Woodstock Planning Nonstop Pay-Per-View Coverage

If you want to check out this year's 30th anniversary edition of Woodstock, but you don't want to head to upstate New York, you'll be glad to learn that you can catch the Woodstock '99 vibe at home... for a price.

Organizers of this year's revisitation of the Woodstock oeuvre have announced that every minute of this summer's three-day event will be available via pay-per-view. The show, set for July 23-25, will be carried live for 60 straight hours by Viewer's Choice, DIRECTV, and TVN.

Spokespeople for the festival told MTV News that cameras will be rolling on live performances as well as Woodstock's nightly raves and the uncensored hijinks of concertgoers, providing plenty of potential programming for viewers who tune in after the action on the main stage stops.

This year's Woodstock will feature sets from Metallica, DMX, Korn, Bush, Jewel, Limp Bizkit, Rage Against The Machine, and a boatload more. Viewers who opt for just one day of coverage will have to shell out

$29.95, while the entire weekend is available for $59.95.
