Theme 2019 is Come Together
To fight loneliness we decided today that the theme of the 2019 edition will be “Come Together”.
The theme is inspired by the song Come Together of the English rock band the Beatles. The song is written primarily by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. The song is the opening track on their 1969 album Abbey Road and was also released as a single coupled with “Something”. The song reached the top of the charts in the United States and peaked at No. 4 in the United Kingdom.
