The Beatles Tribute Band 1964 has been a fixture at Roanoke's Festival in the Park for nearly 15 years, but not anymore.

Festival organizers have announced the band will not be playing at this year's Festival in the Park.

That was one of many changes announced at a press conference Tuesday morning.

Festival in the Park takes place Memorial Day weekend in Roanoke's Elmwood Park.

In the past few years, there have been four nights of headliners.  This year, there will only be three nights.

Some of this year's headliners include the Gin Blossoms and country music star Craig Morgan.

We asked EventZone Director Larry Landolt why the Beatles Tribute Band won't be coming back.

"There is a core group of people that truly loves that and we do too but as far as expanding the concerts, expanding the audience, that wasn't necessarily going to do it," said Landolt.

Fans of the show aren't happy.

"That's really going to a put damper.  It might make me decide whether I'm going to come or not," said Festival Goer Pam Casey.

"I think that's really sad.  I think people love a tradition and they've been coming for so many years people sorta expect it," said Festival Goer Lezlie Synder.

Festival in the Park also plans to expand the festival beyond the borders of Elmwood Park.

This year, there will be more activities on Jefferson Street.  Future plans call for activities on Franklin Road and near the city market.

Organizers are also asking more community groups to take part in Festival in the Park.

For example, the Henry Street festival and Fiddlefest will have a presence at this year's festival.

Festival in the Park is also bringing back a discounted group ticket.

There will also be a VIP experience ticket.  This will include a ticket for a food, beverage, and a concert.
