THIS IS AN ORIGINAL LOGO PINBACK BUTTON BADGE FROM THE FIRST US FESTIVAL HELD OUTSIDE SAN BERNARDINO CALIFORNIA ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND IN 1982. US (UNITE US IN SONG) WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF APPLE CO-FOUNDER STEVE WOZNIAK WHO DREAMED OF CREATING A COMMUNITY THAT MARRIED NEW TECHNOLOGY WITH GREAT MUSIC. NO EXPENSE WAS SPARED FROM THE CREATION OF MISTING STATIONS AND AIR CONDITIONED TENTS FOR CONCERT GOERS TO ESCAPE THE DESERT HEAT TO SOUND AND STAGING INCLUDING THE CREATION OF GIANT DIAMOND VISION SCREENS. EVEN THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM WAS STATE OF THE ART. THE AMPHITEATRE 'WOZ' CARVED FROM SCRATCH OUT OF THE DESERT SAND REMAINS THE LARGEST IN THE WORLD TO THIS DAY. AND FINALLY, THE LIST OF TALENT WAS INCREDIBLE. THIS BLACK AND WHITE LOGO DESIGN IS STRIKING IN ITS SIMPLICITY. THE PIN IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. IT MEASURES 1 3/4 INCHES IN DIAMETER.
