Woodstock '99 (also called Woodstock 1999), held July 22–25, 1999, was the second large-scale music festival (after Woodstock '94) that attempted to emulate the original Woodstock festival of 1969. Like the previous Woodstock festivals, it was held in upstate New York, this time in Rome (roughly Template:Convert from the site of the original event), and the attendance was approximately 400,000 over four days.

Excerpts from the performances were later released on compact disc and DVD. Woodstock 1999 was marred by environmental conditions, violence, sexual assault, allegations of rape, looting, vandalism, and fires.<ref name=ergchas/>
