Witnesses claim that the mud Woodstock 99 festival attendees frolicked in was actually a mix of dirt and human waste, according to the upcoming HBO documentary "Peace, Love, and Rage."
In a clip from the movie, which was first shared by Rolling Stone, witnesses say attendees at the 1999 festival lacked access to clean drinking water, which eventually led to the creation of puddles that mixed mud, sewage, and water.
"That mud that these people were in … it was mud and s---," attendee Mike Elling says in the clip
Organizers of the famed festival, which set to recreate the original Woodstock festival three decades prior, set up barrels of water for drinking, but the mostly young male attendees used the barrels for bathing and rendered it undrinkable, according to the documentary footage.
Then, festival attendees broke pipes leading to the barrels of water, causing a flood of water that mixed with sewage from overflowing Porta-Potties. That mixed with mud that attendees played in during the festival, Rolling Stone noted.
"Within the first 24 hours, you had kids rolling around in what they thought was mud, but was really human waste," one witness said in the documentary.
