Who closed Woodstock 99?

Red Hot Chili Peppers wrapped up the weekend on Sunday night, and candles were handed out to the crowd in hopes of starting a candlelight vigil against gun violence. However, a fire broke out that led to more. Chili returned to the stage and performed the Jimi Hendrix Show on Fire.

There were also rumors of a secret closing procedure – suggestions ranged from Guns n’ Roses to Michael Jackson – but Chili Peppers was the last to come.

The documentary notes that this disappointment was one factor influencing the Sunday night chaos, which is depicted in footage of towers being brought down and property burned.

“How did we get from here to there?”

There is another documentary about the festival called Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Anger which similarly explored what had happened.

Watchman She reported that her director – Garrett Price – has opened up about his thoughts on the times to this day:

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

He added, “I don’t blame that time for where we are now, but I think there are a lot of interesting threads that you can tie from one end to the other.”

Trainwreck: Woodstock 99 is streaming exclusively on Netflix.
