversary of the original 1969 festival. The 2019 event has been plagued by disorganization, but may also be struggling because of the legacy of a related Central New York festival that happened 20 years ago this week: Woodstock ’99.

Rethinking Crowd Violence: Self‐Categorization Theory and the Woodstock 1999 Riot

Rethinking Crowd Violence: Self‐Categorization Theory and the Woodstock 1999 STEPHEN VIDER

Abstract

According to self-categorization theory (SCT), incidents of crowd violence can be understood as discrete forms of social action, limited by the crowd’s social identity. Through an analysis of the riot at Woodstock 1999, this paper explores the uses and limitations of SCT in order to reach a more complex psychology of crowd behavior, particularly those instances that appear unmotivated, irrational, and destructive. Psychological and sociological literature are synthesized to explore the role of communication in establishing social norms within the crowd. Several modifications to current crowd psychology are proposed, including a false consensus effect of motivation and the mediation of personal and social identities.

Netflix’s Woodstock ’99 Doc Trainwreck Is Secretly an Origin Story for the War Between Millennials and Boomers

It’s 2022, and—as though we didn’t have enough contemporary problems on our minds—people can’t stop talking about Woodstock ’99. The wave of reappraisals of an event that made instant history as one of the biggest music-festival catastrophes since Altamont began on the 20th anniversary of the debacle, with the Ringer’s eight-part podcast Break Stuff. Last summer, Ringer honcho Bill Simmons kicked off his HBO rock-doc series Music Box with Woodstock ‘99: Peace, Love, and Rage, a divisive film that sparked weeks’ worth of discussion. And now, here comes Netflix with Trainwreck: Woodstock ‘99, a three-episode docuseries on the same topic.

At least two women were raped in the mosh pit at Woodstock ’99 last weekend, according to a volunteer who witnessed one assault and a rape counselor involved in assisting the victim in the other.

In each incident, which occurred on different nights of the three-day, 30th-anniversary Woodstock ’99 festival, the woman was allegedly raped and assaulted by multiple men, as concert-goers around the crime cheered her assailants on.

Woodstock ’99: The disturbing true story behind the disastrous music festival

While festivals can be some of the best experiences of a lifetime, Netflix’s new three-part documentary, Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99, shows just how wrong they can go when shockingly poor organisation is combined with nearly half a million people. “If you thought the 6am scene at Glastonbury’s Stone Circle was messy, you ain’t seen nothing yet,” wrote Leonie Cooper in The Independent’s review of the documentary, which depicts the “absolute horror show that was Woodstock ’99”.
