Netflix is currently developing a docuseries about Woodstock '99.

Woodstock '99 drew in a crowd of 400,000 people, with acts such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and Elvis Costello. But the festival was remembered more for the fires, fights, looting and sexual assault allegations that occured over the four days.

As reported by Deadline, the series will explore the culture that created the infamous festival, and will dive into how "three days of peace, love and music" turned into dozens of arrests and thousands of injuries.

The project is being produced by Raw, who were responsible for the Netflix series "Don't f**k with cats" and "Fear City: New York vs The Mafia".

Through unseen archive footage, interviews with punters and performers, "the series aims at telling the untold story of a landmark musical moment that shaped the cultural landscape for a generation", Deadline reports.

We haven't yet heard when the docu-series will be released, but we'll be sure to let you know when we find out.
