'New Wave Day' from the US Festival, 1983 (video)

Some fabulous person recently uploaded a 90-minute video of the "New Wave Day" performances at the 1983 US Festival.

Acts included: The Divinyls, INXS, Wall of Voodoo, Oingo Boingo, The English Beat, A Flock of Seagulls, Stray Cats, Men at Work, and The Clash. It begins with a "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" style crowd scene, and the performances are pure nostalgic triggers for those of us old enough to have been tweens or teens when this went down.

As Joey De Villa reminds us, the four-day, multi-genre festival was the brainchild of Apple's Steve Wozniak.
