Hofner official sponsors of International Beatleweek plus a very special guest announced

Wednesday, 23 March 2016

We are proud to announce that this years International Beatleweek will be officially sponsored by our good friends Höfner.

2016 sees the iconic Höfner violin bass celebrate its 60th Anniversary. The 5th August 2016 brings us the 50th Anniversary of the release of The Beatles 7th studio album, Revolver. Put these two special anniversaries together and what have we come up with?…

International Beatleweek 2016 in conjunction with Höfner are proud to present…Klaus Voormann

Klaus Voormann, artist, musician and good friend of the Beatles will be making a very rare appearance at our Beatles convention on Sunday 28th August at the Adelphi Hotel. Klaus famously designed the cover of Revolver which earned the band a Grammy Award for “Best Album Cover, Graphic Arts”. This year Klaus has designed a special limited edition and Revolver inspired violin bass to commemorate the two anniversaries. We’re excited to offer the opportunity to see this beautiful bass guitar and to listen to Klaus discuss Revolver and his remarkable career.

Nick Wass, Marketing Manager at Höfner says, “Höfner Guitars, makers of the iconic 500/1 Violin Beatle Bass, are pleased to be returning to Liverpool again this year for International Beatleweek 2016. We are also very proud to be sponsoring the event this year and to be presenting someone who needs no introduction, the legendary Klaus Voormann. We look forward to a fantastic week of great music, good friends and late nights!”

With the plethora of Beatles ‘Inner Sanctum’ luminaries already booked, it looks like this years festival is going to be bigger and better than ever.
