**UPDATED 5/23/17**

The 22nd Annual International Food and Wine Festival is generally accepted as one of the most highly anticipated and attended events for Disney guests. Yesterday we shared the release of this year’s extended festival dates and Marketplaces. Today we have more news to share with a look at the very first musical artists you can expect to enjoy at the 2017 Eat to the Beat concert series.

This concert series takes place most nights during the Food and Wine Festival and features acts from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s. Concerts are performed three times per evening (5:30 pm, 6:45 pm, and 8:00 pm) so guests have plenty of opportunities to enjoy their favorite acts. There is no additional cost to attend these concerts as they are included in the price of your EPCOT admission. The concert series are presented in EPCOT’s American Gardens Theater at the America Pavilion in the World Showcase.

Currently we only have a preliminary list for the musical acts coming this year. But stay tuned as we will keep you updated as more information is released.
