Check out which musical acts will take to the stage during this year’s EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival with a look at the lineup.
Year after year, the annual EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival welcomes a whole host of exciting entertainment, activities, and (of course) outdoor kitchens. One of the standouts of the festival? The Garden Rocks Concert Series! From famous bands to GRAMMY Award-winning artists, you can catch some seriously impressive acts while you’re tasting delicious dishes and exploring all of the outdoor scenery this festival has to offer.
Who can you expect to catch at the 2023 Garden Rocks Concert Series? Here’s the lineup of the acts coming to this year’s EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.
What is the Garden Rocks Concert Series?
This much-beloved Walt Disney World entertainment occurs only during the Flower & Garden Festival at EPCOT each year. Starting in March, the concert series runs throughout the duration of the festival from March to July.
Concerts take place every day of the week at the America Gardens Theater. However, the acts you’ll be able to see for free (with your valid theme park admission and park reservation) do vary depending on the day you’re headed to EPCOT. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, you’ll be able to catch performances that showcase local Orlando talent. Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, you can tune into concerts by internationally recognized artists.
This year, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will offer a concert lineup that includes incredible returning talent – like The Pointer Sisters, Simple Plan, and the Plain White T’s – along with newcomers who are visiting the festival for the first time. These newcomers include legacy guitarist AJ Croce and GRAMMY Award-winning band Switchfoot.
