Superfest was a rock festival held on February 26, 1982 at the Old Cricket Field in Portland. The festival was noteworthy because of the importance of the headliner bands that played, and from the size of the crowd.

History Edit

Tickets were $20 ($25 at the gate), 20,000 people attended but at 5 pm Sofia Lilland, during a live radio interview from backstage with friend and festival promoter Scotty Caldera, asked Caldera if she could invite everyone listening to come out and be on her guest list. Caldera immediately agreed and within 90 minutes another 5,000 people poured into the venue, swelling the crowd. The entire concert was recorded professionally, and was released on picture disc vinyl as a box-set by Label Records in association with Lovilago Music.

Groups Edit

The groups were:

Devilface set list Edit

A reviewer saw "six scraggly guys playing guitar, bass, upright bass, and Hammond organ, and a crop-haired singer in long-tailed livery coat and eyeliner, plus a wild-eyed guy with a ever-so-infamous La Baye 2x4 "Six" electric guitar in red. Good ol' anti-government punk rock. A large and vocal following cheers them on, and they play with confidence, as if they belong up front of all those people." James Farmer played the entire set sitting on a spare drum throne with Grace, his pet cat at the time, sitting on his lap. James Farmer later stated "She was trying to lick my coiled instrument cable during "Pretty Vacant". I found it amusing and continued playing."
