2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival News! More Eat to the Beat Concert Series Acts

The news about the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival continues to trickle in. We are keeping our ears to the ground to bring you all of the news as soon as we get it!


While we await pieces of information like more details about the 35 booths celebrating 35 years of Epcot and when The Chew might be in town this year, we’re also keeping an eye on just which acts we can expect to see for Eat to the Beat.

The Eat to the Beat Concert Series takes place nearly every night of the festival. Shows are scheduled three times each evening, so you’re guaranteed to be able to catch your favorite acts, even if you have special events or low cost demonstrations or seminars booked.

We’re still awaiting the full line up — it could be announced any day now — but today, we’re sharing with you a few additional acts that we’ve learned about in recent days!

As always, the information we share is subject to change. For the very latest information on this year’s festival, keep an eye on our main 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival page. And for the very latest updates delivered directly to you, subscribe to the DFB Newsletter!

    It figures, the only one I’ve never heard of, is the one that will be paying when I am there, lol. Anyone know who Shane Hennessey is?

  2. Sam Grifasi says

    Yes. Hanson will be back. Spoke to them personally a month ago in Tulsa at Hanson day. Zac said around the same time as last year (Halloween) now just waiting on the official post. So we can book our room.

  3. Brandi Davis says

    I am looking forward to seeing Blue October!!! How do we know the exact times they will play… or do they automatically play 3 times each day?

  4. DFB Sarah says

    Brandi, there are three performances scheduled for every day of the series. Performances are scheduled at 5:30, 6:45, and 8:00. Enjoy the concert!
