I don't know why this wasn't listed, but next weekend (Memorial Day Weekend) is the Abbey Road on the River festival in Louisville, KY (298 miles, to follow the pattern). - a five-day festival celebrating the music of the Beatles and other great '60s music. Bands come from all over the world to participate; Chicago bands playing there include local favorites Instant Karma and Band on the Run.
