A documentary series chronicling the infamous Woodstock ’99 festival is in development with Netflix, Deadline reports.

According to the trade, the series will include “unseen archive footage and intimate testimony from people behind the scenes, on the stages and in the crowds.”

Woodstock ’99 featured performances from artists including Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Kid Rock and Limp Bizkit, though the actual music isn’t what the festival is now known for. The doomed event is instead remembered for the chaos and violence that erupted during it, including allegations of sexual assault.

Last year, a podcast delving into Woodstock ’99 was released to mark its 20th anniversary.
