The US Festival, brainchild of Steve Wozniak, was held over Labor Day weekend in 1982 in an effort to shift away from the ‘Me’ Generation of the 1970’s. According to the Philosophy outlined on the verso,

“the intent of the Festival is to refocus national attention on the power of working together – a refocusing which will encourage the development of an ‘Us’ decade, a time when we, as a nation, can renew our tradition of joining together to accomplish common goals.”

The folding concert guide includes directions, helpful information, and simple diagrams of the venue. The color centerfold presents a bird’s eye view of the concert grounds, with the weekends’ headlining bands boldly listed across the top of the page. Special appearances (not listed) included the Ramones, Grateful Dead, and Gang of Four.
