This epic concert tee is an original keepsake from the 1982 Us Festival. It's aged super well over the years and has plenty of life left. Features double sided print, soft poly cotton blend, and old school graphics for that classic rock n roll vibe.
The US Festival ran once in the fall of 1982 and again in the spring of 1983 just outside of Los Angeles, California. The '82 event played out at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino and coincided with Labor Day Weekend. The show touted an all star lineup of rock, metal, country, new wave acts. Among them were The Police, Fleetwood Mac, Pat Benatar, Oingo Boingo, Talking Heads, Eddie Money, Tom Petty, Jerry Jeff Walker, The B-52s, The Ramones, Gang of Four, Santana, Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffet, The Cars, Dave Edmunds, The Kinks, and The English Beat.
US Festival was founded by creator of Apple computers, Steve Wozniak. His intention was to bring 80s youth together and forge a better sense of community through music and technology. Being the tech buff he was, Woz, incorporated elaborate feats like a Sensadome, a massive air balloon, and $8 million worth of staging. Its memory lives on in the memories of concert-goers, amazing live video footage, and collectibles like this vintage t-shirt.
