50th Anniversary of Beatles' Arrival In America To Be Celebrated At 2014 "Fest For Beatles Fans"

The initial details for the 2014 Fest For Beatles Fans has been announced by Mark Lapidos, President and Founder of the event.  Celebrating the landmark 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first arrival in America, the Fest will take place on February 7, 8, and 9, 2014 - the exact dates the Fab Four landed at JFK Airport, and made their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. 

That TV show - on February 9th, 1964 - garnered the largest US viewing audience in history, snagging 45% of the total population, a statistic that still stands today.  The 2014 Fest will also celebrate the 40th year Lapidos has been producing this event. 

The 2014 Fest will be held in NYC at the Grand Hyatt Hotel next to Grand Central Station (42nd St. and Lexington Ave.).  The celebration begins on Friday (7) from 5pm through midnight and goes through Saturday (8) and Sunday (9) from 10:30am to midnight.  Among the festivities planned are live concerts by superstar artists of the British Invasion period, newsreel and fan films of the Beatles, the world's largest Beatles memorabilia marketplace, meet &  greet opportunities, a fashion show, Q+A panels, dance parties, performances by some of the top new emerging indie bands and sponsorships with top national music magazine and radio stations.

Full details are expected to be revealed within days.

A newly designed website for The Fest For Beatles Fans is slated to be unveiled in early November at
