The time when Apple profits went to a massive rock event: The 1982 US Festival
Steve Wozniak, the other founder of Apple named Steve, has always been a major, major music fan. It was quite the three-day affair, too. Now, though, there’s a new documentary coming this week. It was a utopian sort of dream that ultimately failed but is still remembered as one of the more influential music events of the last century. The US Festival hasn’t been remembered as well as, say, Woodstock, Altamont, and a few others. In the early 80s, he decided to take some of the money he made from Apple Computers and plowed it into a massive festival in Southern California. Tom Petty, The Police, Fleetwood Mac, Santana, Santana and many more performed in front of about one million people–yes, it was that big–at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino. Check out this trailer.
