Welcome to the offical internet home of
International Beatles Fan Day!
International Beatles Fan Day is June 6!
Beatles Fan Day was created in 2008 so that Beatles fans
everywhere could have one special day they can call their own,
to share their love of the Beatles with their friends, their community,
and the world!
On Beatles Fan Day, Beatles fans get together with friends in groups large
and small, in public venues and private parties, wear their Beatles t-shirts, play Beatles music and
share their memories of the Beatles. It's a day to give thanks for the
Beatles and how they made the world such a better place.
Starting in 2014, and every year thereafter, we're celebrating
Beatles Fan Day with our 6/6@6 event! On June 6 at 6:00pm, Beatles fans
will Come Together to listen to the Beatles' All You Need Is Love, everywhere, all over
the planet, at the same time!
Click here for more info about 6/6@6!
And in addition to local fan celebrations, in the future
we're hoping to have an official celebration, at a venue located in a major
city in the UK and/or the US.
Stay tuned for details about that coming sometime later in 2014!
The Day The Beatles Met George Martin
On June 6, 1962, The Beatles met record producer George Martin for the first
time at EMI Studios on Abbey Road in London.
It was a combination audition and
also proper recording session, and four songs, Besame Mucho, Love Me Do,
P.S. I Love You and Ask Me Why were recorded in early versions on that day.
The tape of the recording session was destroyed some time
thereafter, although a copy of that day's recording of Besame Mucho did survive.
At the end of this session, The Beatles signed a recording contract
The Beatles had already secured Brian Epstein as a manager, who believed in them
like nobody else did. Meeting George Martin, who heard something special in
them where nobody else did, was the final piece in the puzzle of the success of The Beatles.
We celebrate Beatles Fan Day on June 6 to commemorate this so important
day in the history of The Beatles.
Beatles Fan Day in the Classroom
It's also the mission of International Beatles Fan Day to keep the
legacy of the Beatles alive by encouraging the day to be celebrated
by kids in classrooms all over the world.
The music of the Beatles is timeless, we know from direct experience
of parents with their small kids, that once little kids hear the
Beatles, they love them just as much as their parents. And older kids
can learn to appreciate the Beatles' message of peace and love, and
how they so significantly affected today's society and music.
Our goal is to help teachers to come together and share their plans
for Beatles Fan Day, and gather information to help teachers in all
grade levels to put together lesson plans about the history and
worldwide impact of the Beatles to be used in their classrooms
on June 6.
