HBO Woodstock '99 Documentary: Watch Explosive Trailer

'Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Rage' features first-hand accounts from Korn, the Offspring and more

In contrast to its peaceful and celebratory namesake festival of 1969, Woodstock '99 became infamous for its violence, fires and sexual assaults. It's also often been identified as the moment when the nu-metal bubble burst, with Limp Bizkit — particularly their performance of "Break Stuff" — frequently being villainized as the band who lit the final fuse.

Today (July 7th) HBO revealed that it's taking a closer look at the disastrous event via a new documentary called Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Rage, which is coming on July 23rd. It'll be the first film in Bill Simmons' Music Box series, Garret Price is directing, and as Collider reports, it features first-hand accounts from Korn's Jonathan Davis, the Roots' Black Thought, Moby, Jewel, the Offspring, Creed's Scott Stapp and more, some of whom can be seen in the just-released trailer above. The doc also features interviews and insight from Woodstock '99 organizers Michael Lang and John Scher, and culture critics Wesley Morris, Maureen Callahan and Steven Hyden.

The Music Box series will have a total of six films, also including Jagged (about Alanis Morissette's 1995 album Jagged Little Pill, directed by Alison Klayman), Untitled DMX (directed by Christopher Frierson), Listening to Kenny G (directed by Penny Lane), Mr. Saturday Night ("the untold story of Robert Stigwood and how he amped the disco era," directed by John Maggio), and Untitled Juice WRLD (directed by Tommy Oliver). Stay tuned for more info on those.
