IN CONCERT: The Ramones US Festival, 1982

IN CONCERT: The Ramones US Festival, 1982.

Steve Wozniak, creator of the Apple II, believed that the 1970s were the “Me” generation. 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.
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 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.
