Music Festival Becomes the Epicenter of Beatlemania on Labor Day Weekend
Just as the crowds gathered in Washington, D.C. in February of 1964 to see The Beatles® first live concert performance in America, thousands of people from all over the world will once again flock to Washington, D.C. to be a part of the largest Fab Four tribute festival in America – Abbey Road on the River. More than 50 bands will perform on eight stages, each with their own story and inspiration for being there. Some will be outfitted in black “Sullivan suits” and mop tops, others in colorful Sgt. Pepper coats. Festival producers will build an indoor display showcase that will take attendees on a walk back in time where they can see hundreds of historical and collectible items, including photographs taken during the band’s prime, a new replica of the guitar played by George from Gretsch Guitars, and countless books documenting every step of the band’s evolution. The musicians, historians, fans and fanatics, will all “come together” with one mission – to bring the magic of The Beatles® to life for five days during Labor Day weekend at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.
