HBO’s documentary on Woodstock ’99 titled Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage is now available to stream on HBO Max. It became available last night July 23, at 9 p.m. EST. The release marks the 22nd anniversary of the concert’s first day. The documentary comes from executive producer Bill Simmons.
The documentary covers how a festival with an attendance of approximately 400,000 people over four days devolved into chaos, violence and destruction, through interviews, in-person accounts, and hours of footage from the lamentable weekend. Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage is an exploration of circumstance, human behavior and an often overlooked era in American history.
