Hamburg Music Festival Summer 2013

The fifth annual Hamburg Music Festival on Saturday will be the biggest one yet. Featuring 34 bands playing at 19 venues in the village, it will introduce two new attractions – an outdoor stage in Memorial Park, Lake and Union streets, and an attempt to set a world record for the most people singing the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love.”

Nine bands will appear from 2 to 10 p.m. in Memorial Park, where the world record attempt will be made at 8 p.m. More than half of the venues will offer music in the late afternoon, and seven of them will host afternoon and evening bands.

A $10 wristband, available at any venue, provides access to all the venues and a shuttle bus. Proceeds support scholarships, school music programs and other community activities. For information, visit
