What Is Global Beatles Day?

Founded in 2009 by Faith Cohen, Global Beatles Day is a “universal love letter” to the British band. Music lovers celebrate the huge impact The Beatles’ greatest hits had on international pop culture. Fans also take the day to acknowledge how the band touched the world with messages of peace and positivity.

There’s a reason we celebrate the Fab Four on June 25 each year. On this day in 1967, The Beatles unveiled their song “All You Need Is Love” on the world’s first live satellite television broadcast. The legendary performance was viewed by over 350 million people across the planet. This just goes to show the band’s wide reach and pioneering role in music, which hasn’t faded over the last 50 years!
