Launched in 1974, The Fest for Beatles Fans (formerly known as Beatlefest) has been bringing fans of the mop-topped quartet together every summer in Chicago. Rock out to concerts by Liverpool, the festival’s house band since the late ‘70s, Peter Asher & Jeremy Clyde, Billy J. Kramer, Roy Orbison Jr. and The Weeklings, then geek out on every type of Beatles-related ephemera imaginable at the massive Giant Beatles Marketplace, where you can find all manner of rare Beatles merch from both sides of the pond — with everything from mint vinyl records to vintage “I Love Ringo!” buttons. There’ll also be Beatles trivia game shows, a second Apple Jam Stage where younger artists interpret The Beatles, a culinary tribute, Beatles authors, friends and family (including Double Fantasyproducer Jack Douglas), and much more, all at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont.
