Movie Info

This ain't your momma's Woodstock. No longer the cultural revolution it once was -- an icon of collective unity working towards the elimination of ignorance and violence -- Woodstock has changed with the times. Welcome to the new buff, tattooed, and nothing-to-lose version of the greatest music festival known to humankind. Woodstock '99 boasts no folkies or old timers to bore you with memories of a golden age. No, this festival is loaded with the aggressive anti-social angst-filled hardcore music that the kids of generations X and Y hold as their anthems. Loaded with pop-punk and thrash rap artists galore, Woodstock '99 is a divergence from the typical person's idea of what Woodstock is and was. This video is a condensed and clean look into the festivities that took place in Rome, New York, in the summer of '99. You may not see the riots or the numerous sexual assaults, but you will see astounding performances by Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, Rage Against the Machine, Jewel, and the Dave Matthews Band. If you missed out on the trip to Rome or you didn't order the pay-per-view package, here's your chance to take part in what may be the most memorable Woodstock of them all.

Audience Reviews for Woodstock '99

Unfortunately, the 30th anniversary concert of Woodstock will forever be remembered not for the music but for the sexual assaults and cases of arson. The crowds were so tightly packed in around the stages that female concertgoers stuck in the sea of people were often raped with no one willing to help them. Then to add to the embarrassment and misery a bunch of drunken idiots start setting fire to everything. It was one hell of a show, where else are you going to see James Brown, Elvis Costello, Creed, Alanis Morisette, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kid Rock, Jewel, Rage Against the Machine and Metallica in one concert? Too bad a bunch of assholes ruined the whole Woodstock goodwill image and forever ended any more anniversary concerts.
