In celebration of the 50th anniversary of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” Connecticut will be the home of the East Coast’s only Beatles Music Festival, the “Fab 4 Music Festival,” to be held on June 10th to commemorate the occasion, and tickets are now on sale.
The full-day of Beatle-themed entertainment will “come together” at the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, CT, where there will be two stages of performances, allowing twice the number of artists. Half of the groups will be performing indoors, under the Dome, while the other half will be playing outside on the patio.
The popular New York/New England regional Beatles-themed festival, known in past years as “Danbury Fields Forever,” is a family-friendly Music, Foods & Arts Festival featuring the music of The Beatles, their solo material and songs from the sixties. The hours are 1pm until 10pm on June 10th, and, again in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of “Sgt. Pepper” and the year 1967, advance “Ticket to Ride” general admissions are only $19.67.
