Every Atrocious Bucket Hat In Netflix’s Woodstock ’99 Docuseries, Trainwreck

If you’re old enough to remember Woodstock ’99, you’re definitely old enough to remember the chaos that ensued as hundreds of thousands of rowdy concert-goers became upset with the conditions of the festival, and essentially turned the entire affair into a massive riot–mosh pits, fires, buildings torn apart, and semi-trucks burned to the ground.

Netflix’s new docuseries, Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99 captures the mayhem well, shedding light on what caused things to go horribly wrong. The answer depends on who you ask. If you ask the promoters, it was troublemakers in the crowd. If you ask practically anyone else on the planet, they will likely point their fingers at the promoters themselves.

Something else the docuseries sheds light on, though, is a very bad fashion choice of the time. Practically everyone at the festival seems to either be wearing a bucket hat or standing next to someone wearing a bucket hat. Seriously. In fact, there were so many bucket hats to be found throughout the three-episode documentary that we had to catalog them all.

Join us on this trip back to the weirdest and worst part of 1999 as Woodstock ’99 goes up in flames but not without hundreds of bucket hats to light the way.

1. A sea of bucket hats

Seen in: Episode 1

It might be hard to tell given the quality of the video and how many people are smashed in here together, but after looking extensively, there are tons of bucket hats in this crowd. Truly, it was the fashion statement of 1999, for worse or worse. That wasn’t a typo. There’s nothing “better” about it.

Also, we should note that there will be plenty of massive crowd shots with bucket hats strewn throughout. It would be impossible to note them all, so consider this a catch-all.

2. Photobombing bucket hat

Seen in: Episode 1

This guy, in the smart combination of a bucket hat and a baseball jersey, clearly just wants to be in this shot with the girls. Congratulations, you trailblazer. You did it.

4. The chill bucket hat

Seen in: Episode 1

Everyone around him is rocking out, but this fine gentleman doesn’t seem remotely excited. In fact, we can’t tell if he’s even actually happy to be there. Maybe he secretly hates Limp Bizkit. And don’t think we don’t see the woman in the green bucket hat behind him.

5. Talking head bucket hats

Seen in: Episode 1

You’re going to see this background a lot throughout the series and it would be impossible to note all of the bucket hats. Clearly, there are billions, though.

A bucket hat and a pay phone in one shot? This photo could be in a history textbook.

If you’re wondering why this photo is cropped the way it is, that’s because the only clothing this guy is wearing is a bucket hat and a pair of sandals. No, he’s not wearing a bucket hat over his crotch, but that’s not a bad idea.

Leave it to a bucket hat to save an artist painting the peace wall from getting sun in their eyes.

If you’re going to a rave, a regular old bucket hat won’t do. It’s gotta be camo and the brim has to be folded up. We should also note that this is the only piece of clothing that particular raver seems to be wearing.

41. Glow stick bucket hat

Seen in: Episode 2

If you’re at a rave and you don’t have a proper rave bucket hat (see above), then just wrap a glow stick necklace around it. The rest will take care of itself.

There really were a lot of bucket hats in the rave warehouse or whatever it was called. This guy is alternating between his lollipop and making out with a woman. We wonder if those crazy kids are still together today (probably not).

This one really speaks for itself, if we’re being honest.

44. Disgusted at the lack of a clean bathroom bucket hat

This guy is shooting some kind of remote broadcast and is undoubtedly talking about his love for Limp Bizkit.

47. Garbage picnic bucket hats

Seen in: Episode 2

This bucket-hatted fool and his buddy knocked over an art installation, giving bucket hats everywhere a bad name.

Seen in: Episode 2

The docuseries spends a lot of time focusing on how bad conditions got, and rightfully so! It was incredibly disgusting. It’s sad to see all these bucket hats in such poor conditions.

We are genuinely surprised it took this long for this particular combination to appear at Woodstock ’99.

55. Limp bucket hat

Seen in: Episode 2

This particular bucket hat isn’t technically at Woodstock ’99, but it is being worn by Fred Durst, so it can’t be left out. Thanks to the producers of this docuseries for including it.

56. Bucket hat that takes the mosh pit too seriously

Seen in: Episode 2

During Limp Bizkit’s set things went off the rails, which should have been expected given their big song at the time was called “Break Stuff.” But it led to an even more vicious mosh pit, among other bits of destruction. But with that, we get this fellow in an Adidas bucket hat harshly shoving someone to the ground, which feels very in line with the peace and love ethos of Woodstock.

57. Stage dive bucket hat

Seen in: Episode 2

In addition to the mosh pits, there was also stage diving off of plywood, which is a truly ridiculous visual. Thanks to this guy for wearing a bright yellow bucket hat, making him easy to spot.

58. Rave hangar gone wrong bucket hat

Seen in: Episode 2

After Limp Bizkit’s set, it was time for Fatboy Slim in the rave hangar, but as good as this silhouetted bucket hat is, the set itself was a disaster. What you can’t see is it looks as if she’s dancing on a van that was commandeered and driven into the rave venue.

Seen in: Episode 3

With the festival falling apart, several angry concertgoers–including this guy in the blue and white bucket hat–decided to help out by ripping down the “peace wall” erected to keep those who didn’t buy tickets out of Woodstock ’99. Maybe calling it a peace wall wasn’t a great idea.

61. Nightfall day three bucket hat

Seen in: Episode 3

The beginning of the end is what this particular bucket hat signifies. As the sun set on day three, surely those in attendance didn’t realize the festival would literally be set on fire by night’s end.

62. A bucket hat to sum it all up

Seen in: Episode 3

This photo says it all about how Woodstock ’99 ended, with everything in flames–except the bucket hats.

63. These bucket hats are enjoying this too much

These guys call what’s happening Lord of the Flies. We’re going to call it a bunch of angry youths setting things on fire.

Seen in: Episode 3

The last bucket hat in the series is worn by this guy, casually just breaking things, fed up with what Woodstock ’99 was versus what the promise of it was.
