The Best Fest and Jameson are delivering yet another superb showcase of music to celebrate the life of a legendary musician. This Sunday, Sept. 28 the first-ever George Fest: A Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison will take place at the Fonda Theatre. Curated in partnership with the Harrison Estate, the evening’s line-up of famed performers will include: Brian Wilson, Norah Jones, Brandon Flowers & Mark Stoermer of The Killers, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips, Ben Harper, Ann Wilson of Heart, Britt Daniel of Spoon, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Nick Valensi of The Strokes, Dhani Harrison, Ian Astbury, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Butch Walker, Cold War Kids, Karen Elson, Brian Bell of Weezer, Big Black Delta, and many more. To top it all off, George Fest coincides with a major reissue of George Harrison’s first six solo albums, released between 1968 and 1975 on The Beatles’ Apple Records label.
The aforementioned artists will come together to pay tribute to George Harrison through performing their favorite Harrison classics. If you’ve never been to a Best Fest event, let us tell you, it’s one of the most exciting and fun events to attend. From the fans to the musicians and celebrities, everyone is having a damn good time on and off stage, singing and dancing, all while sipping on some tasty Jameson cocktails.
Through the Jameson Neighborhood Fund, 100% of the net ticket sale proceeds will benefit Sweet Relief recipients in the Los Angeles area. The fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.
