PATTIE BOYD - APPEARING AT ALL THREE 2008 FESTS!

- George and Pattie first met on the set of A Hard Day’s Night in 1964 and were married two years later. Pattie has written her memoirs, Wonderful Tonight – George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Me. It was Number One on the New York Times Bestsellers list and is told in a warm loving way.This is her very first FEST appearance and we are thrilled and delighted she is joining us. Pattie is also setting up a Special Photo and Fashion Exhibit, where all her signings will be taking place over the three days of each FEST.












DONOVAN – What a thrill it is to present one of the greatest artists of the 1960’s in Las Vegas. The man who penned such standards as Mellow Yellow, Hurdy Gurdy Man, Season of the Witch, Jennifer Juniper, and Atlantis will be speaking all three days and performing on the Monday and Tuesday evenings. This is the 40th Anniversary of the Beatles and Donovan’s visit to India and he plans on a special celebration for our FEST! This is also Donovan’s first public Las Vegas performances, ever!! The only time he ever played in Las Vegas was at a private party opening up the Beatles themed Revolution Lounge at the Mirage last year.

Looking at that guest list, I might have to stop by the NY fest.

I haven't been since 2003. I plan on going to the one in Chicago this August.

I've always wanted to hear George's only sister Lou. I wonder if she'll ever attend another fest.

That's great, BB! I wasn't able to go last year, but hopefully I'll be able to take my son this year.

As I've said before, I'm so glad Neil's coming to the Chicago one! A void in my life will be filled, as i've been waiting to meet him for ages.
