Crowfest '98 is a benefit concert held in Liberty City Stadium in 1998, during the events of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It is sponsored by the Liberty Tree, a radio ad for the concert can be heard on Flashback FM, and cannot be watched by the player.

  • Crow himself resembles the pedestrian commonly believed to resemble the singer Kurt Cobain in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, albeit without crow's makeup.
  • This concert might refer to the concert venue Woodstock '99, which was also divided into three stages; West Stage, East Stage and Emerging Artists Stage. The concert is also similar to Ozzfest, since both events were founded by a British singer.
