Abbey Road on the River

Abbey Road on the River

Memorial Day Weekend
Even decades after the final Beatles recording, the music of the Fab Four from Liverpool, England, is still compelling enough to draw thousands of rock fans together for a single Beatles event. Abbey Road on the River, which takes place along the banks of the Ohio River in Louisville, Ky., is the largest celebration of the band's music in North America. As many as 25,000 town residents attend—along with Beatles fans from all over the world—to see dozens of tribute bands perform on six stages.
The first Abbey Road on the River, in 2002, took place along the banks of the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio. The festivities were moved to their present location in 2006. Once a three-day affair, the festival has expanded to five days, with performances by more than 40 bands at the four outdoor venues of the Riverfront Plaza Belvedere as well as in two indoor theaters in town.
Festival highlights include shows of complete albums, including a 30-member performance of the White Album. In addition to the live music, the event also offers a film festival, lectures, and vendors selling a variety of merchandise, collectibles, and artwork.
