Former MTV host Carson Daly, who was sent to cover Woodstock ’99, revealed that he thought he was going to die during the chaotic weekend. Daly wrote on Instagram that several people have been asking him about his experience at the festival since the premiere of the Netflix doc ‘Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99’, adding “All I can say is that I thought I was going to die.” Carson gave details, writing “It started off great” but added “It got insane, fast. The prisoners were officially running the prison.” He recalled that once Limp Bizkit started performing “Break Stuff” his MTV producers said, “We can no longer guarantee your safety; it’s time to go!” Daly continued: “I remember being in a production van driving recklessly through corn fields to get to safety. It was so crazy and a blur now. I just remember feeling like I was in another country during some military conflict… I have so many fun memories from that era; this was not one of them.”
