It’s that time of year again, Epcot Food and Wine Festival Fans!
You know that here at DFB we pride ourselves on reporting Epcot Food and Wine Festival Info just as soon as we have it! And today, we’re sharing with you a look at the VERY FIRST artists you can expect to return for the 2017 Eat to the Beat concert series!
Just in case you’re new to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, lemme tell you a little about what all this means. Eat to the Beat is a concert series that takes place during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, which runs this year from August 31-November 13. The series features musical acts from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s each year, and concerts take place most evenings of the Festival.
Since this partial list is preliminary, be sure to stay tuned to the Disney Food Blog for additions and/or changes to the schedule! We will bring you all the latest news first!
Eat to the Beat concerts are performed three times per evening, so you have three opportunities every night to see your favorite acts — at 5:30PM, 6:45PM, and 8:00PM.
