Brooklynvegan.com recently wrote about an interview/story Syracuse.com conducted with Festival organizer Michael Lang (co-creator of the original 1969 Woodstock) for the upcoming Woodstock 50th Anniversary Festival in August. Inside the interview Michael Lang is now apparently retroactively partially blaming Jugglaos for the mayhem that occurred during the infamous Woodstock 1999. Its in the next to last paragraph of the story.
“Lang also brought up the troubled, chaotic 30th anniversary edition of Woodstock with Syracuse.com, Woodstock ’99, saying that this year’s edition wouldn’t make the same mistakes. “In the end, it was partially my fault,” he said, “partially the fault of the fans of Insane Clown Posse who were running amok all weekend. But at the end of the show, the Chili Peppers were on stage closing the festival. They had been given permission to hand out candles, and that was a mistake. [People] started to set things on fire, and it started to grow.” He also blamed “angry” music of the era, mentioning Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” as an example. “The music we have this time is not angry, it’s very progressive and very socially relevant,” he said.”
