How The 1982 Us Festival Broke the Mold

The Us Festival aimed to be bigger and better than Woodstock. And they succeeded.

Blending rare concert footage with insightful interviews with both organizers and performers, The Us Generation tells the story of the groundbreaking 1982 US Festival. Performing live in front of over two million people in San Bernardino, CA, the festival was an epic three-day event featuring some of the biggest names in music. The Us Festival was the brainchild of Apple visionary Steve Wozniak, who wanted to create something that was a true celebration of Americana, cultivating positive vibes and building a deep sense of community through the power of technology and music.

Highlights include performances by chart-topping superstars, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, alt-rock trio The Police, blues-rock heroes Fleetwood Mac, guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana, retro-chic favorites The B-52s, and new wave icons The Cars. The film also includes archived appearances by Johnny & Joey Ramone, Carlos Santana, Sting, Ric Ocasek, Danny Elfman, and Fred Schneider. Additionally, this documentary features interviews with festival founder Steve Wozniak, Mick Fleetwood, Eddie Money, Marky Ramone, Kate Pierson, Stewart Copeland, and Mickey Hart, among others. Don’t miss the incredible documentary as part of True Story Tuesdays, Tuesday at 9/8c.
