The forthcoming concert film The Us Generation focuses on the 1982 Us Festival, funded by Apple genius Steve Wozniak.
Some 400,000 people attended the event as Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the Police, the Cars, and others performed in San Bernardino, California. Many of those performances are included in the movie.
“The film tells the story of … an epic three-day event featuring an eclectic and unprecedented lineup boasting some of the biggest names in music, performing live in front of over one million people,” producers stated. “Wozniak … 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.”
The Us Generation: The Making Of the 1982 Us Festival will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Aug. 10.
