Beatle-ful music to raise funds for Sandy Hook

July 1, 2013 by  

Officials at Ives Concert Park in Danbury, Connecticut will be marking the 50th anniversary of the Beatle’s last live performance at the Cavern Club in Liverpool next month by hosting an event called ‘Danbury Fields Forever’.

It’s a music festival that will include 10 bands specializing in covering Beatles tunes from different periods in the history of what many still consider to be the best rock and roll band ever.

The festival will take place at Ives Concert Park, a world-class performing arts center situated on the campus of Western Connecticut State University. All proceeds from the festival will go towards a charity set up to help the families of victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. In addition to live music, the festival will also include vendors offering food and art for sale, along with exhibitors and a play area for the children.

Those interested in serving as a sponsor for the event can purchase advertising space at the festival, which can include banner printing done by a professional printing company. Site space ranges in price from $300 to $5,000. Also available for purchase are various package ‘Ticket to Ride’ deals that include seats, meals, drinks, and backstage access. Additional information can be found on the festival’s web site.

The concert will be held August 3 and admission will be $20 per person, with gates opening at noon and close at 8:00 pm. People of all ages are invited to come out and enjoy the music and family-friendly atmosphere.
