Beatles festival takes long and winding road to Danbury

July 15, 2012 by  

The Danbury Fields Forever Beatles Music Festival will take place at Ives Concert Park on University Blvd. in Danbury, Connecticut. This event begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, July 28.

The festival is being hosted by Charles F. Resenay, owner of Liverpool Productions. His production, the Beatles Expo, has appeared in Connecticut since back in 1978. This is the 50th anniversary of this festival and it is sure to be great for all ages to enjoy.

Acting as a Beatles revival, the showcase will feature many New York and Connecticut bands. The internationally popular tribute band The Beatles Forever actually comes from the Hartford area. Fools on the Hill, another popular tribute band, is from the Milford, New York area and its members dress themselves as a duplicate band, wearing wigs to complete the illusion.

This festival will run for 10 hours and feature 10 tribute bands. Also joining the lineup is Genetic Control, which plays songs more along the Led Zeppelin era and is an extreme opposite to the Danbury Fields Forever Band. The Garage Band Beatles is also in this year’s entertainment lineup and are from New York’s upstate area. From Massachusetts, the Oh-Nos perform a rarer selection of the solo songs and obscure Beatles numbers. One Sweet Dream will be honoring Paul McCartney during this event.

Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to promote this annual festival. Tickets start at $15 per person. For more information, please visit the Danbury Fields Forever Beatles Music Festival website or call 203-837-9226.
