US Festival Laminate

Our collection of Laminates includes those "laminated" in plastic by the production company for the show staff and VIPs; as well as "un-laminated" pieces that were never encased in plastic. Please pay attention to our image to distinguish which one you are buying.

Laminate from personal collection of Mick Brigden. Brigden first began working for Bill Graham in 1970 and by 1977 became one of the two leads of the Bill Graham Management side of the company.

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.
