With this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival taking place even earlier than ever before (the event kicks off August 31 and lasts through November 13), we are that much closer to the event. I mean it’s literally happening in almost two months time, so it will be here before we know it!

Today, we have the information for who will be performing at this year’s Eat to the Beat Concert Series. During this concert series, bands and solo artists perform some of their most popular songs nightly. Oh and since there’s more days of the festival than ever before, that means there are more new performers too! This year, there will be 11 new performers to the Eat to the Beat series  including Jazz Legend Kenny G, and pop superstars like 10,000 Maniacs and Squeeze.

Of course, there will be some familiar faces at this year’s festival too. Artists like Taylor Dane, Tiffany, STARSHIP, Sugar Ray, Boyz II Men, and my personal favorite, Hanson will all return. (I’m going to miss Hanson AGAIN!!! ARGH!)

This year’s schedule is as follows:

  • 8/31 – 9/1 – Delta Rae (“Bottom of the River”)
  • 9/2 – 9/3 – The Hooters (“And We Danced”) NEW!

Do keep in mind that artists are subject to change.
Eat to the Beat concerts take place in the America Gardens Theatre at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. The show is included in your theme park admission.

I have to say that these Eat to the Beat concerts are always a lot of fun, and you can tell the performers are excited to be on stage performing at Walt Disney World. Which artist are you most excited to see?

  • I am so bummed out by this!!! If I had the flexibility, I would move my trip LOL
    Seriously, would LOVE to see HANSON! Or Blue October. Or several others on that list. So sad none of my favs will be there when we are!

    • We are there for Tiffany, Hanson and Blue October. Not thrilled about any of them. Tiffany was big when I was young so there’s some nostalgia, but I find Hanson to be annoying and I have no idea who Blue October is. Whoever is there, we’ll probably just hear them as background music as we stroll World Showcase.

      • Haha!
        Air Supply & David Cook will be my background music.

      • Hanson is not the pop band of the 90’s. They are amazing Indie Rock artists with a fantastic sound. If you stick around to listen that day, you will be blown away. Super bummed I will miss it.

    Sadly the band I’d be most excited to see, Delta Rae, will be playing over a week before I arrive! Ah, well; I’m not sure how much time I’ll get to spend at Epcot anyway, and my schedule is packed already. I don’t even know how much of the food and wine I’ll be able to sample.

  • Please don’t refer to Kenny G as a jazz legend.

  • I was considering a quick trip 9/14-17 with my daughter. Her name is Delilah. I’ll take that as a sign 🙂

  • Don’t they usually do dining packages? I can’t find those available to book? It’s weird because candlelight packages are up.
