The annual Beatles’ Festival, Abbey Road on the River, has been held in Louisville since 2005, when it moved from Cleveland, OH. The event brings roughly 20,000 attendees into the downtown area every year for the five day festival. Last year, festival organizers said they were considering moving the event due to issues with the Galt House and that 2016 would be the last year for the festival in Louisville.
Starting next year, the event will be on the other side of the river in Jeffersonville, IN for the next three years. The festival will take place at RiverStage, Marina, and Big Four Station Park. The Clarion Inn and Sheraton Riverside Hotel will serve as the headquarters for the event.
The event will be held here in Louisville this year at it’s normal time, Memorial Day Weekend. Instead of the Galt House, the sponsoring hotel is the Louisville Marriott. Headliners this year will include Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals and the Zombies. Tickets are available for purchase on the website.
