Description

Great original vintage poster produced for the first-ever US festival in 1982. Showing a map of the festival grounds, this view portrays the site of the US festival, a Steve Wosniak and Billy Graham partnership to instill a sense of unity in youth following the supposed selfishness of the 1970s. The organization of the grounds was paid for by Wozniak, and Graham promoted the event.

The map lists the artists who would be performing at the show, although it leaves off several more such as The Grateful Dead. The verso includes a great deal of information regarding the concert and two inset maps of the region and of the park.

The US festival, despite its large backing, proved to be a success for attendees although plagued by misfortune. The festival saw 114-degree inland California heat, a number of arrests, a large accounting loss, and the attempt to directly transmit photos to the Soviet Union foiled because the cameras couldn't pick up festival-goers in the dark, and more. The stage used at the festival would later end up at Disneyland and is now known as the Fantasyland Theater.
