Celebrate Beatles Fan Day - 6/6@6

In June 1967, the first global satellite television show, Our World, was broadcast. 19 nations were invited to contribute to the show, the Beatles appeared representing the UK. On that day, 400 million people in 31 countries all around the world listened to the Beatles sing All You Need Is Love for the first time.

"It was an inspired song and they really wanted to give the world a message," said Brian Epstein. "The nice thing about it is that it cannot be misinterpreted. It is a clear message saying that love is everything."

Now, 51 years later, we celebrate International Beatles Day by getting together and sharing that same song at the same time, recreating that historic event and spreading the Beatles' message of love once again all around the world.

6/6@6 (pronounced "six six at six") means that on International Beatles Fan Day, June 6, at 6:00 pm, we all gather together to listen to the Beatles' All You Need is Love at the same time.

Because Beatles Fan Day is celebrated internationally, fans have the choice of either celebrating 6/6@6 at 6:00 pm their local time, or at 6:00 pm in Liverpool (BST, British Summer Time). Or, you can chose to celebrate at both times!
