It was 50 years ago, almost to the day, that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play.The festival is endorsed by surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, who have both sent messages of support.There are concerts of Indian classical music – a major influence on George Harrison – and a film set on a city bus route inspired by "A Day in the Life".To say Liverpool is proud of The Beatles is an understatement. Liverpool has been through tough times since The Beatles split in 1970, and the festival includes notes of melancholy amid the celebration.The festival insists it's not a nostalgia trip.
