Are We Facing Another Mass Extinction Event?

Apple's Steve Jobs is known for his love of music and revolutionizing how we listen to it today. But did you know that the other Steve, Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak, had his hand in the music scene, too?

In the early '80s Wozniak put on a short-lived music event called US Festival through his UNUSON Corporation. The first installment took place on Labor Day 1982. The 1983 festival, its second and final edition, is coming to DVD. That year's event hosted acts including U2, David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, Van Halen, Judas Priest, INXS, Stray Cats and The English Beat, Men at Work, Berlin and Triumph as well as The Clash for one of the band's final performances.

It was Wozniak's intention to "throw a big party in the middle of nowhere." The 1983 festival boasted an attendance of about 670,000 people; however, Wozniak lost millions on it in the end. 

Slicing Up Eyeballs reports that the footage for US Festival 1983: Days 1-3 is already available digitally on iTunes but will be released December 3 on DVD via MVD Entertainment. The film features 23 performances from 14 acts.

Watch U2 perform "Sunday Bloody Sunday" here, and check out the DVD's tracklist below. Let us know what you think in the comments section!
