[Posted by Adam Forrest on Friday, 05/18/12 3:41 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

It has been announced that members of the U.S. military and their families can now get free tickets to the largest Beatles-inspired festival in the world, which will take place at Belvedere Park and Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky from May 24-28th.

Over 60 international bands will "come together" in Louisville at the WHAS 11 Abbey Road on the River, where guests will enjoy indoor and outdoor concerts, film screenings, a Beatles merchandise market, a display from Gretsch Guitars, and much more, including an encore of the LOVE concert and the 45th Anniversary of the Sgt. Pepper album show.


After kicking off the summer in Louisville, the festival will once again travel to Washington, D.C. to close the summer with a 5-day show over Labor Day Weekend, August 30th -September 3rd. The Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor will host thousands of fans celebrating the Fab Four on the banks of the Potomac River.

Festival producer Gary Jacob commented, "I was inspired by Memorial Day and the one year anniversary of First Lady Michelle Obama's Joining Forces campaign, so I wanted to share some peace and love with any of our military who want to come and enjoy to this event."

To redeem the free tickets, just show a valid military I.D. at the box office upon arrival. Family members with a dependant I.D. can also get tickets (limit 4), which are valid for all five days of rock-n-roll Memorial Day weekend event. For more info, check out www.arotr.com.
