Wilson’s World: Previewing Charlotte’s First Weekend Beatles Festival, Tosco Music’s FABFEST
Tosco Music's FABFEST Beatles Weekend will be held Friday, June 14th through Sunday, June 16th.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – If you are a Beatles fan like Wilson is (remember, he named his rescue pup George Harrison), then you will be excited for Charlotte’s first Beatles Festival, FABFEST, coming in June thanks to Tosco Music. Wilson was with John Tosco and Daniel Coston with Tosco Music giving us all of the information about next month’s big event for Beatles fans.
FABFEST includes 2 evening concerts at Knight Theater in Uptown Charlotte, and 2 days of live music, speakers, panels and activities at Fairfield by Marriott on Saturday and Sunday. One of the speakers that will be at the event is Peter Asher who was 1/2 of the 60’s duo Peter and Gordon, a friend of The Beatles as well as head of A&R for The Beatles record company that formed in 1968. He has produced such acts as James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt and comedian Robin Williams. Peter still produces and he currently also has a show on The Beatles Channel on Sirius XM and tours with fellow 60’s artist Jeremy Clyde.
FABFEST musical performances at Knight Theater include Emmy winning Beatles tribute band “The Fab Four” as well as a Tosco Music Beatles Tribute. There will be live music and plenty of Beatles related activities the entire weekend, including rare Beatles concert footage, trivia contests, name that Beatles tune contest, and a lot more.
All daytime festival activities and live music will be held at Fairfield by Marriott, located one mile from Knight Theater. There are various ticket options for the event including VIP packages as well as daytime event tickets. Also great package prices at the Fairfield Marriott for those making it an official Beatles weekend.
