    AARRGGHH!!! We’re going to miss Air Supply by one day! That was the first concert I ever went to and, coincidentally, I saw them in Orlando! Oh well. David Cook/Everclear/Sugar Ray are good, but we saw David Cook 2 years ago and Sugar Ray last year. Might have to plan a quick trip back for 10,000 Maniacs and/or Squeeze. Thanks for posting :)

  2. says

  3. Mike Adams says

    I absolutely love the Food and Wine but starting August…Oh boy…. Nothing like eating Canadian Cheese Soup in 105 degree heat !! Or some sweet red wine while you wipe your forehead. I would rather they keep it running through Christmas then to started in a month thats HOTTER than the original month. The event is so crowded now that everyone knows about it so added that to 95 degrees in the shade and you have a party party….

  4. Jeff says

    I can now finish plans for my Sept 14-24 trip.
    I had to make sure there wasn’t a “can’t miss” band during my vacation.
    I’d been waiting to see if Living Colour (playing later), Night Ranger (not this year), or another surprise act might fall into my dates. No luck.
    Had that happened, I would have switched our plans around.
    I’ll stick with my planned Epcot dates and pass on seeing Air Supply & David Cook (just not my cup of tea).

    Hope some of you got lucky with the acts performing during your vacation.

  5. Courtney says

    My husband was happy to see a band he’s heard of is playing the day we’ll be there lol. Yay!

  6. Sharon says

    Postmodern Jukebox is the best! So sorry I will be missing them by several weeks. If you are in Epcot while they are playing make sure to see them!

  7. Mark says

    Thanks for this post. Part of the fun for us locals is discovering performers we never heard of before. Really enjoyed Delta Rae last year. Never would have listened to them without the festival. And, of course, my wife can’t wait for Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

  8. says

    Wow! Getting Postmodern Jukebox is a big freakin’ deal! Once a big internet sensation that’s now touring the world like gangbusters!

  9. nick says

    cant believe squeeze are going to be there. i see them live at the royal albert hall on 6th november then fly out to florida on 9th november just in time to see them again. i’ll go both nights if i can

  10. Lisa says

    My husband and I are coming from Dallas, TX to see Sister Hazel!!!!!!!! Hazelnuts for life.

  11. Jim rogaine says

    I’m trying to find the actual playing times for Air Supply on Sep 20. Does anyone have that information? Happy

  12. Romoruz says

    I am happy to say I enjoyed three concerts: Starship, Air Supply and Plain White T’s.
    The word is amazing.
    Yes, we have grow old, but this masters keep singing like in the 80’s. I was very impressed.
    And PWT’s were surprisingly good. I even stayed for the second show.
    Wish I could see Kenny G, Billy Ocean and Boys II Men.
