It’s almost time for Beatles fans to head back to Jeffersonville, Indiana. Abbey Road on the River, the world’s greatest tribute to the Fab Four, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
More than 50 bands will perform 200 concerts across six stages during the five-day event, taking place May 26-30 at The Big Four Station Park. Artists featured include Tommy James and the Shondells, The Cyrkle and The Fab Four.
Alongside back-to-back live music performances, the five-day outdoor event will feature food, vendors and plenty of room for families to spread out on the Big Four Station lawn. The festival’s two main stages and audience areas are adjacent to the park’s expansive all-ages playground.
“We’ve always been a family event and it’s very special to see families of all ages getting together and enjoying the same incredible music,” festival producer Gary Jacob told Courier Journal. “With the resurgence of post-COVID festivals we’ve all been waiting for, there is no better time than now to support events and the talented musicians who have been waiting to perform for us all.”
The festival offers free entry to guests under the age of 20 with the purchase of a matching adult ticket. Additionally, the event wristbands allow for re-entry, allowing attendees to come and go as they please.
