Woodstock ’99 will be the subject of an upcoming docuseries on streaming giant Netflix.

Per Deadline, the docuseries has reportedly already started production and is being helmed by the same production company behind two other popular Netflix documentaries: Don’t F**k with Cats and Fear City: New York vs. The Mafia.

The docuseries will not only delve into the organization of Woodstock ’99 but how the festival literally went up in flames on the festival’s fourth day during the closing set from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The festival’s legacy, of course, is anything but peace and love, especially factoring the many instances of rape, sexual assault and general violence that took place. Add in the horrendous hot weather and various vendor issues, and Woodstock ’99 was a perfect storm of chaos.

The project also touts never-before-seen archival footage and interviews from people who attended and worked the festival.

So far, an estimated release date is not currently known.
