A new permanent exhibition devoted to The Beatles is to be officially opened in Hamburg during the city’s annual music festival Reeperbahn next week (September 24-26).

The five-floor interactive exhibit begins with taking fans back to the Beatles‘ arrival in Hamburg, in the 1960s – then on to the Star Club, Abbey Road Studios (where you can sing ‘with’ the Fab Four) and then on stage, before meeting and being photographed with Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band amongst other things.

Music memorabilia from Beatles‘ posters and records to soaps and lampshades as well as meticulous period furnishings and street scenes fills the first interactive Beatles trail experience.

The fourth annual Reeperbahn festival has today announced it’s complete line-up – and across three days, the city will see headline shows from established artists like Dinosaur Jr, Seasick Steve, Editors and CSS, as well as showcasing smaller, folk, rock and indie acts like Au Revoir Simone, Part Chimp, Animal Kingdom, Future of the Left and Fleet FoxesJ Tillman.

150 bands will play around the city, and up to 20,000 people will be able to discover new music at ten venues each night, including the one where The Beatles played their first show in Hamburg, the Kaiserkeller.
