Food and Wine Festival Updates

We’ve got the latest on a few Eat to the Beat concert line-up listings ALREADY for 2014!

For those who don’t know, Epcot brings in several bands and musicians popular in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s each year to entertain Epcot Food and Wine Festival guests in the evenings. Concert-goers can start making festival plans to see their favorite group during the festival, which runs September 19-November 10, 2014.

    Looking forward to seeing the schedule this year. I’m going in October so I’ll have more Food & Wine time.

  2. Meredith says:

    I’d love to see Blues Traveler again! Boys 2 Men is always good too.

  3. caroline says:

    Blues travler yes i went to school with lead singer. Oh n please mark McGrath

  4. Chris Watts says:

    Sister Hazel we always book when they play always!!

  5. Carla says:

    Hope Night Ranger schedules again!

  6. Kate says:

    No additional… HA! That’s if you don’t mind what would be considered ‘nosebleed’ (in a regular theater) seats way in the back as in don’t expect a decent picture. The way things have been going Disney has been filling 2/3 of the America gardens theater with dinner package guests, WHICH DOES cost extra. When my grandparents went to see the candlelight processional my grandmother, in a wheelchair, got placed way in the back, behind a tree. They stayed for the other shows, trying to get a better seat and said it was the same, most of the theater was reserved for Dinner Package guests. I’m hoping it will be different for eat to the beat.

  7. Dave Menard says:

    We’ll be there for Pointer Sisters!!! yay!!

  8. AJ says:

    Kate — The only reserved seats for Eat to the Beat are 3D Dessert Party and Party for the Senses guests, I believe.

  9. Deb says:

    Hoping to see Dennis DeYoung in the line-up for November again this year as well as Air Supply in October. . .last year we were fortunate to fly down for both . . .would love to do the same again this year! Keeping fingers crossed!!

  10. Sandra says:

    I love Starship! Can’t wait to hear them. We build this city is now playing in my head.
    I would love to see REO Speedwagon!!!

  11. Debra says:

    When is the dates and people who are cooking/presenting for the events. Then what is the presale for annual passholders before the regular public

  12. AJ says:

    Debra — We don’t have any of that information yet. Stay tuned to our Epcot Food and Wine Festival page for details:

  13. Libby says:

    In my dreams…Prince would be a nice treat. But wait, it is the most magical place on earth.

  14. Carol says:

    I saw Kansas play Dust In The Wind a few years back at the Food and Wine Festival and I will never forget it! Beautiful sound.

  15. D.P. says:

    I soundly second the recommendation of having REO Speedwagon at the Fest, and I’d love to see Dennis DeYoung too! We’ve gone to a handful of REO and Styx concerts over the years, and they never disappointed. We’ve seen Sister Hazel at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival twice, and they were awesome on both occasions. We’d love to see them again and Better Than Ezra who played at the 2009 Fest, but haven’t been back since.

  16. Scott Wenner says:

    Bring back Expose’. They were spectacular both years we’ve seen them in the past.

  17. Steve Krayski says:

    Sure would like to see Sugar Ray again!! What a high energy show…. sounds better than ever!!

  18. John says:

    Enjoyed many of the performers over the years, but none more than ‘Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’.

  19. Sarah says:

    Richard Marx please!

  20. MJ says:

    Hey everyone I got engaged during Sister Hazels 3rd set last year. We are putting together our scrapbook from it for the impending wedding and would love to see if anyone has any other shots of it anything you may have would be greatly appreciated!
