The US Festival (US pronounced like the pronoun, not as initials) was the name of two early 1980s music and culture festivals.

Background

Steve Wozniak, cofounder of Apple and creator of the Apple I and Apple II personal computers, believed that the 1970s were the "Me" generation.[1] He intended the Us Festivals, with Bill Graham's participation, to encourage the 1980s to be more community-oriented and combine technology with rock music.[2] The first was held Labor Day weekend in September 1982 and the second was Memorial Day weekend in May 1983. Wozniak paid for the bulldozing and construction[3] of a new open-air field venue as well as the construction of an enormous state-of-the-art temporary stage at Glen Helen Regional Park near Devore, San Bernardino, California.[citation needed] (This site was later to become home to Blockbuster Pavilion—now San Manuel Amphitheater—the largest amphitheatre in the United States as of 2007.)[citation needed] The festival stage has resided at Disneyland in Anaheim since 1985, and has operated under various names and functions as the Videopolis dance club, the Videopolis Theatre, and the Fantasyland Theater.[citation needed]

Labor Day Weekend, 1982

The festival ran for three days, in 110 °F (42.5 °C) weather. There were 100 arrests[citation needed] and a reported 35 drug overdoses.[citation needed] One "associated" murder of a hitchhiker occurred the day after the event.[citation needed] The festival lost a reported $12 million.[4] (Bands are listed in the order they appeared.)

Memorial Day Weekend, 1983

The reprise festival ran for three days, this time at the helm was Colorado-based promoter Barry Fey, who with Wozniak added a fourth Country Day a week later. Attendance was reported at 670,000 when you add each day's total together; the festival still lost $12 million.[5] There were two reported deaths.[6][7]

Home video releases

In 2003, the band Triumph released a DVD of their US Festival performance, Live at the US Festival. In 2011 Shout! Factory announced plans to release a series of live concert DVDs from the US Festival. The first two of these releases, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, were released November 15, 2011. The third DVD release from Shout! Factory was Quiet Riot, released on March 27, 2012.[citation needed]

On September 18, 2012, Shout! Factory released The English Beat: Live At The US Festival, ’82 & ’83 on CD/DVD.[8]

On November 19, 2013, Icon Television Music released The US Festival 1983 Days 1-3 on iTunes. This is the only US Festival release authorized by Steve Wozniak and the Unuson Corporation.

Judas Priest's 30 year anniversary release of Screaming for Vengeance included a DVD with footage of their set from their 1983 appearance.
