Well the 30th Anniversary of the first US Festival (September, 2012) came and went without the intended release of the documentary - but not all hope is lost! Yesterday the US Festival Facebook page posted this update on where they are regarding both the 1982 and 1983 US Festivals release:

The 'US' Generation Documentary
Well this should excite the masses! Fleetwood Mac are part of an upcoming documentary on The 1982 US Festival. Check out the official trailer below... Fleetwood Mac come in at about the 2 minute mark where they are shown on stage, in crisp clear footage, singing a bit of Go Your Own Way... They are also on stage introducing Apple co-founder and US Festival visionary, Steve Wozniak.
This looks so cool, I can't wait to see it! The documentary will in some format be released to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the Festival this Labour Day September 3, 2012. Originally scheduled for a Labour Day release the documentary has been pushed back a bit as they are awaiting final interview approvals from key artists that performed.
The 'US' Generation DocumentaryICON Television Music, UNUSON Corporation and Plum Moving Media announce the making of the definitive 1982 US Festival feature length documentary.
