Watch the Chaos and Horror Unfold in the Trailer for 'Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage'
The documentary arrives on HBO Max this month
Published Jul 07, 2021HBO Max has released the official trailer for its concert documentary about Woodstock '99. Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage is due to arrive on the streamer on July 23, and you can catch a glimpse of the horrors to come in the trailer below.
Directed by Garret Price, Woodstock 99 will feature interviews with various artists who performed at the festival, including Korn's Jonathan Davis, the Roots' Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, Moby, Jewel, the Offspring, and Creed's Scott Stapp. There are also interviews with organizers Michael Lang and John Scher and festival attendees, who will speak on the chaos and violence that unfolded that fateful weekend in Rome, NY, over 20 years ago.
According to a synopsis, the film will examine "how the festival collapsed under the weight of its own misguided ambition," and the influence of pop culture on the "dark energy coming from young white males."
As one interviewee puts plainly in the trailer, "The question quickly became not 'How could this have happened?' but 'How could it not?'"
