Woodstock '99

Woodstock '99 Concert Report
Including my personal coverage of the riots.
Article By Steven R. Rochlin

 

August 10, 2022 Update
Since the recent 2022 documentary about Woodstock '99 in Rome, New York, I've noticed quite a bit of interest in my below live daily report posted back in July 1999. I've posted the highest resolution photos possible. My humble appreciation for your very kind understanding, as back in 1999 digital camera technology was what it was. The original files are from an Olympus ??? with 1280 1024 resolution. To see the full res photo, simply open image in new window.

And now on with the show....

 

  This web page shows photos and commentary of the Woodstock riot that happened during the final hours of Woodstock 1999. A full Woodstock '99 show report, including backstage photos and much more, are also online at the links below. Don't forget to tell your friends about us as we are independent media and refuse to allow the "spin doctors" their way.

 

 

  Welcome to Enjoy the Music.com's Woodstock 1999 show coverage. As most of you might know by now, a huge riot broke out at the end of the Woodstock 1999. There was already a very small fire burning during the last scheduled band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This fire was located in the rear part of the audience grounds of the East stage. The promoters did briefly stop the band to ask for the 200,000+ person crowd cooperation to move as they wanted to get firemen and their trucks to extinguish the small fire. Fortunately, the music began about four minutes later. Unfortunately, the crowd not only did not allow the fire team access to the fire and, in fact, more fires were set!

During their performance, the lead singer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers commented how it looked like Apocalypse Now in the audience as there were multiple fires by this time. The Red Hot Chili Peppers left the stage ending their normal performance for shows (but added the Hendrix song "Fire" to the scheduled encore due to the fires according to a member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers employees).

In fact the promoters still allowed the laser light show tribute to Jimi Hendrix to go on, though it was very short and did not include and live performances as was planned.
