This heather gray shirt is from the 1983 US Festival. The front graphic shows a rainbow metallic guitar neck exploding out of a surrealist background. It says "US Festival '83" above. On the back, the US Festival logo can be seen again, and above, it says "Today Tomorrow Together". Below, there is a list of all the bands that played over the weekend the festival was held. The lineup included The Clash, Men at Work, Stray Cats, Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, John Cougar, The Pretenders, Missing Persons, and U2, among many others. Each day was split up by musical genre- new wave, rock, heavy metal, and a fourth country day that was added later. 

US Festival was funded and partially organized by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. He wanted to revolutionize the musical festival scene and recreate an event like Woodstock in the 80s. He lost millions of dollars putting on the event, because many of the musical acts asked for a lot of money because it was quite last minute. The 1983 US Festival was the second and final year of the event, not due to a lack of interest, but due to unsafe an unsafe festival environment and over $20 million lost over both years. 

Tag says large, but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium.

There are paint spots throughout, and the graphic on the front is faded. See pics.
