The giant Diamond Vision video screen made its first American concert debut at the US Festival in 1982. Diamond Vision screens became a staple feature of big festivals and concerts from then on.

The US Festival was a celebration of technology, promoted by Bill Graham and sponsored by Steve Wozniak of Apple Computers. The event took place in 105 degree heat, hosted 400,000 people, saw 12 overdoses and 36 arrests, and was a commerical failure (with losses totaling $12.5 million), but that didn't discourage Wozniak from sponsoring another US Festival the following year.
