To mark the special occasion, attendees of the event will receive a new unique one-of-a-kind gift. Guests will receive a code from the Jacaranda records team that will allow them to download an E.P featuring Voice O Graph recordings of all the artists on the events bill. This E.P has been recorded on the clubs “1958” straight to vinyl Voice O Graph machine.

The original Jacaranda club will celebrate its 65th birthday this year, it was first opened in 1958 by the Beatles’ first manager Alan Williams. It played a key role in launching the careers of the fab four and also helped other iconic Merseybeat bands such as Gerry and the Pacemakers and Rory Storm and the Hurricanes take off.
