The three-part Netflix documentary "Trainwreck: Woodstock '99" traces the failure of all participants in impressive pictures and contemporary witness interviews.

violent excesses, mountains of garbage, chaos instead of peace, love and understanding: Woodstock III, better known as Woodstock ’99, should rise the spirit of the legendary hippie festival. 250,000 to 400,000 people came to the former Airbase in Rome, Upstate New York on the three days in July 1999. But the event, which was to be the largest festival of the decade, became a complete fiasco.

Ray Hadley 2GB storms off Brisbane Ekka broadcast due to technical 'fiasco' and returns to Sydney

  Ray Hadley 2GB storms off Brisbane Ekka broadcast due to technical 'fiasco' and returns to Sydney Hadley told listeners his broadcast from the Royal Queensland Show had been a fiasco from the moment he went on air shortly after 9am and he would not continue. The 2GB announcer had been heavily promoting the Brisbane visit on his program and had been supposed to be at the Ekka all week.Hadley ran the usual introduction to his show, which is also played on Brisbane's 4BC and dozens of network stations around Australia, but it quickly descended into chaos.'Just a couple of little technical problems as we're at the Ekka and things will be rectified by the time I get here tomorrow, I can assure you,' Hadley said.

10 reasons why the most spectacular festival of the decade ended in a disaster:

01. Gier : Despite their 30 million budget, it was saved on everything to get as much profit as possible: security, water supply, hygiene. The tickets cost between $ 150 and $ 180, which was enormous thirty years ago. In addition, the festival could be seen on TV via Pay-Per View for $ 60, which is said to have brought the organizers an estimated $ 30 million.

02. Michael Lang : The legendary organizer of the first Woodstock Festival, confesses in the documentary that he hardly knew a band from the line-up. He was instrumentalized as a constantly smiling figurehead and played down the excesses of violence during the festival until the end.

03. Nu Metal : The old organizers had completely underestimated which audience put bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Megadth and Rage Against the Machine, which aggressive energy they release. The fact that Willie Nelson, Alanis Morrisette and George Clinton also performed at "Woodstock99" was completely lost.

Berlin Pop Festival: So big, so diverse and more colorful than ever

 Berlin Pop Festival: So big, so diverse and more colorful than ever Whoever visits the cultural brewery from August 24th to 26th, a full program awaits. As part of this year's international pop culture festival, over a hundred events take place, including over 80 concerts and DJ sets. In addition, several readings, discussions, films and commissioned works, i.e. order work, are planned for the festival.

04. Toxic masculinity : A large part of the audience apparently consisted of young, spring-break-trained men who lived up uninhibited. Sexual assaults, fights, coercion, rapes and complete riot on the last day of the festival, including burning trucks and stages, were the result.

05. Dirty drugs : not marijuana, but ecstasy, amphetamines and speed shaped the mood.

06. Heat : It was incredibly hot days with up to 38 degrees, without shadows and water (the little that was free at drinking stations was contaminated by faeces from Sunday at the latest. The drinks at the stands cost a fortune.) . The stages were almost four kilometers apart, so that the audience had to make up for long foot marches in a scorching sun.

07. Catastrophic Catering : The food and beverage supply was completely licensed to small businesses, which paid $ 500 for a stand and demanded horrendous prices (initially $ 4 for a bottle of water, at the end of the festival $ 12).

At the Spanish Medusa Festival there was an accident on Saturday, August 13th. An apparently surprisingly surprising storm swept across the grounds of the electro event and brought parts of the assemblies to collapse.

08. Overwhelmed Security : The around 3000 security forces carried yellow T-shirts on which "Peace Patrol" stood. Some of them had been hired from the road and did not train to stop the excesses of violence. Some of them then sold the quiet ones - for up to $ 400 to the highest bidding festival visitors. And when it finally burned everywhere, even the fire brigade refused.

09. Müll : Already at the end of the first day the area drowned in mountains of plastic bottles, beer cans, cardboard boxes and faeces. There was hardly any garbage containers and no regulated waste disposal. The 3600 toilets were far from enough, many were broken on the second day and flooded by faeces.

10. Hippie rooms : At the end of the last day of the festival, the Red Hot Chili Peppers played. The organizers had spread that there would be a surprising climax afterwards. Rumors of a Surprise gig from Prince made the round. But they were just candles that were distributed a thousand times in the audience - for a peaceful world, the spirit of Woodstock. It should be a sign against violence and for stricter weapons laws. The frustrated crowd preferred to tore the wood barricades, fell around PA towers and use the material to spark huge fire, which several band trucks fell victim to. Anthony Kiedis recalled the scenery of "Apocalypse Now". In the end, armed state police moved with 500 men.

FAZIT : 5 ACCOUNDATIONS, countless sexual assault and fights, three (heat) dead, 253 injured, 5162 treatments on the premises; The cleanup took three weeks, 1400 tons of garbage were removed. Read
