Disney Reveals Talent List For 2017 ‘Eat To The Beat’ Concert Series At Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Disney has finally released the talent list for the “Eat to the Beat” concert series that takes place at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. With a festival that is longer than ever this year at Walt Disney World, more acts and even bigger names should be showing up. That is exactly what is happening, with 11 new performers coming in this year, and the list looks phenomenal.

Early on Thursday morning, the Disney Parks Blog revealed the talent list for “Eat to the Beat,” and you won’t believe some of the names showing up this year. There will indeed be 11 new acts who have never performed at Epcot during this series before, and it will be hard to figure out who you want to go see.

As a matter of fact, you may end up wanting to see every single one of them if you have the chance.

With 75 days to enjoy the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot, you’ll have plenty of chances to catch the different concerts, but who will you see? Kenny G will be there, along with Squeeze, 10,000 Maniacs, and even the Baha Men.
