ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

the london beatles festival

A weekend wonderland for the Beatles fan of every age; this is also an event for the entire community! Not only do we have some of the world's top Beatles tribute bands playing our stages, and celebrity artists playing tribute - we also have the participation of an exciting roster of Canadian indie musicians of all genres, performing the familiar songs of The Beatles in their own style. We're excited that these indie artists will also be sharing some of their original music, as well as their own unique renditions of the Beatles songs that bring all of us together!

MAIN STREET STAGE

The Fab Four will be our headlining act as they treat us to a magical historical overview: ¬performing from each era of The Beatles as they transformed from mop-tops to psychedelia. They will be performing on our Clarence Street stage, absolutely free to the public. The Main Street Stage will also be filled with an exciting variety of special guest artists, a British Invasion Band, a local theatre group treating us to a sneak-peek performance, a live game show, karaoke and trivia competitions and much, much more!

AND THAT'S NOT ALL

All day long you can wander the festival and enjoy specialty vendors, a Beatles Museum, Beatles movies, public speakers and all the Beatles related fun you can think of! Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are still available. "A SPLENDID TIME IS GUARANTEED FOR ALL!"

The London Beatles Festival was formed to produce and promote music through the timeless songs of The Beatles. Together with Paul Rivard (a local recording artist) as festival director and a team of dedicated board members from local businesses, associations and the community, the aim is to celebrate all things Beatles; the goal is to become the premier Beatles Festival in North America.
