Music festivals offer aural enjoyment until medieval fairs roll into town, distracting concertgoers with impromptu baseball games played with hacky sacks and giant turkey legs. Gear up for today's Renaissance-free Groupon to Abbey Road on the River: for $35, you get a single-day Best Ticket (a $74.40 value, ticketing fee and shipping included). Your Best Ticket is good for guaranteed admission to reserved-seating shows, as well as general admission to various other stages and events.

Abbey Road on the River bills itself as the world's largest Beatles-inspired music festival, with five days of more than 60 bands paying tribute to the oft-overlooked British Invasion act, best remembered for their ditty "Octopus's Garden." Each day of Abbey Road on the River boasts an array of high-quality acts performing on the festival's multiple stages. Eleanor Rigbys and nowhere men alike can see Beatles cover bands and full-on tribute acts from Canada, Puerto Rico, Sweden, England, and Scotland, as well as acts from exotic locales, such as Louisville, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati. For guests who love the Beatles but hate their music, Abbey Road on the River also hosts a plethora of Beatles-related events and activities. At the time of this Groupon, this year's event lineup has yet to be announced.
