George Fest: A Night To Celebrate the Music of George Harrison

Relive the magic of George Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison, featuring many superstar cameos, with this multi-format release from Hot Records and Vagrant Records…

Recorded and filmed on 28 September 2014 at The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, George Fest brought together a wealth of musical talent to play their favorite George Harrison songs. George’s son Dhani, who co-produced and performed, described his inspiration for the show thus: “I’ve always imagined a small club show where my generation of musicians could cut loose on some of the deeper tracks from his career … I hope you enjoy listening to these as much as I do – they are some of the best interpretations of my father’s songs I could have ever thought possible.”



The diverse array of artists who rocked up for this joyous live tribute – from Brian Wilson to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Norah Jones to Jane’s Addiction front man Perry Farrell – emphasised the breadth of Harrison’s musical influence. It also yielded some memorable one-off collaborations, such as on Handle With Care, performed by Brandon Flowers, Britt Daniel, George’s son Dhani Harrison, Jonathan Bates, Wayne Coyne and ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic.



The event was staged in aid of the Material World Charitable Foundation, which Harrison founded in 1973, and the various George Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison releases will also benefit the charity.

This package is available to order in three main editions, a 2CD+Blu-ray, a 2CD+DVD and and a 3LP 180g vinyl set. At the time of writing Amazon UK are offering the 2CD+Blu-ray for pre-order for the extremely competitive price of £10.99.

On top of the concert footage, the DVD/Blu-Ray discs features interviews with the musicians involved in George Fest talking about Harrison’s influence on their own work.

George Fest: A Night To Celebrate The Music Of George Harrison is released on 26 February 2016.

  3. Halloween Jack says:

    What a waste of vinyl! WTF wants Conan O’Brien, Brandon Flowers, Perry Farrell, and the Flaming Lips covering George?!?! Fuck!
    Weird Al is better than all four combined.
    The first George tribute was the one and only one worth listening to.

  4. Johnny says:

    Had mine on order for over a week since I accidentally came across it on Amazon.

    CD/BluRay for £11? Can’t complain about the price either.
