Beatles Festival

June 30 to July 01, 2023

The year 2020 is all about the Beatles. Exactly 60 years ago, the British rock band gave its first concert in Hamburg. However, the next festival will not take place in Hamburg until 30 June to 1 July 2023.

17 August 1960: A previously unknown band from England gives its first concert in Hamburg's Indra music club. The day writes music history. A short time later, the mushroom heads from Liverpool storm the top of the music charts. 2020 marks the 60th anniversary of the Beatles' first appearance in Hamburg. Unfortunately, the festival is cancelled in 2022. However, the Beatles Festival is planned again for the following year. Save the date from 30 June to 01 July 2023!

Time travel: The Swinging Sixties

Experienced cover bands and young artists will perform the songs of the Beatles in old-fashioned and newly staged settings. The festival stages will be the places where the Beatles themselves once performed in Hamburg. You can experience a journey back to the Swinging Sixties at venues such as Musikclub Indra, Kaiserkeller and Große Freiheit 36.  

In this sense: Here comes the Sun!

Hamburg North is a wonderful place to live. The city centre can be reached in no time, and there is plenty of nature nearby. Everything goes at a slightly slower pace here. But there are still many things to see and do.
