An indoor music festival is taking place this weekend celebrating 50 years of Beatle music. The Beatles Festival features look-alike & sound-alike tribute acts at the Scarborough Spa providing a 'No Mud' indoor festival - regardless of the Great British weather.
The festival will provide a nostalgic opportunity for those who lived through that musical period and for younger audiences to discover the influencers of Oasis & Robbie Williams and many current pop stars.
Popular artistes include:
- The Mersey Beatles who have been resident at the Cavern Club Liverpool for 10 years and regarded as the definitive Beatles Tribute band.
- The Macca band with Neil Tudor are a Paul McCartney tribute featuring Beatles, Wings and Paul's solo music. Neil Tudor is Paul's official 'double' for adverts & commercial films.
- The Cavernites are a genuine 60's beat group and will set the scene tomorrow to get everyone in the 1960's mood with Beatles, Stones and loads of hits of the period.
- The Beatelles are an All-Girl Beatles tribute band and give a cool twist on Beatle music - watch & listen out for their mix/mash-up of California Dreaming with George Harrison's - While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
- The Beatle 5 have the usual guitar line up plus keyboards so play those scarcer Beatle tunes such as 'Martha my Dear' so a full spectrum of Beatles music is guaranteed.
