What’s a summer fest without the music of The Beach Boys? SoCal’s favorite surf-pop group is headed to the Bluegrass state for “The World’s Largest Beatles Inspired Music Festival” as this year’s headliners for the Abbey Road On The River fest in Louisville, KY.

According to USA Today, The Beach Boys will help celebrate 50 years of Beatlemania at the Abbey Road On The River fest, a five-day event kicking off over Memorial Day weekend from May 22-26.

The fest features over 60 live bands on eight stages spread out over the five days, including John Sebastian of The Lovin’ Spoonful, who will open for The Beach Boys, Ambrosia with special guest Laurence Juber and plenty of Beatles tributes.

In addition to the music, Beatles fans will get to hear from Beatles’ longtime secretary, Freda Kelly, for special Q&A sessions following screenings of her documentary Good Ol Freda.

Take a look at the complete schedule of events on Abbey Road On The River’s website.
