Multiple slots remain unfilled on the lineup — including the final stretch of the festival from Nov. 8-19 — so Food & Wine fans can expect to see a complete schedule to be announced at a later date.
Eat to the Beat has been absent from the festival since the COVID-19 pandemic began. In 2020 and 2021, the theater space was instead occupied by a rotating set of regular Epcot performers. Touring musicians returned to Epcot earlier this year with the similar Garden Rocks series that runs during the International Flower & Garden Festival.
As usual, the Eat to the Beat concerts are included with regular admission to Epcot. Each act will perform three times per day.
